Sheffield-headquartered Taylor&Emmet LLP is welcoming four budding legal eagles who are embarking on their journey to become fully fledged solicitors.
Despite the challenges of providing mentoring under coronavirus restrictions, the firm is committed to supporting the quartet, along with its three existing trainees.
Amy Pawson, Natalie Savva, Lucy Carrick and Millie Clamp have begun the first six months of their training contract, entering Taylor&Emmet’s clinical negligence, property litigation, probate and childcare teams respectively. All have worked previously for the firm whilst studying, in both full and part time roles.
The new recruits join three existing trainee solicitors; Beth Jenkins and Martha O’Toole, who are about to start their third seats with family and personal injury and Kris Little. He is in the final stages of his qualification with the residential conveyancing team and is due to qualify in February next year.
Taylor&Emmet has also appointed recently qualified trainee, Laura Hardy, to its wills and probate team. She was offered a permanent position in December last year, subject to the successful completion of her studies, after demonstrating excellent client care skills and future potential. She will now split her time between the firm’s Arundel Gate and Ecclesall Road offices.
Sharna Poxon, Taylor&Emmet’s head of human resources, said: “I would like to congratulate Laura on her qualification as a solicitor and wish her every success in her new role. We have bright, enthusiastic and committed trainee solicitors, who have continued to work hard and develop during the pandemic and I have no doubt our four new recruits will rise to the challenges we still face. Technology has and will continue to support agile working and learning and this will only be enhanced in the future.”
All prospective solicitors must complete two years’ work-based training, comprising a minimum of three legal disciplines. Taylor&Emmet will begin recruiting for its 2022 intake next month.
