Oswestry lawyers Lanyon Bowdler are renowned for professional excellence; and this reputation extends to the development and support of people working in the organisation.
Evidence of this is clearly apparent in the case of two fee earners, who having both joined the firm in administrative support roles, recently qualified as solicitors. Both demonstrated the ability to develop their careers via differing routes, having been encouraged throughout their studies by the firm.
Claire Tellis-Doherty, a solicitor within the clinical negligence department, joined Lanyon Bowdler in 2005. She initially worked in the personal injury department as a secretary before being promoted to legal assistant in 2006, and transferring to work in the clinical negligence department. Claire completed her studies and qualified as a Graduate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives in June 2006. In July 2010 Claire became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives; she continued her legal studies until qualifying as a solicitor in June 2012.
Clare Stephens joined Lanyon Bowdler in 1994, she completed a paralegal diploma in 2001 and attained police station accreditation in 2006, she continued to study part time at the University of Wolverhampton, achieving a law degree in 2007. Clare went on to complete the legal practice course and has just completed her training contract with the firm qualifying as a solicitor, she has achieved all of this whilst also raising three children. Clare continues to work in the crime department.
Managing partner, David Battisby comments “It’s always a delight to see staff mature and evolve within their roles, and we are very keen to provide support with professional development wherever possible to enable staff to go on to enjoy a rewarding career with the firm.
