Jessica is a second seat trainee solicitor within the education team. Jessica first joined the firm as an administration assistant in 2018, soon progressing to the role of claims handler within the business and professional risk team and later went on to secure a training contract with the firm beginning March 2022.  

As claims handler, Jessica worked closely with her partner colleagues on the day to day running of pre-action and litigated professional indemnity claims for a key client of the firm. Jessica gained experience in a variety of tasks including supporting witnesses at court, liaising with counsel and experts and preparing court bundles. Jessica also has experience working closely with the regulatory and barrister teams within the firm. 

As a trainee, Jessica’s first seat was with the public law, environment and planning team where she managed her own transactional planning files, worked closely with both junior and senior members of the team on an array of environmental and public law tasks and was considered a valued member of the team. Jessica’s first seat enabled her to work with a variety of departments across the firm, connecting workstreams and building strong relationships with colleagues.   

Jessica is now a second seat trainee within the education team and looks forward to building new relationships across the firm and gaining experience in another area of law.
