A leading North Wales law firm is investing in its future with the recruitment of eight young lawyers.
Gamlins Law has announced five new trainee solicitors and three paralegals.
Seven of the new recruits are from North Wales and one from Cheshire. The five trainee solicitors are Alicia Cooke, Laurel Martin, Kaleem Choudhry, Joanna Kumwenda and Tayla Rees, while the three paralegals are Shauna Bland, Chelsea Rushton and Larissa Solan.
Gamlins Law is the largest law firm in North Wales, employing over 80 people, with a head office in Rhyl and further offices in Mold, Ruthin, Denbigh, Abergele and Holywell.
Ron Davison, Managing Director of Gamlins Law, said: “We look to lead the way not only in the provision of high-quality legal services, but also in the calibre of people that work for the business.
“Investing in the lawyers of tomorrow is an essential part of ensuring we have the best talent across all our legal services. All the new recruits demonstrated a passion for the law and to help clients faced with challenges or opportunities.
“The recruitment of five trainee solicitors and three paralegals sets us apart from most law firms of a similar size and is a key plank of our building for the future strategy.”
Tayla Rees, a trainee solicitor from Prestatyn, said: “Being there to offer help and guidance during significant and challenging life events is hugely rewarding. No two days are the same and the law is continually evolving.”
Chelsea Rushton, a paralegal from Anglesey, said: “I chose a career in the law because it would challenge me, allow me to deal with people every day and to make a difference to their lives.”
Joanna Kumwenda, from St Asaph, has worked as a paralegal with Gamlins Law for the last year and is now about to start her contract as a trainee solicitor.
Joanna said: “I knew from a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in the law, helping people achieve the best outcomes. After working in the personal injury team, I am now looking forward to learning and experiencing different aspects of the law.”
Gamlins Law offers a comprehensive range of legal services including commercial, commercial and residential property, employment law, family and matrimonial, children, personal injury and clinical negligence, criminal, regulatory, litigation, inheritance tax, wills and probate.
