Murrell Associates are continuing to grow and invest in their team with two new paralegals, Jessica Bishop and Emma Robinson, both of whom have recently been awarded training contracts with the firm. Emma and Jessica will complete their training contracts in September 2020.
Both Emma and Jessica grew up in Cornwall and have returned to their Cornish roots after completing their degrees in London. Jessica completed her law degree at BPP University and went on to work for a London law firm before returning to Cornwall. She has begun her training contract working in the commercial and intellectual property team with Rebecca Anforth, who heads up this department at Murrell Associates. Jessica says “I’m really excited to be given the opportunity to complete my training contract with Murrell Associates. They are a specialist business and commercial law firm, the only one in Cornwall, so the experience I will gain will really help me to develop detailed knowledge in this area of law.”
Emma studied law at King’s College, London. She joined Murrell Associates as a paralegal in the summer of 2018 after completing an internship with the firm. Her first seat within her training contract is assisting the corporate team. Emma says “Working at Murrell Associates has been a fantastic learning experience since day one and I am very grateful to the firm for supporting my further training and development. I look forward to the day when I can say that I am a fully qualified solicitor!”
Henry Maples, Partner at Murrell Associates added “We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to Emma and Jessica and look forward to seeing them develop their knowledge and complete their journey to becoming qualified solicitors with Murrell Associates. We are a specialist team and work closely with our clients and their businesses, so recruiting and training the right people for this is obviously crucial for us. I wish Emma and Jessica every success.”
