Express Solicitors are delighted to announce the promotion of two Litigation Executives who have both been offered training contracts with the firm. Michael Green and Suzanne Conway have both recently embarked on their two year training contract with Express Solicitors with the view of qualifying as solicitors in 2017.
Michael Green joined Express Solicitors in November 2013 and originally worked on a part-time basis in the firm’s New Client Team, whilst completing his LPC at the University of Law in Manchester. Michael comments: “Since starting at Express Solicitors 18 months ago, I have been fortunate enough to have climbed the ladder from a junior paralegal role, to running my own case load as a Litigation Executive, and now I’m delighted to be starting a training contract. I am hopeful that this steady progression will continue and the excellent training combined with the experience I will gain whilst working at Express Solicitors will pave the way for a successful career as a Solicitor.”
Suzanne Conway joined the firm as a Litigation Executive in March 2015, working in the Road Traffic Accident department. After just a few months working at the firm, Suzanne was offered a training contract, she explains: “I really feel like my hard work has been recognised in the short space of time that I have been working at Express Solicitors. I am thrilled to have been offered a training contract and I am really looking forward to taking this next step in my legal career and qualifying as a Solicitor.”
So far over the past year, Express Solicitors has promoted 5 Litigation Executives already working at the firm to Trainee Solicitors. The firm currently has 10 Trainee Solicitors and the training contract takes 2 years to complete. During their first year of the contract all Trainees complete the Professional Skills Course (PSC) and in their second year they go on to complete the Express Solicitors Personal Injury Certificate.
Training Partner and head of the Employer’s Liability department, Richard Lowery, comments: “Express Solicitors are dedicated to the growth and development of its employees and our 10 Trainee Solicitors are proof of this commitment. The firm has always had a strong ethos towards the training and growth of its staff and we encourage all of our employees to complete training both internally and externally on a regular basis.”
