Lesley Flynn studied Business Studies and graduated from Heriot Watt University. She went on to gain several years' administrative experience running a busy office, before leaving her position to join the Faculty in 1996. Lesley subsequently qualified as a paralegal and, having spent only two years as a Deputy Clerk, was quickly appointed as a Clerk securing her own Stable.
Over nearly a decade, the Flynn Stable grew from strength to strength gaining a reputation for primarily commercial law. As a result of Lesley's growing reputation, many of the leading Counsel at the Scottish Bar joined the Stable, both Senior Counsel and Junior Counsel alike who were later to become members of Axiom.
In 2007, Axiom Advocates was formed creating a new challenge. Lesley joined Axiom at its advent as a Practice Manager and leads the clerking team there.
