Joy Heron

Legal Secretary

Job Role at EMG

I joined EMG Solicitors in April 2022 as a Legal Secretary in the Commercial Property team providing secretarial support to the department as required. I work closely with team members on varying caseloads including sales and acquisitions, development sites and property, commercial leases, acting for lenders and borrowers and some complex and high value finance transactions.


I have 22 years of experience working in law firms. I started as an junior secretary on Gosforth High Street providing secretarial support to a busy family department. I then moved to a larger firm in Newcastle City Centre for several years building my knowledge of property law, working predominately on plot sales/purchases for a large house builder. Since then I have worked for several of the larger law firms in Newcastle City Centre, working in busy corporate finance & banking and commercial property departments before joining EMG Solicitors.
