Harriet Ledger

Trainee Solicitor

Harriet is a trainee solicitor in the firm's family law department where she is supervised by Victoria Gethin.

Harriet obtained a 2:1 honours degree in law with Spanish from the University of Chester in 2015 and went on to successfully complete her legal practice course and a master’s degree with a distinction award in 2018.

Having initially completed a vacation scheme in the discrimination department in 2014, Harriet joined the team as a graduate paralegal in 2015 and went on to secure the role of case manager before beginning her training contract in the team in 2019.

During her time in the discrimination department, Harriet managed a varied case load of both complex civil and employment discrimination claims, brought on behalf of claimants under the Equality Act 2010. She specialised in engaging in pre-action correspondence, settlement negotiations, issuing and managing proceedings in both the employment tribunals and the county courts and assisting claimants in preparing for preliminary and final hearings in the employment tribunal.

Harriet now works closely with partners and solicitors within the Wigan family team and assists with both public and private law matters including divorce, financial settlements, contact arrangements for children and care proceedings.
