Tori takes the first step

A trainee solicitor has a firm foot on the career ladder after being awarded a contract by a Telford law firm.

Tori Shepherd initially joined Martin-Kaye Solicitors in Telford as a Legal Assistant in the firm’s employment law team.

Now she has begun her training contract with a six-month placement in the residential property department, which will be followed by six months with the corporate/commercial team and a further six months in the family division.

Tori said: “I’m really enjoying my role in residential property and I’ve already completed a number of files, with many more to follow. The training contract is an excellent opportunity to learn about the wider aspects of Martin-Kaye as a business, and to experience working in different departments with knowledgeable and experienced teams.

“I’m keeping my options open at the moment as I haven’t yet decided which area of law I would like to specialise in, so to work with several teams across the Practice will help me narrow down the areas of law that I enjoy the most.”

Senior Partner Graham Davies said: “Victoria has made a real impact since she joined our firm and we’re delighted to be able to offer her the opportunity to complete her training as a solicitor with us.

“The aim of the training contract is to enable her to learn more about the diverse areas of law that we cover, and to learn from our specialist lawyers who all have many years of experience in their chosen sectors.”
