Yorkshire Law firm Ware & Kay Solicitors (with offices in York, Wetherby and Malton) has added Lucy Riley as a new Trainee Solicitor to its team.
Lucy has been awarded a Training Contract which will see her working towards becoming a fully-qualified solicitor.
Lucy studied at the University of Hull for her LLB Law Degree and joined Ware & Kay as a Litigation Paralegal in 2019. She then studied for a combined Legal Practice Course and LLM (Masters in Law) in Professional Legal Practice and was awarded a Distinction at the University of Law in Leeds. Lucy has been part of the Litigation & Disputes team for the last two years and will continue to work in the Department.
Commenting Lucy said: “It is becoming increasingly difficult for law graduates to secure legal roles within the industry, let alone securing a training contract. I feel very fortunate to have secured a Paralegal role with Ware & Kay straight after finishing my studies at The University of Law. My role as a paralegal enabled me to gain invaluable experience and prove my worth to the company. I am delighted to have secured a training contract with Ware & Kay and I am so grateful for all of the support from everyone here. I am looking forward to having a successful career with Ware & Kay.
Lucy is one of a number of appointments we are making at this time. The growth of our litigation team is a testament to the quality of the work we are doing and reflects the growing demand for our services. We aim to ensure we have a very supportive environment here in terms of helping our staff develop their careers. Lucy’s training contract underlines our commitment to ensure we continue to provide clients with the first class legal service that they deserve.”
