Seven of the firm’s offices will have new solicitors celebrating today, having achieved their ambition of becoming fully qualified solicitors after years of hard work and dedication.
New solicitors in Cheltenham, Worcester, Hereford, Cambridge, Cardiff, Wye Valley and Thames Valley will be taking the next step in their careers with HCR.
Emily Dalton and Emma Clarkson qualify and move into family law and dispute resolution in Cheltenham, while Georgina Hunt and Bruna Ronzani continue their careers in dispute resolution and corporate law in Worcester.
Over in Hereford, Laura Bufton and Matt Deem both move into dispute resolution as qualified solicitors. Also starting in Hereford, Stephanie Waters joins the private client team. Meanwhile, in Wye Valley, Rosie Lewis continues her career in dispute resolution.
In Cardiff, Lucy Edwards moves into the family law arena. In the firm’s Thames Valley office, Connie Lu will continue her career with HCR in commercial.
Rachel Turner, the firm’s training principal, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and I would like to congratulate all those who have qualified. The past two years have been difficult for trainee lawyers. They’ve missed out on the usual level of face-to-face mentoring but we have worked very hard to provide as much opportunity for the learning that being alongside colleagues brings.
“Being able to provide our talented, developing lawyers with the tools they need to take this first major step in their professional lives is extremely rewarding. Our training programmes cover everything that our trainees need to become the very best – which is exactly what our clients expect from us.”
