Kavita joined Glaisyers ETL as a Solicitor back in April. Looking back on her first few weeks, she has shared an insight into what it has been like to settle in at the firm.
I started working at Glaisyers ETL at the end of April 2023, and joined the Real Estate team as a Solicitor. My first week at Glaisyers ETL consisted of various meetings and introductions with the partners and colleagues, getting to know the team. At the same time, I received training on the practice management system, accounts, and time recording. At the firm there is a buddy system, so on my second day I met up with my buddy for lunch. This allowed me to ask any questions I had, and I got to know a bit more about the firm in a less professional environment, which made me feel more comfortable and at ease. On my third day, I got to attend a marketing meeting with ETL Marketing which was very informative on networking events my colleagues participate in and also gave me the opportunity to meet other members of the firm and understand the importance of marketing.
I will be working predominantly in commercial property and real estate finance. My workload is quite varied which means that I am able to get involved in a variety of different transactions and other aspects of commercial property; in turn obtaining exposure to different areas. This will allow me to develop and enhance my skills and expertise. Over the next couple of weeks, I got involved in assisting my colleagues on matters and taking on my own caseload. I drafted documents for land registry, landlord and tenant leases and agreements, acting on office buy back transactions, reviewing real estate finance documents, and drafting documents for lenders. I have also conducted legal research, had various training sessions with Partners and attended client meetings.
The Real Estate team are very friendly and helpful and have helped me settle in and I look forward to working within the firm.
