We are delighted to welcome two new trainee solicitors to the FBC Manby Bowdler team.
Mohammed Inham and Hannah Smith, who were previously Paralegals at our Wolverhampton office, have started their first year of training to qualify as lawyers.
Mohammed has moved from the Serious injury team to the Commercial Property department to start his training contract and Hannah has remained with the Wills, Probate & Lifetime Planning team for her first seat.
Hannah has also been shortlisted in the Junior Professional of the Year category at the upcoming Wolverhampton Law Society Awards.
Currently completing their second and final year of their training contracts are Joseph Martin, who is based in the Disputed Probate team in Wolverhampton, Jas Kler, who has moved from Commercial Property in Wolverhampton to work with Corporate colleagues in Telford, and Shrewsbury based Clarissa Pritchard, who has switched from Litigation to the Corporate team also.
Three former trainees have also recently qualified as solicitors. Matthew Allen qualified into the Corporate department in Wolverhampton and will soon transfer to the same team Telford, Kate Rowley qualified into the Family team in Telford, and Samantha Roberts into the Wills, Probate & Lifetime Planning unit in Telford.
Managing Partner Kim Carr said: “We are strongly committed to supporting the next generation of legal talent and are very pleased to support the progression of Mohammed and Hannah to become fully fledged solicitors.
“Joseph, Jas and Clarissa are all making great progress and our congratulations must also go to Matthew, Kate and Samantha for their hard work in achieving their official qualifications.
“A key component of our success and sustainability is the quality of our people and we will support their training and development over the coming years to ensure we continue to deliver the stellar service that FBC Manby Bowdler is renowned for.”
We now employ more than 200 solicitors, paralegals and support staff at our offices in Wolverhampton, Telford and Shrewsbury.
