Kate Birkett

Paralegal - Probate Assistant

Job Role

I joined EMG in January 2021 as a Legal Secretary working in Wills, Trusts and Probate.


I have over 16 years’ experience in the legal sector, having spent 15 years at another north east firm working in their Healthcare Department. Wills, Trusts and Probate is all brand new to me and I am really enjoying learning about this side of law.

What Do you like about EMG?

I would have to say the people. Everybody has been so welcoming, friendly and approachable and really made me feel like part of the team from day one, no mean feat when I started the day before lockdown 3.0 and most people are working from home!

Outside EMG

I love music and love going to gigs and music festivals. I also love travelling and exploring new places. I live with my fiancé and our puppy called Hank who is very cheeky and takes up most of our free time!
