Leamington Editorial 30th May, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

SOLICITOR Jaz Virk has celebrated her new job with a beer at the House of Commons.

The lawyer, who has just joined the wills & probate department at Leamington law firm Blythe Liggins, was at the Palace of Westminster with her husband Surj, where his creation, Empress Ale, is being served as a guest beer.

Jaz, who lives in Leamington, said: “I love being a solicitor, especially back in Leamington, and I thought the House of Commons was an exciting place to celebrate my new job with a glass of Empress Ale, which my husband created and is brewed in Leicestershire,” she said.

Jaz, who specialises in the administration of estates, is a former pupil of King Henry VIII School in Coventry. She gained her LLB at the University of Keele, attended the College of Law in Chester and qualified as a private client solicitor in 2003.

She has joined Blythe Liggins after five years with Sydney Mitchell in Birmingham.
