From 1980 until 1997 she worked in-house for banks and financial institutions based in the City of London and abroad where her practice concerned mainly company commercial matters, banking and financial services, insolvency, insurance and security matters although in the course of her work also involved dealing with issues of planning, landlord & tenant, employment, road traffic, nuisance, professional negligence and other torts.
From 1998 to 2018 Angela, whilst maintaining a commercial law consultancy, worked mainly as a lecturer at the University of Law where besides teaching company commercial subjects, she taught partnership, EU Law (including immigration aspects) wills and probate as well as assessing skills including oral skills such as advocacy.
