Charlotte qualified as a solicitor in May 2019 after achieving a first class law degree, a distinction in the LPC and working as both a Paralegal and Trainee Solicitor at the firm.
As a Paralegal, Charlotte worked alongside all Commercial fee earners to assist them with a wide range of property related matters, as well as running some of her own files under supervision. As a Trainee, Charlotte expanded upon her experience in the Commercial Department in her first seat, before undertaking her second seat in the Private Client department where she had exposure to a range of matters including drafting Wills, assisting with the administration of estates and the provision of inheritance tax advice. Charlotte was particularly able to overlap her property and agricultural experience in dealing with private client matters and is continuing to build on this with the work she now takes on as a solicitor.
Currently, and throughout her time at Gepps, Charlotte has been involved in a number of large transactions offering support in investigating title, preparing legal summaries of complex legal documents for clients and dealing with enquiries. As a solicitor, Charlotte is now building her own caseload of smaller property matters, including those relating to agriculture, and continues to provide valuable assistance to other fee earners.
Charlotte has recently been involved in some quite niche work, such as surrendering and re-granting agricultural tenancies and disentailing settled land to enable an option to be granted.
Charlotte has a reassuring and professional calmness when dealing with clients. Her attention to detail and organised manner has made Charlotte a valued asset to the firm.
