Sintons takes on new trainee solicitor
Law firm Sintons has continued its commitment to supporting the next generation of legal talent by taking on a new trainee.
Charlotte Johnston has secured a two-year training contract with Sintons, which will see her take a series of six-month placements throughout the firm under the guidance of some of the leading lawyers in their specialist fields regionally and nationally.
Her first seat will be in Sintons’ leading real estate team, which Charlotte joined as a paralegal last year, to help gain valuable experience of the world of law ahead of her becoming a trainee solicitor.
Charlotte becomes the latest young lawyer to be given a training contract by Sintons, which has had an unfaltering commitment to recruiting new trainees annually for many years. Many of its past trainees go on to become senior members of the firm, with several now holding partner positions.
Alongside the current four-strong group of second-year trainees at the firm, Sintons also employs three solicitor apprentices through the six-year North East Solicitor Apprenticeship programme, of which the firm was a founder member.
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Charlotte as a trainee solicitor and wish her well as she begins her two-year training programme.
“At Sintons, we are renowned for our continuing commitment to offering opportunities to young lawyers. The training we offer is of the highest standard and equips our trainees with the skills, knowledge and confidence they will need to enjoy a long and successful career in law.
“Several of the current Sintons partners began their careers with the firm as trainees, which I think speaks volumes about the culture and ethos of Sintons. We reward hard work and dedication with opportunities, which has helped to create the first-rate team we have and continue to build.”
