Having passed her A Levels and not knowing what career path she wanted to follow, Chloe joined Atkins Thomson on a short term contract in July 2016 to assist with preparation of trial bundles for a complex costs hearing. She proved an invaluable asset to the team, organising and indexing over 200 bundles of papers and liaising with Counsel, solicitors and the Court to prepare for the hearing.
She accepted the position of full-time paralegal in May 2017 and has now successfully obtained a Law Degree after undertaking evening study. She is now studying for the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam alongside continuing her work as a paralegal, with the aim of being qualified in early 2022.
Chloe works with all fee-earners organising files, preparing complex spreadsheets and chronologies and taking notes at meetings, conferences and court hearings. She also works closely with Mark Thomson and James Heath in bringing phone hacking claims against News Group Newspapers and Mirror Group Newspapers. She seems to have found her “niche” in media law and is enjoying developing her skills as an aspiring solicitor.
