I am a trainee Solicitor and since joining the firm in 2015, I have been working across the specialist departments on a six month rotation. I am currently based in the Private Client department, assisting the team with all aspects of their Wills, Tax and Probate caseload. In particular, I will be leading our contribution to the Will Aid campaign including taking appointments, drafting wills and answering enquiries.
Previously, I gained experience within the Dispute Resolution team across specialisms including Litigation, Personal Injury and Employment. My role involved working with the experienced lawyers in the team to help resolve disputes, investigate accidents and injuries and provide advice to employers and employees. My responsibilities included undertaking legal research of case law and statutory principles, obtaining and drafting witness statements and preparing bundles and instructions to Counsel.
Before starting at Hatch Brenner, I studied Law at Nottingham Trent University and completed the Legal Practice Course at Kaplan Law School. I am currently carrying out my Professional Skills Course through BPP.
