Law firm’s commitment to nurturing young talent

LAW firm Butcher & Barlow – with offices in Frodsham – has reaffirmed its commitment to nurturing young legal talent by offering new training contracts and celebrating former trainees’ success.
Having recently completed a full company rebrand, the Legal 500 firm is celebrating the recent qualification of former trainee solicitor, Catherine Vardy (pictured).
Catherine has been with Butcher & Barlow since 2016, first as a paralegal and then as a trainee solicitor and has recently qualified into the firm’s family law team.
She said: “I am absolutely thrilled to have completed my training contract and am so grateful for the support I have received at Butcher& Barlow.
“The firm has a very positive outlook and I have enjoyed excellent departmental support. I am very much looking forward to continuing my legal career with Butcher & Barlow, handling family law matters such as protective injunctions, children matters and local authority cases.”
Following in Catherine’s footsteps are two new trainee solicitors, who have both been with the Firm for a number of years in different roles, who will gain invaluable experience working across Butcher & Barlow’s 10 North-West high-street offices.
Trainee solicitors Casey Ashton and Catherine Landale have both started training contracts within the company’s experienced conveyancing team and will initially be based at the firm’s Frodsham and Bury offices respectively.
In addition to offering paralegal and trainee solicitor positions, Butcher & Barlow also offer a two week summer vacation training programme, which will soon be open for applications.
Managing partner Anthon Higham said: “Butcher & Barlow places great emphasis on developing and nurturing young talent. We understand that effective mentoring and training forms a key part of a young solicitor’s professional development which helps the firm to deliver the very best, longstanding personal service to our clients. We currently have nine trainee solicitors along with five paralegals with another six set to join us in September.
“Fifteen of our current partners trained with us and have gone on to play instrumental roles in helping clients to navigate important personal and commercial decisions.”
