Rebecca started working at Samuels Solicitors in November 2016 as an Office Assistant and Receptionist, after leaving college with excellent exam results and a great enthusiasm to work in the legal industry.
She developed her career at Samuels by assisting our property litigator and Partner, Mark Cummings, as well as offering a helping hand to other fee earners and colleagues when necessary. Rebecca enjoyed working with Mark on his challenging property litigation matters, and his litigation clients very much appreciated Rebecca's hard work and dedication to their cases.
For the past two years, Rebecca has been predominantly working within our busy conveyancing department, assisting the fee earners with every aspect of the conveyancing process, for which her previous experience in property litigation is invaluable. Rebecca has worked through the challenging stamp duty holiday where there was a soar in property transactions.
Whilst working with Solicitor Elle Brooks, Rebecca also developed a proficient understanding of commercial property transactions, often working on complex leases and asset purchase agreements.
Rebecca has recently achieved a 2:1 Bachelor of Law (Honours) Degree with the Open University at the same time as working full time. We are pleased to have awarded Rebecca with a training contract with Samuels, which she is completing alongside the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Bristol.
Rebecca is eager and working hard to become a fully qualified lawyer in the near future.
In her spare time Rebecca enjoys socialising with friends and squeezing as many sunny holidays into a year as possible!
