Home-grown talent 'key to succession' at Collas Crill

Collas Crill underlines its commitment to career development within the firm, as it announces its newly qualified lawyers and next cohort of trainees in the Channel Islands.

Ben Newton and Bradley Gibb have recently qualified as English Solicitors within the firm's Guernsey and Jersey offices respectively. Both lawyers will become Associates in the dispute resolution team in early September.

Guernsey-based Theo Hannah, Jazzmin Le Prevost and Jess Burgess begin the next phase of their career development at Collas Crill, Jess via a training contract, and Theo and Jazzmin choosing the recently launched Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) route.

The firm will also be welcoming new trainees Daniel Bradshaw and Collas Crill bursary student Millie Thompson in Jersey, and Laura Smith in Guernsey.

Michael Morris, Partner and Training Principal at Collas Crill said: 'Congratulations to Ben and Brad on their LPC exams which they passed with flying colours. Studying at this level can be challenging when working in a busy department and it's testament to Ben and Brad that they got such fantastic results while also delivering the high standards of service that our clients expect of us.'

'I'd also like to wish our new trainees all the best as they approach their final furlong to becoming qualified lawyers and look forward to supporting them over the next couple of years.'

Jason Romer said: 'We are passionate about trainee development and very much see it as a key element of our succession planning. Our structured programme offers a comprehensive grounding in the ever-changing world of legal practice and has been supporting the next generation of Collas Crill lawyers through the various stages of their training for more than 13 years.'
