Wollen Michelmore Welcome Two New Trainees to the Firm

BUDDING solicitors Rebekah Brook and Georgia Galsworthy have climbed the first rung of the legal jobs ladder – thanks to South Devon law firm Wollen Michelmore.

They have started work as trainee solicitors at the fast-growing company which takes on two new trainees every September.

Torquay-born Rebekah 26, went to school at St Cuthbert Mayne School in the town. She took her Law Degree at Exeter University and went on to complete her LPC and Masters at the University of Law before joining Wollen Michelmore.

Rebekah said:

“I chose Wollen Michelmore because I wanted to be with a firm that would help me grow and allow me to be hands on. Since starting with the firm I have already been drafting wills, codicils and LPAs.”

Georgia also completed her LPC and Masters with the University of Law. The 25-year-old is originally from Oxford but grew up and went to school in Bude in Cornwall. She studied at Plymouth University for four years.

Georgia said:

“I wanted to join Wollen Michelmore because they are extremely approachable and put emphasis on ensuring the training contract is tailored to you.

“It was also a real advantage that they are able to provide me with experience in a broad range of practice areas. I have been made to feel extremely welcome and like their hands-on approach to helping me get the best out of my training contract.”

Wollen Michelmore employ two new trainee solicitors each September as part of their training contract, a two-year on the job training scheme which is a standard way to qualify as a solicitor.

The contract gives trainees the opportunity to cover all areas of law, including Private Client, Family, Dispute Resolution, Property and Commercial law, before they decide in which field they want to specialise.

The firm can also offer trainees the chance and flexibility of working across the county as it now as has offices in Torquay, Newton Abbot, Dartmouth, Barnstaple and Exeter. Qualifying applicants can also come from across Devon.

Rachel Carter, Partner and Training Principal at Wollen Michelmore, said:

“Trainees are vital to the successful development of a firm as they are our future leaders. Our training contracts provide a thorough insight into this work and are tailored to each trainee to ensure that upon qualification they have all of the skills and experience necessary to practise as a solicitor”

Rebekah has started in the Torquay office taking her first ‘seat’ in the Private Client department.

Georgia Galsworthy has joined the Family department at Newton Abbot. They will move to work in other areas after three to six months.

The closing date for the 2019 Training Contract applications closed on September 17 and will re-open again in July 2019 for 2020 start. More information about the training contract can be found on the website
