Reema joined Philcox Gray in early 2016 and is currently a trainee solicitor in the Housing & Public Law department. Prior to this, she worked as part of the Shelter Legal team based in Hackney. This developed her interest in housing law to assist clients on matters such as homelessness, possession proceedings and judicial reviews. Reema has also been a Legal Assistant at the Royal Courts of Justice Advice Bureau where she worked with clients most affected by the cuts in Legal Aid funding in order to obtain access to justice.
Reema studied law at the University of Manchester and went on to study the LPC at Nottingham Law School where she obtained a distinction. Throughout her studies, Reema took an interest in pro bono activities where she was a volunteer as part of the Streetlaw project as well as an adviser at both the Manchester University and Nottingham Law School Legal Advice Centres. This involved advising clients on a range of legal matters including landlord and tenant disputes, family and divorce matters as well as employment law queries.
