TLT welcomes six new trainee solicitors to the firm’s training scheme.

Sarah Bratton, Alastair Edmondson, Matthew Howells, Chris O’Toole, Chessie da Parma and Jessica Tuke start their two-year training contract working in TLT’s Real Estate, Commercial Services, and Banking and Lender Services Groups in the firm’s Bristol, London and Manchester offices.

The new trainees will each spend six months in four different ‘seats’ or specialist teams, getting first-hand experience of law in action and advising clients under supervision.

TLT’s trainee principal and partner Richard Hayllar said: “As a firm we are committed to our trainees’ development and training. We make sure they have a clear career path, encouraging them to build on their technical and soft skills to progress further.

“TLT’s trainees are immersed in the business from the outset. Through on-going mentoring and expert supervision they have the opportunity to be hands-on, working with FTSE-listed and national and international clients.”

TLT currently has 31 trainee solicitors working through their training contracts at the firm’s Bristol, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast offices.
