Emma James

Support Team – Trainee Solicitor

“Having completed law school back in 2010, Emma had given up on her dream of being a solicitor. Earlier this year, whilst on maternity leave, Emma was brave enough to apply for her first job in the legal profession. It only took a few months to impress us sufficiently to justify the offer of a training contract. Emma is a rising star. She is conscientious, thorough and determined.”

Helen Moore, Managing Director


The support team is a critical part of the business’ success and they are highly commended for their work.

The support team is made up of front of house services, legal assistants, paralegals and trainee solicitors. The support team works in a collaborative way to ensure an impressive concierge service is available to our clients.  Nothing is too much trouble for our support team.
