Five newly qualified solicitors have joined their respective departments across multiple legal disciplines after completing their training contracts with the national law firm, Stephensons.
Andrew Whitehead (commercial litigation), Alex Gill (clinical negligence), Stephen Woodhouse (employment), Sophie Maloney (civil liberties) and Natalie Parkinson (discrimination) each completed their two-year training contracts in August, becoming fully qualified as of 1 September 2017.
Partner Louise Griffiths, who oversees the training contract programme said: “It always gives us great pleasure to see those who have begun their legal careers with the firm fulfil their ambitions and become fully qualified solicitors.
“Successfully completing a training contract at Stephensons requires real commitment, adaptability and dedication to delivering the best legal services for our clients.”
Last year, Stephensons was awarded the coveted Investors in People Gold Standard following an exhaustive assessment process by the accreditation body. The distinction recognised the firm’s commitment to personal development and people management. Only three per cent of the Investors in People accredited companies are awarded the Gold standard.
Stephensons is multi-award winning, top-150 firm with 470 staff based in seven offices across the country.
