A trainee at Lancashire-based Birchall Blackburn Law has qualified as a solicitor following a two- year training programme.
Lucy Fowler, 24, from Great Harwood, is celebrating after completing her training contract and securing a permanent position with the law firm. Lucy had previously achieved a first class honours degree in law from the University of Leeds and a distinction in the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the College of Law in Manchester.
Over the two years, Lucy has worked at various departments in the firm and across different offices but she will now become a permanent member of the private client team, which offers services including wills and probate, trust and tax planning, powers of attorney and elderly client services.
Lucy, who’ll be based in the Leyland office, said: “I have loved every minute of my training contract and I have learnt so much. It has been great to get so much hands on experience. I found the private client area of the business very rewarding which is why I chose that path, it involves handling client affairs and I’ve found it very worthwhile.”
The newly qualified solicitor now plans to work towards the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) qualification which involves a rigorous assessment process.
Anna-Marie Knipe, who is a partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, said: “We’re very proud of Lucy, she has worked hard to get to this stage and deserves every success in the future. As a firm we are committed to developing our people from the moment they walk through the door as a trainee and as they continue through their career.”
