Blacks Solicitors invest in home-grown legal talent


Leeds law firm, Blacks Solicitors LLP, continues to demonstrate its commitment to the development and progression of employees, by offering contracts to four new Trainee Solicitors in its September 2018 intake.

This brings the current number of trainees at the firm to seven, all of whom will become fully qualified solicitors once they have completed their two year contracts.

The four new trainees are; Amer Ali and Natalya Platts who were both Team Leaders in the Firm’s Residential Conveyancing team; Fiona Barber, formerly a Paralegal in the Family team; and Annie Beaumont who worked as a Paralegal in the Wills & Probate team.

Tom Moyes, Training Partner at Blacks Solicitors said: “This intake signifies our commitment to nurturing home grown talent, and training the next generation of solicitors. We have implemented a rigorous recruitment and selection process to secure the very best talent, and our clients will benefit from this as we see quality lawyers come through the ranks.

Our four new trainees all undertook legal roles at the Firm before starting their training contracts with us and we are delighted to be providing the platform for them to become fully qualified solicitors.”
