New trainee solicitor appointed
We are delighted to announce the appointment of trainee solicitor Ben Mitchell. Ben attended Launceston College before studying Law at University of Portsmouth where he achieved a 2:1. He went onto complete a Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of the West of England where he achieved a distinction. Ben said “I am delighted to have obtained a training contract at Parnalls and I look forward to getting started and developing my career further. I have worked at Parnalls for just over a year and have been working in the Property Law Department, but will be gaining experience in Property, Litigation and Wills during the course of my training. I have really enjoyed my time here so far and have already obtained some really valuable experience. I would like to thank Parnalls for this opportunity, and to everyone who has supported me so far.”
Commenting on Ben’s appointment, Director at Parnalls, Louis Mathers said ‘It has been great to see Ben’s career develop from summer placements with us over the course of several years during his studies, to joining us as a legal assistant on leaving Law School last year. We are pleased to announce that Ben will be a trainee solicitor from this September and the firm is delighted to be able to support and develop local talent such as Ben.’
