Switalskis Solicitors is celebrating the appointment of three new associates.
Amy Clowrey from the child abuse compensation department, Catrin Lloyd from wills and probate and Shabana Aslam, who works within the residential conveyancing team, have all gained associate status following the successful completion of the Switalskis Associate Development Programme.
The programme launched in 2018 and was designed to give all staff – not just lawyers – the opportunity to develop their skills in areas including leadership, financial management, client relationship management and communication, and progress to a more senior role within the firm that provides opportunities for involvement in management and business development.
Switalskis managing director John Durkan said: “As a growing law firm with an eye firmly on the future delivery of legal services, we have put developing and nurturing talent high on our boardroom agenda. We are focused on providing the best possible service to our clients, which means we need the best lawyers and staff working in our team.
“We have welcomed a number of new people and teams to the business over the last 12 months, and we have focused on making sure those people are integrated into the team whilst also ensuring that everyone at the firm has access to development opportunities.”
“Amy, Catrin and Shabana’s talent and enthusiasm really shone through on the Associate Development Programme and I’m looking forward to seeing them continue to grow in their roles as associates. I’d like to congratulate them all and wish them a long and happy future with the firm.”
