Beaumont Legal Promotes New Crop of Solicitors
Wed 12 Nov 2014
Yorkshire-based Beaumont Legal, one of the fastest growing law practices in the UK, has rewarded four existing employees with a coveted training contract, as the firm looks to establish itself as the sector’s leading graduate and solicitor training centre in the region.
Law graduates Hannah Brown, Rebecca Clark, Tom Grice and Ben Webster have begun a two-year programme where they will work across areas such as residential and commercial property as well as litigation, wills and probate. Each will develop and expand their skills set, learning technical aspects and processes from day one, on their way to becoming a fully-qualified solicitor.
The four new trainee solicitors all joined Beaumont Legal as university graduates; Becky and Ben both received a Law degree and Masters in Law in Practice from Huddersfield University, while Hannah graduated in Law at Sheffield University. Tom, who has been with the firm since completing his Law degree at Bradford University in 2012, started on the separate representation team before applying for a training contract last year.
Nick Masheder, Partner and Head of Conveyancing at Beaumont Legal said:
“We have some fantastic young talent here and as we continue to grow as a firm, awarding four solicitor training contracts each year is a key part of how we will continue to deliver the very best legal services in the future. We believe in investing in talent and rewarding hard work, and have already begun the search for our next intake of trainees.
“With a recent £150,000 investment in our training academy we’ve also opened up opportunities for a variety of graduates who don’t have a background in law. There are more ways than ever for young people to work their way into a legal career.”
Beaumont Legal is at the forefront of the provision of modern legal services with a reputation for providing quality, personal service online or in person. The firm can trace it roots in Wakefield back to the 19th century, and recently opened its second office in the city, which has become the home of its training academy.
