Thrings “invests in next generation” with latest appointments

By Nick Batten on March 03, 2018

National law firm, Thrings, has strengthened its commercial offering to clients by appointing three newly-qualified solicitors.

Robyn Rumble, Alexia Aradipiotis and Carys Webb have all secured positions after successfully completing structured, two-year training contracts with the firm.

Robyn and Alexia will bolster Thrings’ Commercial Property teams, while Carys will join the firm’s Company Commercial team. All three will work with colleagues in Thrings’ main UK offices in Swindon, Bath, Bristol, London and Hampshire.

During the course of four six-month seats, the trio gained experience of “contentious and non-contentious” work in different practice areas. They also received ongoing professional and personal support and guidance from senior team members through the firm’s ‘buddy’ system.

Robyn said: “The training throughout my time at Thrings has allowed me to progress from paralegal to qualified solicitor. I’ve had exposure to extremely wide-ranging, complex and challenging matters, and been given the opportunity to form solid and hopefully long-lasting professional relationships with colleagues and clients alike.”

Alexia said: “During my training contract I have been involved in a number of complex matters, had a high level of client contact and been given direct responsibility to manage my own files as well as lots of encouragement to participate in business development activities. The firm is incredibly supportive and takes the time to invest in and nurture its trainees.”

Carys added that the three have had “a huge amount of support and encouragement” from their senior colleagues.

Simon Holdsworth, managing partner of Thrings, said: “Thrings prides itself on attracting and supporting talented, ambitious and hard-working people, whose knowledge, expertise and skills ensure the firm provides first-class, tailored legal advice to clients at all times.

“With Thrings continuing to work closely with commercial and private clients across the South West, and the firm recently restating its long-term commitment to the London and Hampshire legal markets, Robyn, Alexia and Carys are qualifying at a very exciting time. I would like to congratulate each of them for reaching what is a key milestone in their careers.”
