My role

I am currently a first-year trainee solicitor sitting in the construction department. I work closely with both our non-contentious and contentious solicitors on a variety of matters for our clients ranging from drafting JCT and NEC contracts to large-value litigation relating to poor workmanship and non-compliance with building and fire safety regulations.

My previous seat was in commercial property, where I drafted numerous commercial property contracts and managed Right to Buy matters for our housing and social business clients.

My experience

I obtained my undergraduate degree in BA English Studies at the University of Nottingham before completing the GDL at Birmingham City University and the LPC at the University of Law. Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors in August 2019, I had experience working in education and pro bono volunteering for litigants-in-person.

In addition to my role as a trainee solicitor, I am the Education Officer for the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors’ Society (an off-shoot of the Birmingham Law Society). My role involves delivering webinars and networking sessions at local universities to integrate current and future trainees and law students in the Birmingham legal community. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, I chaired a webinar for trainee solicitors on the topic of training and qualifying in the Covid-era. I also founded the BTSS Podcast, which will cover various topics of relevance to trainee solicitors.
