Phoebe Trott

Trainee Solicitor

I am a Trainee Solicitor in my first seat in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team.

I chose to pursue a career in law as I enjoy helping people, as well as learning and working on a variety of different cases. Being a trainee at Birkett Long will enable me to experience different areas of law during each different seat.

I studied my law degree at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and then completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in London. Whilst at university, I undertook extra responsibilities alongside my degree, such as being a Law School Buddy and representing the law school student voice.

In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym and swimming, and I am a keen skier due to having had the opportunity to ski from the age of 4. I also have a passion for travelling to many different countries to explore new cultures.

Our team's friendly approach ensures that clients are put at ease and made aware that they will be looked after. All members of the team are happy to discuss a client’s needs over the telephone for an initial 15 minutes at no cost. Once it is established what a client needs, fixed fees are almost always available to provide certainty to our clients.
