Helen Cohen

Solicitor

I am a Private Client Solicitor at BakerLaw, with over 10 years' legal experience.

Areas of Work

My areas of expertise are:

  • Wills
  • Administration of estates (probate and intestacy)
  • Powers of Attorney & Court of Protection work
  • Trusts

Qualifications and Accreditations

I obtained my degree in law whilst working as a lawyer full-time, and graduated in Summer 2020 with First Class Honours. Following my law degree, I completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Legal Practice (LPC), passing with Distinction and then passed the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) in the First Quintile (top 20%) of candidates across the country. After seven years of pre-qualification experience as a Private Client fee earner and adviser, I qualified as a Solicitor in March 2023.

My Specialism

I specialise in Wills, Powers of Attorney, Estate Administration and Trust matters and enjoy assisting my clients with the legal complications of personal matters, when they are going through a difficult time in their life.

I am experienced in and enthusiastic about complex matters, and enjoy problem solving. I will always look to find a solution to any issue and offer my clients options where available to work towards a result that suits them. I know that legal jargon and concepts can be difficult to digest, and so take care to explain matters to my clients in a way that is clear and understandable for them.

My Experience

I started my career in law in 2012, working as a legal secretary in a Private Client department for a small high street firm. After some time working in the Private Client team, I decided to begin my journey to qualification as a solicitor.

I then went on to become a Private Client fee earner and have been working directly with clients and managing my own matters since 2016. I moved to a large Surrey based firm in January 2019, where I continued to gain excellent experience in all areas of Private Client law.

I joined BakerLaw as a Private Client Executive in March 2022, and qualified as a Solicitor in March 2023.
