Emily Steel

Trainee Solicitor - New Homes

What's your role?

I am a Trainee Solicitor in the New Homes team. 

Your experience

I graduated in 2014 with a First in Law and went on to achieve a Distinction on the LLM LPC, which I studied at the University of Law in Guildford. 

Prior to starting my training contract I worked as a Paralegal in the Court of Protection team at Coffin Mew. My role involved managing the affairs and safeguarding the welfare of vulnerable individuals who lack mental capacity to make decisions themselves. 

I supported a broad range of clients during my time with the team, ranging from those who have suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of medical negligence or personal injury, to those with mental illnesses or dementia. I enjoy spending time getting to know each client and their family which helps me to provide a personalised service tailored to their individual needs.
