Grace Hughes, Trainee Solicitor

Name: Grace Hughes, Trainee Solicitor

Educational Background: M Law (Exempting) incorporating the LPC at Northumbria University

Training Contract Seat: Corporate

What made you apply to Mincoffs?

Having worked at Mincoffs in the summers whilst at university, I got an insight into the wide client base and the high quality of work carried out by the firm which provides a great opportunity to learn and train.

I have only recently commenced my training contract, but from the very beginning I have been able to be involved in client transactions which has allowed me to obtain great experience in how a transaction progresses.

What advice would you give to future trainees?

My advice to future trainees would be don’t be afraid to make mistakes!  It is all part of the learning process, so don’t take it to heart if you make a mistake.

Bri Cheng - Corporate Paralegal, Mincoffs Solicitors

Name: Bri Cheng, Trainee Solicitor

Educational Background: LLB with PgDip in Law with Northumbria University and the LPC with The University of Law

Training Contract Seat: Commercial

What made you apply to Mincoffs?

Having been a corporate team paralegal immediately prior to my traineeship at Mincoffs, it was the natural choice for me to apply here. The firm’s professionalism and attention to detail in their work really sets them apart from other firms, aligning with my own core values of diligence and a client-first mentality.

What advice would you give to future trainees?

Work hard, even when you think no one is watching. As a trainee, you’re expected to learn and work at the same time, the only way you’ll be good at both is to work hard – there cannot, and should not, be any compromise.
