 Paralegal 

I have always had a huge interest in law and commercial law was always the going to be the path for me. I started off completing LLB Law with French Law and Language (First Class) at the University of Hull / Universite Pierre-Mendes France in 2013 before going to the University of Leeds to leave with LLM International Banking & Finance Law (Distinction) in 2015. I then went on to BPP Law School Leeds to take the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC, Very Competent) for 2 years before being called to the Bar on 11 October 2018 at The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn.

I started my practical experience in 2012 and worked as a new claims handler and litigation executive before joining Legal Studio in 2017, specialising in defending and bringing claims to Court for large organisations and SME’s. I work on contractual disputes; writing and developing contracts, reacting to contractual issues, advising on non-performance and breach of contract.

I was attracted to Legal Studio because I knew I would have the opportunity to work in different commercial areas and for me, this was so important. Everyone here is treated as equal, you can tell everyone wants to be at work and there’s no obvious hierarchy which is refreshing. Within the office we all work on the same open plan floor, so ideas are exchanged and collaboration takes place very organically in amongst some great team socialising.

My spare time is spent with family and my gorgeous Jack Russell cross, Freddie. I am also a qualified Zumba fitness instructor and I teach a weekly class which keeps me motivated and fit.

2017 has ended and a new year is upon us. However, you’re still stuck in the same legal job and don’t know what to do next.
 
Maybe you’re a solicitor who has been working at the same firm, without progression or recognition.
 
Maybe you’re bored of the targets set by your employer.
 
Maybe you’re looking for a flexible style of working, on your terms, not someone else’s.
 
Don’t let 2018 be as monotonous as 2017. Join Legal Studio as a self-employed solicitor.
 
 
What do you mean?
 
Well, Legal Studio is a team of self-employed consultants. Each individual has complete control over their work whilst still being able to surround themselves with the expertise and camaraderie of the wider firm. We offer truly flexible working and a far more personal service than any other firm and you are able to openly discuss costs with clients, free from the constraints of huge overheads.
 
We strip away the usual stress of a law firm and provide you with the support and guidance that you require. We actively encourage you to ensure that you give your clients the personal service they want, without the unnecessary targets. 
 
This can allow you to build a stronger relationship with your clients and get out what you put in.
 
But this sounds too good to be true…
 
And we agree. However, it isn’t. This new business model is becoming far more popular in today’s shifting legal sphere and you should join it. The opportunity is real, and Legal Studio can help you realise it.
 
We welcome applicants to join our team at any stage in the year.
 
Don’t let 2018 run away and waste another year in a job that you don’t like.
 
Please see our Careers page for more information about the role and the application process.
 
Still don’t believe us? Then why not get in touch with any of our team for a confidential discussion on turning this year into your year.
