Daniella Colton

Trainee Solicitor

Employment

Daniella joined Shulmans in 2016 and is currently undertaking her third seat in our Employment team.

Daniella graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2014, before completing the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at BPP Law School in Birmingham in 2015. Shortly after completing the LPC, Daniella returned to Leeds to work for an international firm, before joining Shulmans as a paralegal in the Commercial Property team.

During this time, Daniella assisted with a broad range of work including property sales, acquisitions and leases, title investigations and post completion matters. Daniella worked particularly closely with the property finance team, focusing on gaining experience in funding and development work.

After successfully applying internally, Daniella commenced her training contract with Shulmans in September 2018. Daniella consolidated her property knowledge by spending her first seat working with the Residential Development team, acting for landowners and developers in all aspects of the sale and development of land for house building.

Daniella spent her second seat working in our Private Wealth team, assisting with the preparation of trusts and wills, estate planning and applications for probate.

She is now looking forward to broadening her skills by experiencing a mix of contentious and non-contentious work that the employment team offers. 

Clients have praised Daniella as being “a pleasure to work with”, “very attentive” and “extremely diligent”.
