Training Principal Sarah Appleton said “I’m delighted to welcome four trainees to the firm this year, all showing excellent promise for a career at Leathes Prior. With the worst of the pandemic behind us (we hope), I look forward to being able to properly introduce our trainees to the culture here at Leathes Prior; where we embrace collaboration, hands-on training, outstanding client care and of course a thriving social scene. I wish Anna, Milan, Kate and Kimberley the best of luck and look forward to supporting them throughout their training contracts and beyond.”
