Home-grown legal talent retained in the form of newly qualified solicitors

Blacks Solicitors continues to demonstrate its commitment to the development and progression of employees, by retaining two of its newly qualified Solicitors and offering contracts to three new Trainee Solicitors in its September 2021 intake.

The two newly qualified solicitors, Ella Chapman and Aaron Johnson, spent two years working in four different areas of law and received a high level of training in each discipline, whilst experiencing considerable client contact.

Ella will join the Commercial Property team, that specialise in providing all property related support to property investors, developers and financiers. Aaron will be working alongside Ian Scobbie in the Commercial Dispute Resolutions team, to develop a specialism in insolvency litigation whilst also getting exposure to a wide variety of general litigation matters.

The three new Trainee Solicitors are: Victoria Adamson, Christina Donos and Conor Tobin. Victoria and Christina were both Paralegals in Commercial Property, and Conor came from Shoosmiths. This brings the current number of Trainees at the firm to six, all of whom will become fully qualified Solicitors once they have completed their two year training contracts.

Tom Moyes, Training Partner and Partner in the Employment team at Blacks Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to retain both Ella and Aaron. They have both performed commendably during their training contracts and I am sure they will progress to have very successful careers as Solicitors here at Blacks.

“We continue to invest heavily in the junior end of the Firm, which stands us in good stead for our sustained growth in Yorkshire’s ever competitive legal market, and ensures that our clients continue to receive the very best standards of service. We remain fully committed to the training and retention of our Trainee and Apprentice Solicitors, and nurturing the next generation of Solicitors.”

Blacks Solicitors is currently recruiting for training contracts with start dates of September 2023 and September 2024. For more information, please visit
