Laceys have welcomed three new trainee solicitors, Maria Gomez, Alan Stanley and Aisling Scott into the firm, to commence their training contracts.

Our three new recruits will have opportunity to work across different departments the firm has to offer and decide which specialist area to choose moving forward, once they have qualified.

At Laceys, we believe people are our greatest assets and nurturing talent is essential to the continued success of our growing firm. We have a proud history of mentoring trainee solicitors and developing their careers; reflected in our high retention rates of recent graduates and over half of the current partners having joined the firm as graduate trainees.

Mark Timberlake, Laceys Managing Partner, added “I am excited to welcome our new trainees and wish them every success in their new roles. I have every confidence that they will all play a valuable contribution to the firm.”

“I’ve been working with Sam for a couple of years on a very wide range of marketing communications. Sam has a natural attention to detail and a refreshing attitude to the work we’ve collaborated on. The launch of the new Laceys site is now the benchmark for the brand and business offering. Sam has been at the heart this journey and has been a key driver for the consistency any strong brand should have. It’s exciting to be working with a solicitor’s firm that really understands their vast audience.”

Jamie Shanks, Green Tambourine
