Elizabeth Russell


I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2013 with a First Class Honours Degree in Law with Journalism.

I joined Crane & Staples in 2015 as a Legal Administrator, whilst studying the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in London and graduated with a Distinction.

Having completed my training contract at the firm, I qualified as a Solicitor in April 2018.

I assist clients in the Family Department as well as the Employment & Dispute Resolution Department.

I am the Vice Chairperson of the Hertfordshire Junior Lawyers Division.

Outside the Office

I enjoy countryside walks and baking and where possible try to combine these with my passion for charity work.

I completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge (a continuous walk of 25 miles and over 7,000 ft in just 12 hours) to raise money for the Isabel Hospice.

Each year, I take part in the Great Legal Bake to raise money for local charities. Last year, I won “Best Cake” for my ‘Soft Brexit’ entry and this year won “Best Legal Cake”.

Elizabeth, thank you so much for being so understanding and helpful, I really appreciate that.
