Emily Thorp

Trainee Solicitor

I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Department. 

My areas of work

I started my Training Contract in February 2018 and am currently undertaking my first seat in the Dispute Resolution Team.

My previous experience

I previously worked as a paralegal in a Property Dispute Resolution team in a Gloucester based firm, where I gained experience dealing with Boundary Disputes, Possession of Property, Trespass, Rent and Service Charge Arrears, Dilapidations, Forfeiture, Right of Way Disputes and Land Compensation Act Claims.

I additionally spent 6 months working in the Residential Property department, at Bakerlaw, assisting Lalini De Silva prior to commencing my Training Contract. 

My interest and hobbies

In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym regularly, in order to keep fit - I particularly love attending Body Combat and Yoga Classes. These also hopefully help to counteract the amount of time I spend eating cake and drinking cocktails.

I also enjoy reading, walks in the countryside, attending the theatre and exploring new places.

Qualifications and Accreditations

I completed my undergraduate Law degree at Aberystwyth  University, before going on to complete the Legal Practice Course with Masters in Legal Practice at the University of Law, London Moorgate.
