I enjoy working with a range of clients, both employers and individuals, and am particularly interested in dealing with business professionals.
I began my training contract at BPE in April 2016 and am now a newly qualified solicitor in the Corporate team.
I began my training contract in the firm’s Employment team, where I assisted the team with a range of Employment issues including research, settlement agreements, TUPE queries, unfair dismissal and discrimination claims.
My second seat was in the firm’s Corporate department, where I assisted on deals involving publicly listed companies. This often involved reviewing substantial amounts of documentation and drafting lengthy documents which required acute attention to detail.
My third seat in Commercial Property, where I dealt with transactions involving both leasehold and freehold properties. I assisted other members of the team with larger commercial developments, whilst also running a few smaller files of my own.
My final seat was in the Commercial Litigation team where I assisted the team in dealing with contract disputes, claims for possession and commercial property rent arrears
From the start I have found BPE to be full of friendly, approachable people with an equally friendly environment. There is a key focus on client service and really getting to know your client, which is great to see as a trainee.
