Leading law firm appoints new trainee solicitor
LEADING law firm Rollits LLP has announced the appointment of a new trainee solicitor who steps up after spending two years with the firm as a paralegal.
Abbie Bielby, a former pupil of Longcroft School, Beverley, joined the team in Rollits’ York office in September 2018 after leaving BPP University Law School in Leeds and adding an LPC LMM to her LLB (Hons) from Queen Mary University of London.
Specialising in property matters, Abbie focused on residential property sales and purchases in addition to social housing matters including work for residential social landlords.
Abbie will start her period of recognised training this month and the firm, which has offices in Hull and York, plans to welcome two more graduates in spring 2021.
Abbie said: “The last few years have been very hard work but also really enjoyable. Everybody at Rollits has been immensely supportive and I’m looking forward to working and learning with them in my new role.”
Jennifer Sewell, Partner and Training Principal at Rollits, said: “Throughout the very competitive interview process Abbie stood out as a highly talented individual and this has been proven since she joined us in the highly regarded social housing team. We are extremely pleased to be able to support her through the next stage of her career journey.”
