Blacks Solicitors has retained two of its newly qualified solicitors and offered contracts to three new trainee solicitors in its 2021 intake.
The two newly qualified solicitors, Ella Chapman and Aaron Johnson, spent two years working in four different areas of law and received training in each discipline, whilst experiencing client contact.
Chapman will join the commercial property team, that specialises in providing all property-related support to property investors, developers and financiers. Johnson will be working in the commercial dispute resolutions team, to develop a specialism in insolvency litigation whilst also getting exposure to general litigation matters.
The three new trainee solicitors, Victoria Adamson, Christina Donos and Conor Tobin, bring the current number of trainees at the firm to six.
Training partner Tom Moyes commented: 'We are delighted to retain both Ella and Aaron. They have both performed commendably during their training contracts and I am sure they will progress to have very successful careers as solicitors here at Blacks.
'We continue to invest heavily in the junior end of the firm, which stands us in good stead for our sustained growth in Yorkshire’s ever competitive legal market, and ensures that our clients continue to receive the very best standards of service. We remain fully committed to the training and retention of our trainee and apprentice solicitors, and nurturing the next generation of solicitors.'
