Jasmine joined the CEL team in late 2019 as a solicitor. After completing her Law Degree and Legal Practice Course at Liverpool John Moores University, Jasmine went into the legal field initially working in the costs department of a personal injury firm. She dealt with costs matters including drafting bills of costs, managing the budgeting process and preparing claims for detailed assessment. During her time here, she began her training contract and became a qualified solicitor in September 2016. Following this, she moved to another legal firm to advance her civil litigation experience and began working with a substantial caseload of mid to high value constructions disputes, carrying claims from pre-action to trial.
At CEL, Jasmine works as a solicitor in the Japanese knotweed departments; representing clients who have suffered damage to their property as a result of the weed spreading from neighbouring land. She also assists our data breach team, investigating cases where a party has wrongly disclosed or shared client data and working to obtain compensation for relevant breaches.
She is most proud of being able to help people on a daily basis in her role. “Japanese knotweed is not something that a lot of people have heard of and it can be devastating to discover it growing on their land due to the affect is has on the value of the property.”
Jasmine enjoys writing in her spare time, having completed a first draft of a novel and currently working on a screenplay – for fun!
