Moore Blatch, has seen a 100% retention rate of trainees on its well-established training programme this year, with six newly-qualified solicitors joining the firm.
Moore Blatch is a leading UK law firm in the south, pushing the top 100 with ambitious plans for growth and a reputation for doing things differently.
The training programme, which enables trainees to work right across the business and experience the full range of legal disciplines that they cover, typically lasts between 12 to 18 months. It sees trainees benefitting from a structured programme focused on providing them with the experience, support, education and hands-on involvement that will prepare them for what lies ahead following qualification.
Stacey Browne, Ashley Moughtin, Samantha Grose, Josie Beales, Rubilee Stockley and Katy Withers are the six trainees who will commence their employment with Moore Blatch as solicitors after qualifying at the end of February.
On her experience of the training programme, Rubilee Stockley said: “I love the culture of the firm, and especially the people I work with. From day one, I was encouraged, supported, and given all the opportunities I needed to progress. Staying was the only option for me.”
Ashley Moughtin commented: “Throughout my time with Moore Blatch, I have been given many fantastic opportunities but also a lot of responsibility which has really helped me to grow and gain a significant wealth of knowledge. Although I have always been given a lot of responsibility, I have also been provided with tremendous support and someone is always willing to help if needed.
The team I am qualifying into are experts in their field and, in my opinion, Moore Blatch is the perfect place for me to develop and gain invaluable experience. I have also really enjoyed the culture at Moore Blatch and I have had great fun getting involved in some of the sporting activities such as Football, Rounders and Netball.”
Managing partner at Moore Blatch, Edward Whittington has executive responsibility for the firm’s business and strategic direction. Under his leadership, the firm has invested strongly in its culture and people, demonstrating that putting people first also makes great commercial sense.
