Leading Shropshire law firm, Lanyon Bowdler has welcomed two new trainee solicitors, Kate Baker and Katherine Marriott-Lodge.
Prior to joining Lanyon Bowdler, Kate worked for the National Farmers Union for almost 11 years, firstly as a legal adviser and then in the Legal Assistance team, providing support to members involved in disputes relating to their farming and growing businesses. She completed her law degree at Hull University, graduating with a 2:1 and, whilst still working for the NFU, undertook the LPC course part-time in the evenings.
Away from the office Kate has four young boys to keep her busy, and enjoys a variety of social activities, especially outdoor pursuits. She is undertaking her first seat as a trainee in the firm’s Personal Injury department based at the Shrewsbury office.
Katherine is also based at the Shrewsbury office, completing her first seat within the Clinical Negligence department. She graduated from Coventry University in 2009 also with a 2:1 in Law, and completed the LPC in Chester. In her spare time, Katherine is a keen horse rider and owns a horse named Izzy. She also enjoys walking, accompanied by her dog Jess.
Both Katherine and Kate will spend time in different departments within the firm during their two year training contracts, before qualifying as solicitors in 2013.
Training partner Colin Spanner said “Despite the downturn in the economy and the reluctance from many firms to take on trainee solicitors, Lanyon Bowdler continue to recruit trainee solicitors on an annual basis and have been delighted to retain those who qualified this year.”
