Emily Steel

My role

I am currently in my fourth seat in the Restructuring and Insolvency team and am due to qualify in September 2019. I have previously undertaken training seats in New Homes, Court of Protection and Dispute Resolution, and am due to qualify in September 2019.

My 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. I worked as a paralegal in the Court of Protection team at Coffin Mew before starting as a trainee and was pleased to return to the team for the second seat of my training contract. I have supported a wide range of clients, from individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of medical negligence or personal injury, to those suffering from mental illness or dementia.

I was based in the New Homes team for the first seat of my training contract, acting for purchasers of new build properties. Undertaking a property seat was an invaluable experience and I developed my knowledge in all aspects of the conveyancing process.

Alongside work, I sit on the committee of the South Hampshire Junior Lawyers division and help organise social events for junior lawyers in the community.
