What's my role?

I am a Trainee Solicitor at Coffin Mew, in my third seat with the Commercial and Intellectual Property seat. My second seat was in the Dispute Resolution department. 

 

My experience

I studied my Law LLB at the University of East Anglia and before joining Coffin Mew have had a number of years experience in the legal profession, in particular in the Real Estate sector.

I relocated from the Midlands to Southampton in 2013 and joined a national firm as a Commercial Real Estate Paralegal acting for retail clients, specialising in Landlord and Tenant law.  During this time I also completed the Legal Practice Course at The University of Law in Guildford.  After four years I then joined a regional firm in Winchester as a Property Finance Paralegal acting for lenders in taking security of commercial and residential investment properties and property portfolios, before then commencing my training contract with Coffin Mew in September 2018.

My first training seat with Coffin Mew was in the Residential Property team and during this seat I dealt with all types of freehold and leasehold sale, purchase, remortgage, transfer of equity and new lease transactions, ensuring every client received a personal yet professional service from start to finish on every transaction.
