Emma is James & Wells newest Law Clerk in the Auckland Trade Marks Team. Emma balances her full-time study at Auckland University of Technology studying a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and working at James & Wells part-time. Emma fell into the legal profession by chance, starting as an office assistant at a small general practice firm. She was promoted and began dealing primarily with conveyancing, wills, trusts, and litigation. Emma began to develop a strong interest in intellectual property and begun her career at James & Wells as a secretary in the Auckland Litigation Team. Working in the Litigation Team is where she got a taste for the legal profession and has since decided to head back to university to study law. Emma’s two biggest passions are cooking and fashion. She is known around the office for never wearing the same thing twice and has a drawer full of high heels.
