The specialist legal advice delivered to local communities by Wards Solicitors has played a key role in drawing all three of our latest trainee lawyers to the firm.
Emily Symes, Sabrina Morey and Charlotte Strawbridge all cite the extensive local provision and wealth of specialist lawyers across Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath & North East Somerset and North Somerset as the main reasons they chose Wards Solicitors to develop their careers.
Emily, 24, says: “I applied to Wards Solicitors because I am from Bristol myself and providing a service which benefits my local community is important to me.
“It is also an award winning firm which I believe will provide me with the experience and knowledge to become a successful solicitor.”
Sabrina, also 24, wanted to work for a local firm and adds: “As well as 11 local offices, Wards Solicitors has expertise across many legal areas so I knew I would receive quality training and lots of support to become a good lawyer.”
‘Everybody’s local law firm’
And Charlotte, 23, can only agree. She likes the fact that Wards Solicitors prides itself on being ‘everybody’s local law firm’ with specialists in so many different practice areas.
“This is great for trainees,” she says. “It means we have the opportunity to experience a wide range of seats and learn from some really great lawyers.”
All three of our new trainees studied law at university, Charlotte and Emily at the University of the West of England, and all come from the South West.
Managing Partner, David Sheridan, comments: “I am delighted to welcome Sabrina, Charlotte and Emily to Wards Solicitors as trainee lawyers and wish them the very best of luck.”
Wards Solicitors is open and our teams continue to work on existing cases and take on new business and clients.
From early August, we are pleased to announce that we will slowly be starting to re-open some of our branches to clients, but all appointments must be pre-booked.
Availability for face-to- face meetings in branches will be limited, and remote contact with teams – via phone, email or video call – is preferred wherever possible. Our prime concern remains the safety of our clients and our staff.
Please note that all visitors to our offices must, by law, wear a face covering.
We cannot accept drop-in appointments.
How to get in touch:
We look forward to hearing from you. A list of our 11 branches is available here.
