Joanna Cox

Conveyancing Executive - New Homes

What's your role?

I am currently working as a full-time fee earner in the New Homes team. I manage my own case load of around 8 different developments; progressing each case from initial client instruction to legal completion. I act for individuals who are purchasing a new home and/or selling a residential property, as well as acting for lenders to ensure that their interests in the property are adequately protected.

Your experience

I have gained thorough experience of dealing with property transactions since graduation from the University of the West of England in 2014, where I obtained a First class qualifying Law degree.

I started off my legal career in a different practice, where I also worked in the New Homes department. I rapidly developed my legal understanding of Property law and practice, and progressed from an assistant to fee-earner level within 10 months. Subsequently, I joined Coffin Mew in July 2015 to enhance my legal experience and acquire further challenges and responsibilities within my career.

Alongside working for Coffin Mew, I am currently undertaking the Legal Practice Course on a part time basis; in the hope of achieving my goal of becoming a qualified solicitor in the foreseeable future.
