Clarion continues to invest in new talent
LAW FIRM Clarion says it is continuing to invest in new talent with the appointment of four trainee solicitors.
David Spence, Stephanie Shepherd, Hannah Newbery and Avril Mullin are the latest recruits to begin a training contract with Clarion this month, gaining experience in at least four departments over two years.
Initially joining the corporate team at Clarion, Mr Spence comes from an arts background, taking a graduate diploma in law in 2013. He recently gained a distinction in his legal practice course at BPP in Leeds.
With a first class law degree from Canterbury Christ Church University and an MSc in law, business and management, Ms Shepherd will begin her traineeship in Clarion’s IP team.
Hannah Newbery and Avril Mullin, who have both spent the last 12 months as paralegals in Clarion’s banking team, will move to the property team and the family team respectively for their first placements.
Roger Hutton, joint managing partner at Clarion, said: “We have been fortunate once again to have been able to choose from some of the brightest law graduates.”
