A local firm of solicitors is in high spirits after one of its dedicated trainees has become a fully qualified solicitor.
Ellen Roberts has secured a position at Shropshire-based PCB Solicitors in the residential and commercial conveyancing department, where she will divide her time between the firm’s Telford and Broseley offices.
After completing a biomedical sciences degree at Warwick University, Ellen switched vocations and joined PCB Solicitors in May 2010 as a Legal Secretary, where she combined a full-time role with achieving her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at Staffordshire University. Ellen has secured her new position after undertaking an 18 month training contract where she worked across all departments.
In her new role, Ellen will be working across all areas of property and commercial law, specialising in
remortgaging, buying and selling commercial and residential properties, and trade leasing. She will also advise clients on forming companies, preparing Statutory Registers, and the process of selling businesses.
Mike Surzyn, Partner and Solicitor at PCB Solicitors, commented: “We’d like to offer our warmest congratulations to Ellen on becoming a fully-qualified solicitor. It has been wonderful to see her progress through her training, and we’re delighted to be offering her a permanent role with us, where we know she’ll be a fantastic asset to the team here.”
Ellen said: “I am delighted to have passed my qualification and to be now working as a fully-fledged solicitor at such a renowned and experienced firm. Commercial and residential law is where my passion lies and I am very much looking forward to continuing to build relationships with clients and partnering agencies across the region.”
