Blacks Solicitors continues to support the career development of legal talent after retaining four newly qualified Solicitors and offering four training contracts in its 2023 intake.

Three of the newly qualified Solicitors have qualified into the Real Estate team; Conor Tobin, Victoria Adamson and Annie-May Dyson. Victoria and Conor were offered training contracts by the firm in 2021, while Annie-May Dyson will be one of the first people at Blacks to complete her six-year apprenticeship, subject to the results of the SQE assessment. Christina Donos has qualified into the Corporate team after being offered a training contract in 2021.

The intake into the Real Estate team follows the recent rebranding announcement of the firm’s specialist property offering and supports the continued growth of the team.

The four trainees who have been offered contracts are Sophie Whittaker and Chris Millen who are going into the Employment team, Emily Owston who will secure experience in the Wills & Probate team, and Crystal Pay who will work with the Leasehold Enfranchisement fee earners.

This takes the total number of trainees currently working at Blacks Solicitors to eight. The trainees will gain experience with fee earners in teams across the firm on a range of matters over a two year period.

Tom Moyes, training partner said: “We are always on the lookout for up and coming legal talent and having so many options available, from training contracts to apprenticeships, means that we can widen the net when it comes to attracting people to a career in the law. I want to offer my congratulations to Christina, Conor, Victoria and Annie-May in successfully qualifying, and I wish all our trainees success in the coming months as they work across different teams and in their future careers.”
