We are delighted to announce that two new trainee solicitors started their training contracts in February at Waterfront: Chloe Redshaw and Deeva Shah.
Chloe is a graduate from the University of Winchester and completed her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. Chloe joined the business support team at Waterfront in October 2017 and gained experience supporting our core practice areas: Intellectual Property, Technology/ Commercial, Corporate lawyers London and Employment.
Deeva graduated from Keele University before also completing her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law. Prior to joining Waterfront, she worked in a boutique commercial law firm and then joined the in-house legal team at Jellycat, a soft toys company.
The new trainees will be assisting across our four departments. On behalf of all the team at Waterfront and the partners, we would like to extend our warmest welcome and best wishes for their training!
