Yorkshire law firm Gordons has welcomed its next cohort of new trainee solicitors after hiring four ‘talented’ graduates.
Alexandra Dixon, Chloe Higgs, Danny Barraclough and Kieran Doshi have started their two-year training contracts at the firm, initially joining the corporate, private client, property disputes and commercial property specialisms respectively.
The four will benefit from Gordons’ distinct approach to developing its trainee solicitors. This sees as much emphasis placed on personal growth and development as there is on enhancing professional expertise.
The firm positions its fee earners in the legal marketplace as ‘people first, lawyers second’ and ensures its trainee solicitor and award-winning apprenticeship programmes deliver against that promise.
Gordons partner, Victoria Davey, said: “We are totally committed to developing our next generation of great people and excellent lawyers through our traineeships, so we are very pleased to welcome Alexandra, Chloe, Danny and Kieran to the firm.
“They are all talented, ambitious and personable. These are key qualities that we look for in our trainees as we know it means they are already a great fit for our culture and are the type of people our clients will enjoy working with.
“We’re proud to be able to give them the opportunity to develop and thrive as they begin what we hope will be long and successful legal careers at Gordons.”
Employing 180 people, Gordons has offices in Leeds and Bradford. The firm’s clients include retailers AO, B&M, Heron Foods, Iceland Foods, Morrisons, Ocado and Wren Kitchens as well as construction and high-performance materials manufacturer Saint Gobain and international brewers Molson Coors.
