Emma Parrish To keep up with the demands of our clients we have been recruiting some more exceptional people. We'd like to introduce some of them here. “I am so happy to have recently joined Mayo Wynne Baxter as a Receptionist and Administration Assistant in the Brighton Office. I graduated from the University of Sussex this year with a History Degree and wanted to gain experience in a law firm before starting a Law Conversion course, which is exactly what my new role allows me to do! Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends, travelling to new, exciting places and anything that involves food, both the cooking and eating of it.” Grace Leonard Catalina Panaitescu-Beacroft Ros Edwards “I am originally from west Cork in the south of Ireland and I moved here to Brighton as my sister has been living here for the last ten years. I trained to be a legal secretary at Griffith College in Cork in 2009. “I lived and studied in Bucharest until 2005, when I was awarded a scholarship by the Ratiu Charitable Foundation to study Arts Administration and Cultural Policy at Goldsmiths, University of London. “Hello, I am working as a legal assistant in the international property department while also studying for my LPC at Guildford at the weekends.  I am hoping to start an ILEX course from the Institute of Legal Executives next year. My hobbies include rock ‘n’ roll, travelling, photography and wine. I have recently finished working in Saudi Arabia. I arrived in the UK and began working at a different law firm before starting at Mayo Wynne Baxter. I am part of the clinical negligence team. In my spare time, I am starting to go to yoga and to the gym.” I worked as a primary school teacher, a broadcaster and project manager at the Romanian Embassy in London where I delivered over 100 diplomatic events.  Throughout my journey I discovered that law plays a key part in people’s lives which is why I am keen to develop a solid legal career. When time allows, I likes to see a good play or listen to simple and soulful ballads coming from different parts of the world.” I lived in Spain for 11 years where I worked as a conveyancing paralegal where you might have seen me riding around on a 600cc motorbike. I enjoy playing squash, running, cycling and am looking forward to joining in with some of the firm sports events.” 7
