What can Kate do for you?
Kate is a trainee solicitor in her second year at Mills & Reeve and will be qualifying into the Construction team in September 2019. Within the construction team, she advises on both contentious and transactional matters and works closely with client teams to provide advice, draft documents and progress projects.
Supporting your ambitions
One of Kate’s highlights involved assisting a large Government client with producing a standard form commercial contract, which can be adapted depending on the individual project. Kate ensured that updates and amendments met the client’s aims and were consistent across the client’s commercial contracts. The legal team made sure the contracts went out to tender on time and kept the whole client team regularly updated with progress. This established a collegiate approach between Mills & Reeve and the client’s technical and legal teams.
What do others say?
Kate has recently produced a training manual on public procurement for internal use by a Projects and Construction client. This document followed a training session and included client-focused advice based on scenarios raised by the client, who said - “Thank you for pulling this together it is an excellent reference document and we are very pleased with the output.”
