We are delighted to confirm that Yaasameen Akhter has become the latest of our trainees to qualify as a solicitor.
Yaasameen studied for her LLB in Commercial Law at the University of Westminster and completed her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. She initially joined Bowling & Co in 2015 on a work placement and within a few weeks was offered a Paralegal role with the Family team. Yaasameen continued with the Family team when she began her training contract in 2020. She moved to our Commercial Property team during the trainee programme, and this is where she will now resume a permanent post as a qualified solicitor. Yaasameen joins Sebastian Jakubowski who also qualified in the last month.
Yaasameen said: “I have had a great experience as a trainee. Whilst in the family department I was able to take part in advocacy work, I attended legal surgeries which involved providing initial advice to victims of domestic violence whilst informing them of our services. Whilst working with our busy commercial team, I have learned a great deal, have been fortunate to assist with many successful transactions, and developed my expertise, knowledge, and experience in a short period of time. I am looking forward to the next part of my journey.”
Welcoming her permanently to their team, Property Partner Tony Chauhan said, “We are thrilled for Yaasameen on her qualification and to see that all her hard work and commitment has paid off. She has already been a valued member of our team over the last few months, and we very much look forward to working with her in our busy commercial property department, as she continues to use and develop her skills.”
Our trainee programme has produced outstanding talent over the years. Our trainees benefit from a structured, hands-on experience, led by legal experts and mentors with the established backing of a firm that has been servicing clients for over sixty-five years.
Everybody at Bowling & Co would like to congratulate Yaasameen on her qualification.
