Emma Jenkins

Associate Solicitor

In the Dispute Resolution team, I deal with matters in a concise and effective manner, focusing on achieving cost effective and swift solutions without the need for litigation wherever possible. My experience ranges from the first investigative steps of exploring the merits of a potential matter to preparing for and arranging representation at trial. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217615.

I have had a diverse case load, meaning that I am well placed to assist in a broad range of matters. I specialise in property and land disputes with further experience in an array of contentious issues including, although not limited to, obtaining ex-parte relief (emergency injunctions), settling contractual disputes and business related disputes.

The variety that litigation has to offer, and the diverse range of clients I have the pleasure of assisting, are the reasons why I enjoy my job. No two days are ever the same. I knew from a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in law. I witnessed several open hearings whilst volunteering as a marshall at Chelmsford Crown Court, and I then undertook my work experience here at Birkett Long whilst studying at university.

I spend the majority of my spare time with friends and family. I am an active swimmer and regularly practice yoga. I also never miss an opportunity to travel or go on holiday and am always planning my next trip.
