Nathan MaddisonTrainee Solicitor

Job Role at EMG

I joined EMG in April 2021 as a Paralegal in the Commercial Property department before becoming a Trainee Solicitor in September 2021. My day-to-day work includes: preparing documents; researching different areas of law; responding to client queries; and meeting with clients in the office

Experience

In 2020 I completed the MLaw (Exempting) course at Northumbria University, graduating with an overall mark of 96%. As a result, I was awarded The Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellor Award and The Oxford University Press Prize for the Best Undergraduate Performance in Law.

Prior to joining EMG, I spent seven years working with a rapidly growing retail company. In this role I helped to open a number of new stores, became a supervisor and took part in the training of new colleagues.

What do you like about working at EMG?

Everyone at the firm is extremely friendly, very approachable and always happy to lend a hand. One of the things I love about my role is the variety; no two days are ever the same!

Outside of EMG

In my spare time I enjoy going for long, often muddy, walks with my fiancée and our crazy cocker spaniel, Hallie. When I’m not out and about I can often be found reading any book I can get my hands on. I have a passion for genealogy and have pieced together an extensive family tree over the years.

From an early age I have had a fascination with Victorian coal mines and the social history attached to them. Throughout my time at university I was able to use this interest as a theme for a number of pieces of work; most notably my dissertation. For this piece of work I researched the Government Inspectors of Mines and Collieries, focusing on the various laws that underpinned the role.
