Emilie Ancelin - Paralegal

Emilie is a paralegal in our French Legal Services team, specialising in property law and probate matters.

After starting as a legal intern for a Paris-based Employment and Social law firm, Emilie has gained experience as a legal assistant/paralegal for two French law firms in Le Mans, in the west of France, working on Property, Family and criminal law matters, assisting lawyers in their day-to-day work, dealing with client’s enquiries and legal requests in both French and English.

Emilie graduated with a Common Law LLB (Bachelor of Laws) with honours from Royal Holloway University of London in 2018 before completing her LLM (Masters of Law) with a joint Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Law in 2020. Emilie studied for the French Bar entry exam with the University of Versailles, in the west of Paris, and then the University of Le Mans in the west of France from 2021 to 2023.

Being a very caring and perfectionist professional, Emilie always goes above and beyond for the clients, doing her very best to understand everyone personally to provide them with the best and most tailored legal advice and services possible.

Emilie has been passionate about law since she was at school, always wanting to use her legal knowledge and skills to help people with their legal matters and meeting new people every day whilst constantly looking to learn new things to broaden her knowledge and extending her skills.

Outside of work, Emilie loves being involved in local charitable activities (fundraisers, sports events) and other representation and engagement activities (talks at local schools and universities, open days, etc.), playing and watching rugby, following Eurovision, writing articles, reading, travelling, and going to concerts, festivals, and talks.
