Jenna Larcombe, Associate Solicitor – Commercial Property at Mogers Drewett, shares a behind-the-scenes snapshot of her career at Mogers Drewett and challenges the ‘stuffy’ perception so often associated with the legal sector.
I joined Mogers Drewett nearly three years ago. Having grown up in Bath, I knew the firm was really well regarded and did high quality, challenging and interesting work. We’re a diverse team and while we have our roots firmly established in the South West, we have a number of ex- city lawyers that have brought us that vital national perspective too. Since joining the Commercial Property team, I’ve handled a variety of transactions including land sales and acquisitions, Landlord and Tenant matters, development and secured lending work.
I am already a team leader in the Wells office and have a clear pathway set out to help me achieve my career goals. As part of this, I am encouraged to attend both formal and informal events and play my part in the continued development and growth of the firm. Some days, I work in the Bath office where I live or visit colleagues in Sherborne. In reality, we work as one team across all the offices.
No working day is ever the same. We are hard negotiators which means I often put in extra hours and get involved in some big deals – it’s always rewarding when you get those over the line!
I believe Mogers Drewett isn’t like other firms in the region. Behind the door is a modern, flexible firm that puts clients first. Sometimes that means travelling to a client’s office or flexing the nine to five day so that we can achieve the best, most positive outcome. Our clients enjoy working with us because we understand their needs and invest the time in building long term relationships.
Everyone has preconceived ideas of what law firms are like but Mogers Drewett is anything but stuffy! It has provided me with excellent career opportunities and is a really positive and professional place to work.
