Martha Craven
Trainee Solicitor

I am a trainee solicitor currently working in the Construction team, having completed earlier seats in the Employment and Corporate and Commercial teams.  I was seconded to Clarkslegal LLP as a paralegal in March 2017 and subsequently began my training contract with the firm in September 2017. I am due to qualify as a solicitor in April 2019.

During my time with Corporate and Commercial, I assisted with various corporate transactions and business sales. This included reviewing, drafting and negotiating a full range of corporate documents, such as sale and purchase agreements, as well as board minutes, resolutions and other ancillary documentation. I also advised clients on various matters relating to data protection, including drafting privacy policies and amending services agreements.

Working with the Employment Team, I assisted with various large scale projects. This included co-ordinating a team on a large scale TUPE exercise involving approximately 800 in scope employees, on behalf of a FTSE 100 listed company. I also I worked with an international client to develop a risk register for their HR team. This involved giving commercially focussed employment law advice relating to multiple jurisdictions. Finally, I was also responsible for assisting with various contentious tribunal claims, including drafting grounds of resistance and witness statements.
