Maria has joined our team as Office Administrator for all legal services in 2018. She focuses on customer engagement and also providing administrative support to fee-earners.
She comes from a human resources and hospitality background, where she has worked with large teams and their clients, predominantly highly skilled migrant clients, to evaluate each client individually and to follow company procedure in bringing on board those clients.
Maria is here to assist with each team member’s administrative needs and to make sure that fee-earners' time is used wisely for the client. As solicitors/fee-earners, the key to client satisfaction is effective communication and a high standard of work being progressed in a timely manner for the fee that has been paid. As such with the assistance of exceptional administrative assistance, and paralegals, we hope fee-earns will meet the client’s needs more effectively.
