Seven trainees begin their careers at Hewitsons
Hewitsons has welcomed seven new trainees to the firm.
The law firm, which has offices in Cambridge, London, Northampton and Milton Keynes, offers two-year fixed training contracts, during which the trainees rotate between four different departments to help them assess the best path for their future.
The firm’s partners coach them in legal skills through formal training and practical experience.
The nine trainees that were already at the law firm have now moved into their second year.
In Cambridge, Salvatore D’Arrigo has taken his first seat in the agriculture team and Casey Murphy has been placed in the property division. In addition, Thomas Leech and Edith Nnotum have moved to the corporate and the property teams.
Colin Jones, managing partner at Hewitsons, said: “We aim to provide the highest quality of training for our up-and-coming solicitors. We have a high rate of trainee retention and are proud that our ‘training to retain’ aim is being achieved.
“The trainees at Hewitsons continue to demonstrate a real talent and passion to the legal practice. The partners, solicitors and employees look forward to seeing and helping them progress in their careers.”
In Northampton, new trainees Gregory Hill, Thomas Nation, Victoria Robinson and Oliver Silk have joined the contentious, property, private wealth and agriculture teams.
Husnain Ali, Anastassia Dimmek, Emma Elston, Joe Greenstock and Charlotte Herrington are taking their second year and third seats, working with the firm’s corporate, commercial litigation, contentious trusts and probate, employment and property and construction teams.
And in Milton Keynes, trainee James Owen has joined the property team whilst Saffa Mir has moved to the charities team.
