North West law firm, Farleys Solicitors has continued its commitment to training the legal experts of the future with their latest intake of Trainee Solicitors.

Farleys has continued to expand over recent years to meet the increased demand for its legal services. Their latest trainee intake includes Alice Wood and Mehren Sulaman, who were formerly Litigation Executives in the firm’s Abuse and Inquests department, who will be joined by Amy Duncan, a former University of Liverpool student who has previously completed a number of work experience placements at Farleys.

Looking to build on the success of the trainee scheme, which has successfully kickstarted the careers of the majority of the firm’s Partners, the new recruits will join four current trainees who are halfway through their programmes, to complete two years of training before qualifying in their chosen fields. They will undertake four seats across the firm’s six North West offices, in Blackburn, Preston, Accrington, Burnley and Manchester.

Training Principal and Farleys Partner Nick Molyneux commented,

“As a full-service law firm, we pride ourselves on the well-rounded programme offered to our trainees, allowing them to experience a wide range of departments from commercial and corporate law to family law and personal injury, to name a few.

“With the disruption caused by the pandemic to many students’ education programmes, we were determined to stand by our pledge to support training within the legal industry and we are delighted to welcome the new intake. I wish Alice, Mehren and Amy the best of luck!”

We will be opening applications for training contracts commencing in September 2022, this coming January.
