I joined Smith Partnership in November 2017 as a Trainee Solicitor. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with an LLB degree in Law and completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of the West of England.
As a trainee, I move around different departments within the firm. My current training seat is in the Private Client Department, where I deal with and assist in all aspects of estate and trust administration, and Court of Protection Applications for appointment of Deputies. I also advise on lifetime estate planning, including Inheritance Tax mitigation; and assist clients in the preparation of Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Prior to joining the firm, I worked for HMCTS and enjoyed a successful career in translation.
