Schofield Sweeney continues investment in future talent

Schofield Sweeney continues to recruit, grow, and maintain the best talent as part of its investment in and expansion of its legal expertise.

The Yorkshire based law firm invests heavily in its staff and prides itself on being the first choice of employment for its trainees when they finish their training, as well as recruiting new trainees.

Emily Ibberson and Alexander Aitken who trained with the firm have recently become qualified solicitors. Emily takes on a role as a solicitor in the dispute resolution team in Bradford while Alex has qualified and takes his seat in the corporate team in Leeds.

I am extremely happy to have qualified into the dispute resolution team and to be staying with Schofield Sweeney. I would highly recommend the training contract they offer, as you are exposed to high quality work and offered lots of support throughout.”

Four new trainees have also joined. Harry Whyte and Darcey Sutcliffe join the commercial property teams in Leeds and Bradford. Leigh Freeman and Abigail Christopher start their training careers in the corporate teams in Huddersfield and Leeds respectively.

Luisa D’Alessandro, partner and the firm’s training principal commented: “We are very pleased to be joined by new talent, especially at a time when much of the news is focussed on job losses rather than job creation. We put a great deal of time and resource into finding, nurturing, and retaining talent. Our trainees often tell us that not only do they really enjoy working with us, but that they value the quality of the training we provide and our ability to give them the best possible hands-on experience and learning opportunities and throughout their contracts.  Our trainees and newly qualified solicitors are really important for the future success and ongoing development of the firm.”
