We are delighted to welcome our latest Trainee Solicitor, Laura Duggan, to the firm.
Laura is the third trainee solicitor to join LDJ since 2015 showing the firm’s commitment to developing young talent and nurturing the next generation of local lawyers.
Laura began her legal career as a Paralegal at a well-established law firm in Coventry after completing her law degree at Oxford Brookes University and achieving her LPC, with Masters in Professional Legal Practice, at the University of Law in Birmingham.
She will now spend the first 6 months of her training contract in the firm’s Dispute Resolution department whereby she will be developing her skills and knowledge in Employment Law, Housing Law and Civil Litigation matters. She will then move on to another two departments over the next 18 months leading to her qualification as a Solicitor in 2020.
Nikki Greenwell, Training Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution Department said "I am delighted to welcome Laura to the firm. Laura joins us with an excellent reputation as a paralegal and we are looking forward to seeing her take the next step in her career and develop into a skilled solicitor over the course of her training contract. She has all the attributes to be an excellent solicitor who will hopefully remain with the firm upon her qualification”.
