He started his legal career working in a high street firm as a Paralegal in the Private Client department before developing a focus in Residential Conveyancing and joining Simpson Millar in March 2021.
Outside of Work
Devan enjoys spending time with his young son and travelling to new places. One of his favourite places to visit was the Dominican Republic and he also enjoyed seeing the Mediterranean on a sea cruise. Devan’s favourite ‘staycation’ is St. Ives in Cornwall where his family have been every year since he was a child.
