Retired lawyer and ex-Edge Hill Chair of Governors Michael Pinfold was made an Honorary Doctor of the University at Edge Hill on Wednesday 22nd July. In this video he speaks to former EHSU Vice-President Thomas Hurdsfield about his successful career and his advice to graduates.

Wirral-born Michael Pinfold enjoyed a stellar career as a lawyer – admitted as a solicitor in 1970 and going on to specialise in company law, Michael became the first Company Secretary of the Universities’ Superannuation Scheme, as well as advising companies as diverse as Pilkington’s, Johnsons the Cleaners and the Blue Funnel Line. His work for pension funds underpinned investments in many of the shopping centres, retail and industrial parks we use today.
