“A rising star” at south west law firm Coodes has become a fully-qualified solicitor.
Kirsty McAuley, who is based at the firm’s Truro office, has made her mark working in commercial law by carving a specialism for working with schools converting to academy status.
She was also named Junior Lawyer of the Year award earlier this year by the Cornwall Law Society.
Having studied a law degree and post-graduate diploma, McAuley has spent two years gaining experience at Coodes, specialising in intellectual property, company and commercial law.
She said: “It has been fantastic qualifying with Coodes – it’s a forward-thinking firm where I’ve been given lots of responsibility and client contact to gain valuable experience, especially on special projects like the academies.”
Peter Lamble, partner at Coodes Solicitors, said: “Kirsty is a rising star in our firm and we’re very proud to have been able to support her through the training process to become a fully qualified solicitor. We wish her every success in her continuing career.”
