Rachel MieleTrainee Solicitor Corporate
Tel 0131 226 8223
Rachel is a Trainee Solicitor working in the corporate team dealing with investment funds, diligence exercises, social investment and potential new investor relationships.
Her areas of practice concern: incorporating and maintaining companies in both the UK and U.S, investment funds, due diligence, verification exercises and the project management of company acquisitions.
During her time at MBM her work experience has ranged from working with company secretarial clients, to managing deal logistics in both investments and sales as well as providing support for US work undertaken by the firm.
Rachel is acutely aware of the workload placed on companies when growing, and feels strongly about ensuring clients are made to feel at ease during what can be a strenuous process. She makes a conscious effort to explain and identify where potential pitfalls may be, and how MBM will work to correct or manage them. She makes a conscious effort to read, learn and understand the mechanics of how the particular business operates, and what is required to reach their proposed goal.
She graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in 2012 in BA (Hons) Popular Music with First Class Honours and subsequently completed the Accelerated LLB at the University of Edinburgh graduating in 2015. Rachel has worked with the corporate team since 2015 as a Paralegal, and following a period of study leave to obtain her Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Strathclyde became a Trainee Solicitor in the corporate team in May 2019.
Rachel also volunteers with a charitable body who provide confidential and non-judgemental support and mediation for families with children. Families who use the service do so as a result of voluntary means or court order.
Rachel strives to provide clear, jargon free legal assistance and realistic guidance to clients.
I enjoy trying (and occasionally failing) to keep up a gym regime, reading music journalism, political commentary and Scottish fiction. Learning obscure pop culture facts, watching documentaries, cooking, ensuring my music taste remains eclectic, Netflix binges and finding any excuse to shoehorn in words like eclectic.
"In the first batch of due diligence carried out Rachel, in particular, was phenomenal. She was extremely well organised and her e-mails were clear and easy to follow"
