Meet recently qualified Solicitor, James Halpin.
I have completed my Training Contract at SO Legal,qualifying as a Solicitor in November 2018. I work with one of the firm’s directors dealing with commercial property and corporate transactions in the commercial department, as well as leading on Auction Sales & Purchases. After graduating from the University of Sussex in 2013 with an LLB Law degree, I worked for three years in a paralegal role, carrying out residential property conveyancing transactions. Working in a client facing position in the early part of my career was a real benefit and allowed me to gain confidence and experience in a legal environment, and to develop crucial practical skills. During this time, I also studied part-time on the LPC, which I completed in the early part of 2017. Shortly after this I joined SO Legal to begin my training contract. The firm has a modern and practical approach to both business and legal services, including a cloud-based case management system that allows easy access to client’s matters. Embracing this technology means that we can offer clients a professional and efficient service that makes the firm stand out. As a Trainee I was able to take on more responsibilities and build on my experience as a paralegal.
