Trainee Solicitor

Jessica Whittick

“I’m enthusiastic about solving legal problems and I hope that my work at Tozers will help to empower our clients and give them the confidence to understand and use the law.”

Member of

Department

Jessica joined Tozers in March 2021 as a Trainee Solicitor, her first seat with our Affordable Housing team. She represents public sector landlords with a focus on the Housing Advisory Service and Property Litigation alongside supporting Sarah Schooling and Jenny Lloyd. In her current role she is working with a supportive team who place a lot of focus on training and development. She is scheduled to complete her training contract and qualify in March 2023.

As a trainee solicitor she enjoys having the opportunity to work in a diverse range of departments across the firm. She particularly enjoys contact with clients and taking the time to understand their needs to ensure that the best results are achieved for them.

She has a background in investigations, having worked as an intellectual property analyst for a trademark research and brand protection firm. Prior to joining Tozers in March 2021 Jessica worked for an international estate agent for 18 months in both residential lettings and residential sales.

In 2017 she obtained an LLB (European) dual qualification in English and German Law, from the University of Exeter which meant spending a year at the University of Saarlandes. She gained an LLM Masters Degree from the University of Exeter in 2018 with a particular focus in Maritime and Commercial Law, finally completing a Legal Practice Course at Bournemouth University in 2020.

Jessica is a supporter of Exeter Chiefs and enjoys her visits to see them play at Sandy Park. She has a keen interest in languages, specifically French and German, also being a National Representative for Devon and Somerset Junior Lawyers Division.
