Palmers is celebrating after one of its trainees qualified as a solicitor.
Chloe Bunn, who works within the commercial law department, first joined Palmers as a trainee in 2010. She specialises in intellectual property law and acts for a variety of clients on a wide range of matters, including contracts, copyright, information law, brand protection and arts and media issues such as screenplay writers’ agreements.
Having graduated from the University of Kent with a first class honours law degree, as well as a Kent Law School prize for her achievements in her studies, Chloe went on to study the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, in London, where she was awarded a distinction.
While studying at the College of Law, Chloe began working full-time as a paralegal and later as a senior paralegal for a London-based law firm. She also volunteered at a local service providing free legal advice to those otherwise unable to afford it.
Chloe currently volunteers as a mentor for undergraduates at Anglia Ruskin University.
Palmers partner BJ Chong, who heads the firm’s commercial law department, said: “We place a great deal of emphasis on staff training and development at Palmers, so I am delighted that Chloe has now qualified. On behalf of everyone at the firm, I would like to congratulate her on her success.
“Since joining us as a trainee, she has shown great determination and I look forward to seeing her continue to build on her strengths and progress her career with Palmers.”
