Charlotte Burkert

Team Assistant

As a Team Assistant, I assist with the case file management and fee earner scheduling. I enjoy being part of a great team which entails doing a variety of very interesting work.

I graduated from the University of Sunderland where I attained my law degree and Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice. I also won the university’s mooting competition.

Whilst at university, I worked as a legal assistant in criminal and prison law. Although I enjoyed this area of law, I wanted to work in the commercial and corporate sector after taking this module at university.

Birkett Long has an excellent reputation. The firm is very dedicated to its clients and giving back to the community, which is why I applied to work in the business team.

Previously, I have volunteered for the Witness Service at local magistrate’s court in Sunderland. This entailed supporting witnesses at trial and advising them on the court procedure.

I am currently studying the Legal Practice Course and Masters in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Law in London.

In my spare time, I enjoy competing with my horse at local dressage competitions, training at the gym and spending time with friends.
