October 2, 2019

Leading law firm Roythornes Solicitors has announced the qualification of four talented legal professionals to solicitor having completed their training contracts with the firm.

Bede Finnigan, Emily Hickling, Emily Wilson and George Faulkner have each qualified as solicitors and will work across the firm’s specialist commercial, agricultural property and litigation departments.

George, who studied law at Nottingham Trent University, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to become a qualified solicitor as it’s a really big achievement. It’s the culmination of six years training and hard work, so I’m feeling ready for this next step.

“I’ve been working within the property litigation team for more than a year in total and enjoyed my time with the team, who have been incredibly supportive throughout my training. They are all real experts in their field so having the opportunity to work alongside them has been an invaluable experience.

“Roythornes has also been particularly accommodating, allowing me to work two days in the Nottingham office – my hometown – as well as at the headquarters in Spalding, which is something I’ve really appreciated. I’m very much looking forward to progressing through the ranks and developing my career as Roythornes is a great place in which to do it.”

2019 has already proven to be a successful year for the top 200 law firm, with 41 new starters and 14 internal promotions across the firm’s four offices in the Midlands and East Anglia.

Vember Mortlock, Managing Director at Roythornes Solicitors, said: “George, Emily, Bede and Emily’s hard work and dedication to the firm, as well as their personal development, has been exemplary and I am delighted that they will begin their careers as solicitors with us.

“The qualification to solicitor undoubtedly marks an important milestone in any legal career and I join the full team in wishing each of them well in the next stage of their professional development.

“I see a bright future ahead for these rising stars and look forward to seeing them each progress through the firm over the coming years.”
