Sophie Maehle

Legal Secretary

Job Role at EMG

I am a Legal Secretary in the Wills, Trusts, and Probate department. I assist the Durham team with administrative, case management, and client contact, as well as various other tasks. I am the first point of contact for any new enquiries.


I obtained my LLB and LPC/LLM, graduating in 2020. I enjoyed the tax planning aspects during my private client elective at University, so I went on to work in a top 10 accountancy firm, specialising in tax (global mobility, employment, and tax dispute resolution). I then worked for a global law firm in their fraud team at their Manchester office, before returning to Durham, which is when I joined the WTP team at EMG.

What do you like about working at EMG?

The friendly culture here. I am also interested in the type of work the team does and I learn about new aspects of the law regularly.

Outside of EMG?

I spend a lot of time with my dog, Arch, and my mini lop bunny, Lilly. I play tennis at least twice a week and I practice Hatha yoga weekly too.
