06 Nov, 2014
Commercial law firm Watson Burton has appointed two newly qualified solicitors following the completion of their training contracts.
Richard McGlasham and Kirsty Adamson have joined the practice after undertaking two years, and eighteen months of training respectively, working across the firm’s key areas of specialism including construction, employment, and commercial property.
Both McGlasham and Adamson have joined the firm’s corporate team.
Kirsty Adamson said: “Richard and I have really enjoyed completing our training with Watson Burton and are delighted to have been offered permanent positions with the firm. Watson Burton places a great deal of emphasis on providing young solicitors with the skills necessary to progress in their chosen fields. We feel that this is the perfect environment in which to continue our professional development.”
The news comes as Watson Burton accepts a new influx of first-year trainee solicitors. Jayne Moyle, Tom Smith, Marie Stewart and Vinaya Jigajinni will work alongside partners at the firm, on both litigious and non-litigious areas of law and across a range of industry sectors.
Duncan Reid, head of corporate at Watson Burton, said: “Watson Burton is committed to investing in young talent. As a firm we place real value on fresh ideas and different outlooks. We are very pleased to welcome Richard and Kirsty to the team, and wish the best of luck to our new trainees.”
The appointments add to the firm’s growth, bringing the total number of lawyers recruited over the past twelve months to 9, as the practice reports a rise in profits for the year ending April 2014.
