The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Cara O'Donoghue

Trainee Solicitor

I am in the final year of my training contract, currently in the Business team in Colchester.

I love how my training contract has allowed me to explore different practice areas. In doing so, I have been able to seek out countless opportunities which have assisted in the development of my confidence and practical skills.

During my training contract, I have spent time in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team and the Dispute Resolution team.

I completed my undergraduate law degree at Plymouth University. I then joined the Commercial Real Estate team at Birkett Long as a paralegal in July 2015. During my time as a paralegal, I concluded the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in London.

In my spare time, I enjoy diving (preferably in hotter climates), playing golf, and walking. I also thoroughly enjoy taking part in charitable events such as the Nuclear Mud Race for St Luke’s Hospice and Rob’s Walk for the Rob George Foundation.
