Bridie Johnson-Power and Ryan Cotton have become the latest newly qualified solicitors to join LCF Law having completed their legal training with the Yorkshire law firm.

Bridie is now based in the firm’s Leeds office within the Disputes department, working on an extensive range of commercial litigation and insolvency matters spanning shareholder and contractual disputes, as well as breach of warranties and indemnity disputes, high-value money claims and interim injunctions.

She completed a law degree as well as the legal practice course and an integrated Master of Law degree at Northumbria University in 2016 and worked as a paralegal at another Leeds law firm before joining LCF Law as a trainee solicitor in 2019.

Ryan is working in LCF Law’s Real Estate team, in the firm’s Bradford office, managing both commercial and residential freehold sales and purchases, as well as drafting and negotiating leases and dealing with the sale of businesses where property is the main asset.

Ryan graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a law degree in 2016 and then embarked on a legal practice course and master’s degree at The University of Law. In 2019 he joined LCF Law’s real estate department as a legal assistant before becoming a trainee solicitor.

Simon Stell, managing partner at LCF Law, said: “We have a fantastic track record of supporting the future talent of the legal industry, whether that’s through the traditional university degree route, or our apprenticeship programme, which gives school leavers the opportunity to train in-house and receive a nationally recognised legal qualification.

“Both Bridie and Ryan have done extremely well throughout their training and have already built up plenty of experience assisting with direct contact client work over their time with us. We’re pleased that they have decided to continue their careers with LCF Law and there’s no doubt they both have promising careers ahead of them and can play integral roles within our well-established real estate and disputes departments.”

LCF Law employs more than 125 people across its four Yorkshire offices in Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and Ilkley.
