The Legal 500 – The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Jasmin Patel

Associate Solicitor

Purchasing or selling a property can be stressful for clients and I think it is important to be personable and approachable. I am hardworking, enthusiastic and able to think practically to keep the transaction moving. I respond to clients in a timely manner and believe in giving the best service I can. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01245 453861.

Property transactions are often a large investment and it can be a daunting experience. I love that I am able to assist with these matters and put a smile on my clients’ faces once the transaction is completed. I enjoy that you are constantly learning new things and coming across problems that can be quiet challenging to resolve. I enjoy having client contact and meting a variety of people.

In my previous role, I gained experience in new build work and Help to Buy transactions. As a solicitor, I get to see a sale, purchase, re-mortgage, transfer of equity (along with other related matters) from the beginning of the transaction to the end.

Working at Birkett Long is enjoyable. There is a great atmosphere and support team. The firm also takes the time to progress your carer and develop your skills.

I enjoy travelling (I was able to travel to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam in 2016), cooking and exercising.
