What can Kate do for you?
Kate is a trainee solicitor in her second year at Mills & Reeve. So far she has worked in a number of departments including Regulatory, Public and Commercial Disputes, Projects, Construction and is currently working with the Real Estate team. She works together with a range of colleagues to provide advice, draft documents and help clients to achieve their objectives.
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 Projects team ensured that 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 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.”
