Janine HobsonSolicitor & Notary

Job role at EMG

I am a Solicitor and Notary Public, having joined EMG in April 2020. As a Solicitor I am based within the COP team at EMG and assist the other solicitors there with their caseloads. I can put my hand to most things!


I have over 30 years experience as a Solicitor mainly having undertaken contentious work. Having previously worked for established law firms in both the North East and North West I have lots of experience of all sorts of work.

What do you like about working at EMG?

Everyone is so helpful and supportive. I can hardly believe that I have started a new job during the covid-19 pandemic, but all I can say is that everyone at EMG has been fantastic. I really do feel extremely fortunate to be working for such an amazing and innovative firm, although all the talk of cake in virtual team meetings makes me hungry !

Outside of EMG

I love walking my little dog (whose hair I do every day), cycling around on my Brompton bicycle, gardening, flower arranging, vegetarian cookery and meeting up with my friends and family. I usually also assist with stewarding and administering at Sunderland Minster Church, but it is virtual attendance at the moment only. I am a very early riser and I am always busy!
