I know that BPE will be the perfect place for me to grow and hone my skills in order to become a solicitor
My journey with BPE started in July 2017 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.
In April 2018, I started my training contract within the Employment Team. I was in this team for a year and 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 during which time I predominantly assisted a senior associate with transactions involving PLCs floating on the AIM market.
As of October 2019, I am in my final seat which will be split between the Litigation and Employment teams before I qualify into the Employment team in April 2020. During this time, I shall be assisting a Senior Associate with the high calibre work undertaken by the team whilst building upon the skills I have learnt over the last few years.
BPE has a fantastic culture which immerses trainees into their client work, which has made it the perfect place for me to grow and hone my skills in order to become a solicitor. I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside dedicated professionals and the exposure to clients that very few training contracts are able to offer. I look forward to qualifying with BPE shortly.
