VWV Celebrates Six Newly Qualified Solicitors

on Monday, 15 March 2021.

We are delighted to appoint six of our trainees as newly qualified solicitors across our offices in London, Watford and Bristol.

During these challenging times, we are pleased to still be growing and strengthening our teams, continuing to provide our clients with talented and knowledgeable lawyers across our many sectors.

Our training contracts are a vital part of the firm's future development and consist of 4 seats in a range of areas, helping our trainees get to grips with the way in which the firm works as a whole.

Newly qualified solicitor Sonali Shah commented:

"Despite the challenges of the pandemic, I have really enjoyed my experience as a trainee with VWV. I was given a high level of responsibility from day one but still felt supported by my colleagues. VWV offers an environment where you can learn to fly but you know there will always be someone to catch you if you fall. This is a testament to the friendly and supportive culture at VWV. I am delighted to be staying with VWV as a newly qualified solicitor in the Commercial Property team"

Our Recruitment Manager Emma Forrester reacted:

"I'm absolutely thrilled that we've retained our full quota of newly qualified solicitors this March. Three of them even qualified early using their time to count from previous paralegal experience. This is a fantastic example of the investment and commitment the firm makes in its future lawyers whatever the climate."
