BPE Solicitors has increased its number of trainees from eight to 12, reflecting the law firm’s growth and development with new appointments at its Cheltenham head office.
Sian Randles, Alessandro Morgan-Gianni and Sarah Dent have joined the firm’s Commercial Property department, while Lucy Robbins becomes the latest addition to the Commercial team. The group is amongst the latest trainee appointments at the firm, joining Zaia Ndokera, George Dale and Kathryn Broughton who commenced their contracts at BPE in April of this year.
The new trainees will each work in four different departments within the firm over the course of two years. BPE takes on trainees twice a year, and has welcomed eight trainee solicitors since 2014.
Originally from Surrey, Sian studied Law at Durham University and completed her LPC at Nottingham Law School. Sian has previous experience in both conveyancing and as a court usher.
After studying at the University of the West of England and the University of Law, Alessandro worked as a Legal Assistant for TLT Solicitors and a Construction Assistant at Wright Morgan Limited before making the move to BPE.
Sarah completed her degree in law with criminal justice at the University of Wales followed by her vocational training legal practice course (LPC) at the University of Law before gaining four years of Paralegal experience at Bond Dickinson LLP.
Lucy studied history at the University of Birmingham until 2014 before gaining a Graduate Diploma from the University of Law. She went on to continue her studies at the University of Law, completing her Master’s Degree and LPC prior to starting her training contract.
Speaking of the new staff, John Workman, Senior Partner remarked: “We are delighted to welcome Sian, Lucy, Alessandro and Sarah to the firm. It is an exciting time for us as we are expanding in many areas, and increasing our flock of trainees is a key part of our growth as a business. We are committed to finding and developing talent who will bring something new to the firm, and who will contribute to our success as well as the success of our clients.”
