Next-generation law firm Taylor Vinters has welcomed a wealth of new talent to its offices in London and Cambridge this month with seven new trainee lawyers.

The trainees will embark on an extensive two-year training programme that will allow them to gain hands-on experience across multiple jurisdictions with the international firm. Areas of focus for the trainees will include technology, investment and private client.

Managing partner Ed Turner said: ‘Each year, we’re thrilled to welcome trainees of an exceedingly high calibre, and this year is no exception. The candidates we’ve chosen carry fantastic potential, and we ultimately hope that a long and successful career with the firm will follow.’

The new starters include graduates from BPP Cambridge, Kaplan Law School and the University of Law in Guildford. They look set to add an interesting dynamic to the personality of the company – the group boasts a surfer, a rock singer and a possible future Taylor Vinters’ netball team star.

The trainees, pictured on the back row, from light to right are Becky Everitt, Emily Woodhouse, Kara Swift, James Taylor, Geoff Dragon, Kirsty Devine and Emma Gilbert.
