Experience

I have had paralegal experience within Bates Wells’ Charity and Social Enterprise and Corporate and Commercial Departments. I assisted our Employment Department during my first seat as a trainee solicitor.

I am currently a second seat trainee in the Corporate and Commercial Department. I assist the team with advising on corporate matters, commercial contracts and banking transactions.
