Trainee Solicitor

Mignonette is a Trainee Solicitor in the Commercial Department at Martin Tolhurst Solicitors, and has been based in the Gravesend office since September 2017 . She assists the solicitors in the commercial department in relation to commercial property and business law matters.

She prepares documents, liaises with clients, conducts and interprets searches and answers enquiries. Mignonette is diligent, approachable and highly motivated.

Since being at the firm she has also dealt with corporate acquisitions, share sales, review of commercial agreements, landlord and tenant matters such as drafting commercial leases, licences and deeds and registering land,

Recently Mignonette has been dealing with corporate acquisitions across a variety of different industries which she has found to be very exciting.

What Mignonette says:

After receiving a 2.1 in Law from the University of Kent in 2014, I went on to achieve a Distinction on the Legal Practice Course in 2017 at BPP Law School. I studied Corporate Finance, Advanced Commercial Property and Advanced Commercial Litigation, as these electives catered to my enthusiasm for corporate and commercial matters. I joined Martin Tolhurst Solicitors shortly after achieving my results.

During my education, I sufficiently threw myself in at the deep end! I participated in mooting, negotiation and mediation competitions, I also became the social secretary for an extreme sport society, committee member of the Kent Law Clinic, class representative and went on to become the founder and president of a Clay Shooting Society (what’s one more extra curricular activity!).

Prior to joining Martin Tolhurst I had various roles, from working as a legal secretary in intellectual property, to being the Lead Student Ambassador for an equality and diversity organisation. I remain exceptionally passionate about the promotion and increase of equality and diversity in the legal profession.

When I am not working I enjoy countryside walks with my four dogs, horseback riding and of course clay shooting!

If I were not a lawyer, I would be...

I would be a designer of bespoke and eccentric clothing and furnishings!
