Francesca is an associate. She joined Stewarts as a paralegal in the Divorce and Family department in February 2014 after studying law at the University of Kent. She became a trainee in 2016 and qualified in 2018.
Francesca was featured in an article in The Times ‘Jump from paralegal to partner’ regarding her experience moving from paralegal to trainee solicitor, she says:
“I was entrusted with a lot of legal, chargeable work, making the transition to a trainee seamless. My time as a paralegal meant that I already knew how to use the firm’s systems and software and was aware of the high expectations of me.
“Obviously the route I went through has taken me longer than others, but I feel that the experiences and skills I developed as a paralegal are going to make me a better, more skilled and more confident trainee. In turn this will enable a smooth transition to a newly qualified solicitor.”
