This month we welcomed our latest cohort of Trainee Solicitors to Geldards. Seven new trainees, both existing Geldards employees and brand-new faces, will complete their two-year training contract with the firm. They will each complete four, six-month seats in various legal teams across the Cardiff, Nottingham and Derby offices.
Their first week at the firm saw them undertake a five-day long induction. They all visited the Cardiff, Nottingham and Derby offices, met staff and Partners at each office and were introduced to the systems they will be working with, the other departments in the firm including Marketing, L&D and KM, and other activities they can get involved in, including GSR and Sports and Social.
The new trainees, and their first seats, are (back L-R, front L-R):
- Jon James – Injury Dispute Resolution – Cardiff
- Tom Wilcher – Commercial Property – Derby
- Al Hussain –Property Litigation – Cardiff
- Chloe Price – Commercial Property – Cardiff

- Robyn Jackson – Private Client – Nottingham
- Tamara Dasht –Dispute Resolution – Nottingham
Melissa Moran, Head of HR, said:
“September is a very exciting month as we welcome our new Trainee Solicitors to Geldards. Our trainee recruitment process is notoriously challenging, and as a result we are confident we recruit highly talented, knowledgeable and well-rounded Trainee Solicitors for our legal teams."
“I would like to congratulate each of the new trainees on obtaining their training contracts, and wish them lots of luck as they begin their journey. I would also like to remind them that they have the full backing of both the HR team and the rest of the company, we will support them in any way we can to ensure they become the very best lawyers they can be."
