The Jonathan Lea Network Welcomes Three New Joiners To Their Retained Team!

Posted by on Jan 11th, 2022

We are excited to announce another three team members have joined the retained team at our head office in Haywards Heath. Radosveta Stoeva and Ashley Wong have joined as full time paralegals and Abi Hortin as an administration assistant.

Radosveta recently graduated from BPP Law School where she received a distinction on the Legal Practice Course. She also participated in a couple of pro bono projects during her time with BPP. In particular, she was a student advisor for the BPP Enterprise Law Clinic where she advised on a number of commercial and corporate issues.

Ashley previously qualified and worked as a chartered accountant in Australia before moving to London. Over the last seven years Ashley worked as a compliance officer at Deutsche Bank in London. Ashley completed her part-time LPC and GDL law studies in 2018.

She is an experienced property portfolio investor and landlord who frequently assists investors as well as leaseholders with their property, landlord and tenant related issues and had published an e-book ‘Choose the Right Letting Agent: A Property Investor’s Guide’.

Both Radosveta and Ashely were two of our two-week work experience placement students last summer who impressed us and we are thrilled to have them both join the JLN as full-time paralegals.

Abi brings to the team over 15 years’ experience in office management roles, particularly within financial services companies. Abi lives locally and since 2015 has been the primary carer for her two children, whilst running her own photography business and volunteering as chairperson for a local primary school parent teacher association.

She is pleased to be back in the workforce, joining our well-established administration team and bringing her valuable skills to the table.

Jonathan added “We are delighted to welcome these three accomplished new joiners to our team and we expect they will each make a valuable contribution to our business and improve our ability to offer a great service to clients. In particular, we hope to soon see Radosveta and Ashley start a formal training contract and in due course qualify as solicitors with us, thus further enhancing our already standout reputation for developing junior talent and offering career progression opportunities”
