I have had 35 years’ experience as a verbatim reporter producing transcripts from shorthand notes and latterly audio recordings. From 1982-1989 I worked as a court reporter, mainly in Cardiff and other courts in Wales but also some London courts. From 1990 I worked as a freelance verbatim reporter covering courts, depositions, arbitrations and Select Committees for well-known court reporting firms. Since 2010 I worked for T A Reed & Co Ltd, firstly as the Business Manager and latterly as a Director. On 1 April 2017 I became Managing Director of T A Reed (Wiltshire) Ltd.
