Ella Swanwick, Trainee Solicitor, Disputes Team at Hedges Law

Ella Swanwick


I studied Law at Oxford Brookes University before completing my Legal Practice Course and Masters at The University of Law in Birmingham.

I am currently working in the disputes team, specialising in inheritance, wills and trust disputes, after working in the private client team, supporting clients with a range of matters including probate, estate administration, and wills.

I also worked in a family law department at another solicitors in Oxford before moving to Hedges, whilst I studied part time for the LPC.

I am passionate about fitness and absolutely love being active. Outside of work, I have a busy training schedule which is a mixture of Crossfit and weightlifting. I also practise yoga and meditation on a daily basis. I was a dancer for 15 years and dancing has always been a passion of mine, so I also attend a Zumba class twice a week which brings me so much joy!
