The leading regional law firm has welcomed seven new trainee solicitors to its offices across the East Midlands and East Anglia. The firm has also appointed four new solicitors who have recently completed their training contracts with Howes Percival.
The seven new trainees are Ben Hudson and Kieran John who will be based in the firm’s Norwich office, Emma Lant in Milton Keynes, Donna Helgeson in Northampton, Jasmine Mason and Gurjeet Kaur in Leicester while Kirsten Tinline joins the Cambridge office.
During the training contract, trainee solicitors complete four six-month seats, each one in a different department to experience different areas of the law. To get a good feel for Howes Percival as a whole, trainees are also encouraged to gain experience in different office locations.
Newly qualified solicitors
Following the successful completion of their training contracts with Howes Percival, four newly qualified solicitors have decided to develop their careers with the firm.
Miles Barnes, based in Northampton, has chosen to specialise in Corporate Commercial; Max Galt has been appointed to the Leicester office’s commercial litigation team; Katrina Aslan-Tipler has been appointed to the Leicester office’s planning department; Victoria Howe, based in Milton Keynes, will specialise in intellectual property and IT.
Howes Percival partner, Paula Bailey commented, “Our people are our most important asset and the recruitment and training of solicitors is a vital part of the future development of the firm.
“Huge congratulations to Miles, Max, Katrina and Victoria on their qualification. We’re delighted that they’ve decided to continue their career with us. The high number of trainees who choose to stay with the firm is testament to the quality of our training programme and the supportive working environment we offer our trainees. Across the firm, we have a reputation for promoting from within wherever possible so, Miles, Max, Katrina and Victoria follow in the footsteps of several senior Howes Percival lawyers – including partners – who joined the firm as trainees.”
