Gemma Riley

Finance and COFA Assistant

Job Role at EMG

I am a Finance and COFA Assistant. I work closely with our Head of Finance supporting them with the financial duties to assist in the growth and success of the firm.

I also assist the legal cashiering team where necessary, helping with the various client transactions whilst supporting the cashiers and fee earners.


I graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a Law LLB in 2016. Having decided Law wasn’t for me I started as a Trainee Legal Cashier within another law firm, eventually working towards being a Senior Legal Cashier. Throughout my time working in accounts I decided I wanted to progress into a more financial role which brings me to where I am today. I have also spent time working in retail and in a call centre prior to working in law firms!

What do you like about working at EMG?

Everyone at EMG is so welcoming and kind, always stopping to introduce themselves and speak with me.

Outside of EMG?

In my free time you can usually find me socialising, walking my dog Bear or gaming!
