Lauren Kendell

Trainee Solicitor - Residential Property

What's your role?

I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Residential Property team (Thames Valley).

Your experience

I studied Law LLB at the University of Sussex and I first became involved in private client work (including wills, trusts, probate and residential property,) whilst working at a firm in Whiteley. I joined Coffin Mew as a Legal Assistant in the New Homes team and during this time, I completed my Legal Practice Course in Guildford.

I then moved to the Court of Protection team, where I was a Paralegal for two and a half years. My role mainly involved managing the affairs and  welfare of people who were no longer able to do so for themselves, such as people who lack capacity because of an illness or catastrophic injury. As well as having experience of Deputyships, I also competently managed the financial affairs of clients who had Lasting Powers of Attorneys.  I provided advice to lay Deputies and Attorneys regarding their powers and duties, so that they could act in the client’s best interests at all times.  I enjoy getting to know clients on a individual basis, which allows me to provide a personalised client experience.
