I undertook my Degree in Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London in 2000 and graduated in 2003 with 2:1 class honours. Following graduation I went on to study the Graduate Diploma in Law (formerly the CPE) at BPP Law school in Holborn which I passed having attained a Merit grade. I remained at BPP to study the LPC in which I achieved a Commendation grade.
Following completion of the academic aspect of my professional legal qualification I then undertook a period of 5 years practice as a paralegal in the Litigation sector working for both large and small firms gaining a broad experience in general litigation, corporate and commercial, housing, family, and immigration law. I then completed my 2 year training contract with seats in Immigration, Public Law, and Welfare Benefits and I qualified as a solicitor on 1 July 2011.
I continued post qualification as an Immigration solicitor in my first year up until working for McMillan Williams solicitors on 1 February 2012 where I have been working as a conveyancing solicitor.
During my time at McMillan Williams I have quickly discovered the firm to be very pro-active not only in its approach to the law and its application but also with respect to other aspects of the firm including compliance with Money Laundering obligations as well as SRA requirements.
McMillan Williams stands out on its own in terms of its robust and pro-active approach in dealing with the clients’ aims and objectives, and in particular in my field of conveyancing, setting out the client’s objectives in a purchase or sale transaction, or even in matters relating to Transfers of Equity usually between married couples.
We are always kept abreast of legal developments in every one of our departments through electronic communication as well as many informative training sessions carried out in-house at McMillan Williams.
With the positively vibrant work ethos of the firm coupled with the desire to adopt a pro-active “hands-on approach to transactions this allows every fee earner within the firm to quickly and efficiently develop his own character from the outset as well as to acquire the necessary legal expertise within the chosen field to succeed in practice and to become a key asset and play a key role in the ongoing expansion and development of the firm which is testified by its success in having 13 offices established with continual expansion envisaged at all times!
I have no doubt in recommending McMillan Williams as an employer which encourages enterprise in all its successful endeavours allowing the new joiner to create his/her own unique role in the firm’s rapid and continual expansion in the legal industry and to be at the forefront of the changes and development within the legal sector at large.
