TUGHANS’ CLASS OF 2016
Tughans has increased its investment in Northern Ireland’s legal infrastructure with the appointment of five new trainee solicitors. The latest recruits join the five-strong trainee cohort from last year and another five newly graduated solicitors who have just completed their training at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies.
Law graduates (from left) Kerry Doran, Pauline Walker, Gavin Robinson, Rochelle Martin and James Tracey will now embark on a comprehensive two-year external and internal programme which will embrace every practice area from commercial litigation to corporate law.
James Donnelly, Partner, Tughans, said, “Our recruitment focus at junior level is on young people who are both highly talented and very ambitious. We are committed to growing their skills in step with the firm and for the ultimate future benefit of our clients.”
“Investment in young trainees enables us to develop talent and achieve real depth right across our business. As well as providing a very dynamic and diverse training programme for our graduates, these five new recruits will experience all nine of the legal areas we specialise in at Tughans during their two-year training contract.”
The five graduates went through a rigorous application and selection process which attracted a significant number of applicants.
