SCE Solicitors expansion shows no sign of slowing down following the opening of a brand new office in Horsforth last month and now the appointment of a new trainee solicitor, Emma Roberts.
Emma joined SCE in December 2017 as a Paralegal providing Employment and HR support. Emma advises both employers and employees from a broad range of sections on various employment law issues, including advising on disciplinary and grievances, termination of employment, and responding to internal employment disputes and tribunal claims.
She also assists Director and Head of Employment, Samira Cakali, in the running of the firm’s myHR service where she supports businesses in the day-to-day management of their staff.
Emma studied Bachelor of Laws at the Open University whilst working as a Litigation Assistant at a law firm in Leeds. She then went on to complete a Diploma in Legal Practice and Master of Laws at the University of Law in Leeds.
Speaking about her appointment, Emma said “I am very excited to be a part of the SCE team as the firm continues to grow and strengthen its legal offering to clients across Yorkshire. I feel very fortunate to be training at a firm that truly invests in its people.”
Samira said “Emma, has been an exceptional paralegal, she has quickly become an invaluable member of our small team and I am extremely pleased we have been able to offer her a training contract. She is methodical, detailed and has excellent client care, all the skills which I believe will equip her to become an excellent solicitor.”
Emma will now spend the first six months training in the Employment Law Department in Horsforth before moving on to another two departments over the next 18 months, leading to her qualification as a Solicitor in March 2020.
