Rachele has been a valuable member of the team at Valens since she joined in February 2020. Rachele commenced working at Valens as a Paralegal, and in December 2022, was appointed as a Trainee Solicitor. Rachele has day-to-day conduct of contentious and non-contentious cases and transactions, and also provides legal support to solicitors and other members of staff.
Prior to commencing her undergraduate studies, Rachele worked in Auckland as an Operations and Finance Assistant for global software company, Orion Health.
Returning to the UK, she attended Queen Mary University of London, where she completed an Honour’s degree in English Literature.
An early interest in law, sparked by a fascinating period of work experience undertaken at Clyde & Co and further developed at sixth form college, induced Rachele to pursue a legal career. So, following her degree, she decided to embark on postgraduate studies at The University of Law where she successfully completed the Graduate Diploma in Law.
Subsequently, Rachele also went on to complete a Master’s degree in Law, incorporating the Legal Practice Course. Rachele specialised in real estate and employment law, and based her research report on an analysis of the current corporate manslaughter, corporate homicide legislation.
Outside the office, Rachele enjoys playing badminton, visiting comedy clubs and immersing herself in all things Austen.
