Pritha Bala is a Trainee Solicitor in the Employers Liability department at Express Solicitors, having initially joined the firms New Client Team in March 2017.
When asked what she likes best about her role, Pritha commented “I think that the best part of my job is having the ability to help people, as cliché as that may sound. I feel truly delighted once I have taken instructions from a client, considered the accident in which they have been involved and I have managed to secure the best settlement for them at the end of their claim.”
“Having started with the firm in March 2017 in the New Client Team, I progressed onto becoming a Litigation Assistant within the Employers’ Liability department under the supervision of William O’Brien and Eleanor Turton, two exceptional solicitors. Their valuable experience and insight have enabled me to understand what is required to bring a successful Employers’ Liability claim. As such, I currently handle my own Employers’ Liability cases to a requisite standard.“
“I pride myself in providing clients with an understandable approach to their claims. I achieve this with my personalised approach to each client and believe that this puts clients at ease and manages their expectations from the outset of the claim. I always aim to be approachable and accessible to each and every client.”
Pritha attended Northumbria University where she studied and completed her LLB, LLM and LPC. In her last year of university Pritha undertook a module in which she managed her own caseload, dealing with civil matters ranging for Wills & Probate to Property Law which she undertook on a pro bono basis which meant this service was available to everyone.
