Maisie joined Birketts in October 2018 after graduating from Newcastle University, where she studied Law. Her first role at the firm was in the Real Estate Finance Team, where she managed a large caseload of secured lending transactions for a UK banking group. While in this team, Maisie secured a Training Contract and consequently left to undertake her LPC with Masters (LPC LLM) at BPP University in London.
Maisie obtained a distinction in the LPC LLM and completed electives in Corporate Finance, Private Acquisitions and Advanced Commercial Property. On her return to Birketts, Maisie assisted the Real Estate Investment Team with high-value financing transactions and asset management tasks before formally commencing her Training Contract.
Maisie’s first training seat was in the Corporate Team in Norwich, where she assisted on a range of corporate transactions including share acquisitions and disposals, group restructurings, buy-outs and an IPO. Maisie is currently in her second training seat which is Banking and Finance.
Outside of work, Maisie likes to keep active by running and playing netball. She recently completed the Norwich Half Marathon and now has her sights set on a full marathon. Maisie enjoys the vibrant art and culture scene in Norwich, as well as the excellent offering of independent restaurants.
During her time at BPP, Maisie volunteered as a Diversity and Inclusion Ambassador. In this role, she took part in various initiatives (including hosting a podcast and book club) to promote equality and tackle discrimination in the legal profession.
