BPE has a fantastic culture which immerses employees into their client work. It has been the perfect place for me to grow and hone my skills, leading to qualification.
I am a solicitor in the Employment team, following the completion of my training contract at the firm in February 2020. I provide assistance in a number of areas, both contentious and non-contentious, from assisting companies with TUPE transactions to preparing for claims in a Tribunal. I also assist individuals with grievances and settlement agreements.
I have been with BPE since July 2017 when I joined the firm as a Paralegal within the Commercial Property team. There, I assisted a partner with work for a number of high profile clients by drafting documents and dealing with post-completion matters. I started my training contract within the Employment Team and worked with the team for a year. During this time I worked on a vast array of matters, from redundancies to TUPE transactions, and also preparation for Employment Tribunals. This was followed by 6 months in the Corporate team which has given me a better understanding of the commercial needs of our clients and allows me to assist with corporate support during transactions.
