Rachel MieleParalegal Corporate
Rachel is a Paralegal working within the corporate team, dealing with investment funds, potential new investor relationships and Companies House sectorial work including new incorporations.
She is in the work of the corporate team concerning: Funds formation, restructuring and exits, venture capital and angel investment. However, where assistance is required and it is suitable to do so, working in other practice areas within the office is not uncommon.
Rachel’s previous experience extends to commercial debt recovery across Scotland and England including small claims and summary cause action as well as county court claims. Her hands on experience in debt recovery ranged from advising a variety of clients from sole traders to large scale construction businesses on their initial recovery issue right through to raising legal proceedings. As well as instructing sheriff enforcement, mediating out of court settlement and conducting research on enforcement and recovery prospects in as far afield jurisdictions as Australia.
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. Her undergraduate honours dissertation focused on digital music piracy and its connection with intellectual property matters. She is currently enrolled with Central Law Training to gain an additional Specialist Paralegal Qualification in Company Law to ensure her legal knowledge continues to be up to date.
Rachel also volunteers with Family Mediation Lothian, a charity which provides a neutral environment where non-resident parents can interact and spend time with their children with a view to working toward making their own contact arrangements out with the centre. The service delivers confidential and non-judgemental support for families who are, for the time-being, unable to communicate and organise visitation without a third party mediation service. Families who use the service do so as a result of voluntary means or court order.
Rachel strives to provide clear, worthy legal services of a high standard.
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.
