What’s my role?

I am Trainee Solicitor assisting both the Corporate and Dispute Resolution teams based in the Brighton office. Previously, I was in the Court of Protection team and the Clinical and Catastrophic Injury team before that.

As I am split across two practice areas, the work that I touch on is incredibly varied. My work assisting the dispute resolution team concerns on the more contentious side of things like disputes over partnership agreements, breaches of construction and other contracts and resolving shareholder disagreements. However, I also help out with the non-contentious work the Corporate team undertake such as the preparing and distribution of board resolutions, company constitutional and structural matters and dealing with investments into all kinds of businesses.

This split makes the role fascinating, intellectually stimulating and challenging but, most of all, incredibly rewarding.

My experience

I obtained my undergraduate degree in Music Industry Management in 2015 at the University of East London; achieving a 1st class honours award classification. I then went on to complete both the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law in Guildford. I combined my LPC with a Master of Laws in Professional Legal Practice and achieved a Distinction grade in both my GDL and LPC. I secured my training contract at Coffin Mew in August 2017, before joining the firm as a paralegal in the Commercial Property department in September 2017 and starting my training contract in September 2018.
