Leading South Coast law firm Lester Aldridge is pleased to announce six trainees have qualified as solicitors after completing their training contract at the firm.

The firm also welcomed three new trainee solicitors (Brooke Manning, Thomas Harrigan and Kirsten Adamson) last week, as they begin their two- year training journey to become qualified.

At the Southampton office, new solicitors Emma Robinson and Emma Feltham join the Real Estate team and Tom Axton joins the Marine team (LA Marine).

In Bournemouth, Yessica Chadwick joins the Litigation & Recoveries team, Laura Offer joins the Property Litigation team and Fiona Oliver joins the Real Estate team.

Matthew Barrow, Managing Partner at Lester Aldridge, said: “I am really pleased that all of our newly qualified solicitors have chosen stay at LA on qualification. They will be an important part of the firm’s future growth.”

The training scheme at Lester Aldridge is well regarded, with “high-quality training and diverse seat choices”. Trainees praise the “amount of client contact and practical experience” on offer (quotes from The Lex 100). Training consists of four six-month seats in a variety of teams across the firm’s three offices.
