Trainee solicitor wanted

Do you know anyone who might be interested in applying for a training contract with Anderson Law LLP, starting later this year?  We have just announced a vacancy – details may be found at

For the benefit of our overseas readers, the process for qualifying as a solicitor in England and Wales includes a 2-year period of practical training, after most of the qualifying law exams have been completed.  Trainee solicitors used to be called articled clerks (or apprentices in Scotland).

We have previously trained 4 solicitors, one of whom is now a partner with our firm, and have 1 current trainee who is due to qualify later this year.  In chronological order of training they comprise:

Victor Warner – now a consultant with Anderson Law LLP

Julie Hutson PhD – now a solicitor with the Wellcome Trust

Paul Maclennan – now a partner with Anderson Law LLP

Lisa Allebone PhD – now an associate with Anderson Law LLP

AnnMarie Humphries – now a trainee with Anderson Law LLP

Other lawyers who spent part of their training working with Mark (during his time at Bristows) include:

Ashley Roughton, IP barrister at Hogarth Chambers

Simon Stokes, copyright guru, author, formerly with Allen & Overy, and now a partner at Blake Lapthorn

Helen Cline, professional support lawyer in the IP team at Taylor Wessing

Prospective applicants will find plenty of information about the firm on our website and on some of the postings on this blog, eg this one about our being recommended by IAM Patent 1000 (2012).

The Wordle at the top of this posting was created using the text of recent client comments about Anderson Law, including those quoted in legal directories.
