The trainees will gain experience across different areas of law during their 2-year contract, including, private wealth and succession, litigation and real estate.

Our training program is very popular, drawing high-quality candidates. Each of the successful trainees has earned their place at the firm and is looking forward to the opportunity to work in an engaging and inclusive environment.

Trainees Jessica Townend and Hannah Cullen have also qualified this month into their chosen fields.
