Huddersfield-based law firm Ramsdens Solicitors is pleased to announce its latest intake of trainee solicitors, as the firm continues to pledge its dedication to the training and development of future talent.

The firm has welcomed five first-year trainees to commence their training contracts across the firm’s 14 Yorkshire office locations.

The newest intake will be joining the firm’s three current trainees, who will be entering the second year of their training programme.

As a full service law firm, Ramsdens provides its trainees with a well-rounded training experience, as they complete four seats across commercial and private client departments.

Ramsdens’ newest trainees include Ellie Folger, Leanne Gibson and Will Clark – all of whom began their legal careers with the firm via the summer vacation scheme – and external candidates Alice McGlynn and George Thomas.

Natalie Lang, partner and training principal at Ramsdens, said: “At Ramsdens we firmly believe our people are our greatest assets and this is reflected in the time and care we invest in our trainees.

“Career development is important to us and where possible we aim to tailor the training provided, to reflect the interests and ambitions of our candidates, to help develop them into the lawyers they aspire to be.”

Paul Joyce, managing partner at Ramsdens, added: “We are delighted to be able to welcome our recent intake of trainees following an unprecedented last 12 months.

“I’d like to congratulate each and every one of them for embarking on this significant milestone in their careers and we wish them all the success.

“We heavily invest in our trainees, giving them the opportunity to build a long-term career at our firm, which is reflected in the number of former trainees we have retained over the years, many of which now hold senior positions.”
