Corbett Le Quesne has appointed its first ever former Trident student to its team.
Katie Andrade originally came to the law firm as a student in 2018. She attended Grainville school, going on to study Health and Social Care at Highlands College.
She has been appointed as an Administrative Assistant but hopes to become a paralegal in time.
“We go out of our way to support students and in particular the Trident Scheme. Katie was always proactive and friendly and when we needed a new receptionist we thought of her,” founding Partner Advocate Nicholas Le Quesne commented.
He continued: “Katie has fitted in so well we don’t know what we would do without her. Katie speaks fluent Portuguese and has been invaluable in assisting some of our Portuguese clients. We are expanding the office soon and Katie joining is an important part of our expansion. She is confident and charming and she is already proving popular with clients. It is important to feel comfortable when attending your lawyer’s office and she provides a welcome face and is highly competent in assisting people as required.”
Ms Andrade added: “I have only been here a short time but I have learned so much already. Being able to help people has been really rewarding and speaking Portuguese has meant I have been very involved with some cases.
“It is also an interesting time to have joined, with Covid restrictions ending, the office expanding and I am helping arrange two international family law conferences with some very prestigious lawyers and judges attending. I am really enjoying being here and aspire to be an advocate like [founding Partner Advocate Barbara Corbett] and Nick one day.”
