I am currently in my third seat in the employment and pensions team.
I began my training at Anthony Collins Solicitors in September 2019, working with the local government team until March 2020. During this time, I gained experience with planning and highways agreements and procurement processes, with an emphasis on social value. I then worked with the property team until January 2021, where I predominantly worked with third sector organisations. In this seat, I gained experience with commercial leases, residential conveyancing, and preparing and submitting various applications to HM Land Registry, including first registrations.
