Training partner, Barney Frith welcomes Square One Law’s two new trainees, Jenny Atkin and Ian Osborn
Jenny, a local girl born and bred, was educated at Walbottle Technology College and graduated from Northumbria University in July this year.
Jenny said,” Whilst at university I was principally interested in my commercial law modules and I really enjoyed being part of a small commercial team in Northumbria’s Student Law Office and gained valuable experience working with my own clients to help them to achieve their goals. I was delighted to be offered a training contract with this exciting new firm. I am currently working in the litigation department and I am really enjoying working on a wide variety of high quality work.
Ian studied both the Solicitor’s Exempting Degree and the MSc Business with Legal Management Masters at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. His first seat is with the corporate and commercial department.
Ian commented,” During my Masters I studied the challenges facing the legal industry and wanted to train with a law firm who think outside of the box in terms of their strategy and business plan, rather than conforming to the widely accepted model. I am extremely pleased to have been selected as one of the two trainees by Square One Law as I know competition for the places was very tough and this new entrepreneurial firm is attracting very talented lawyers, so I’m very excited about my future career at the firm.”
