Charlotte completed her law degree incorporating the LPC at Northumbria University. She joined the firm in 2015 as a paralegal in the debt recovery team, this gave Charlotte a really good opportunity to get to know the culture of the firm and also broaden her skills and commercial awareness. Charlotte then secured a training contract at the firm and this began in March 2018. With strong litigation skills, she spent her first seat in the real estate dispute resolution team dealing with a wide variety of both residential and commercial property disputes. She is looking forward to her second seat in the real estate team where she will get involved in a wide range of transactional work.
Muckle had always stood out to Charlotte as a commercial firm with a difference, the culture is different to any firm she has worked in in the past, she can also relate to the firm as, like her it has strong North Eastern links with just a single office based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Another major factor that drew Charlotte to Muckle was their charity work and fantastic work in corporate social responsibility, Charlotte enjoys giving back to her community and is a trustee at North East charity Bright Red, helping to support those suffering from blood cancer, she is also interested in helping other young people become the best that they can be and is a mentor with the Social Mobility Fund.
Whilst being with the firm Charlotte has been given many opportunities to gain experience both professionally and personally, including taking part in community days at Scotswood Community Garden, planning, budgeting and executing a successful trainee quiz for everyone within the firm and attempting to get more healthy by taking part in Muckle’s couch to 5k running group.
