Leading law firm Arthur Cox has appointed five new trainee solicitors to its Belfast city centre office.

The group, comprising of recent graduates James Mulligan, Sarah Swann, Maeve Williams, Lucy McKee, and Christopher Dickison, is the latest cohort to join the firm’s industry-leading training programme.

Working closely with Partners, the trainees will gain experience across each of Arthur Cox’s four main practice areas – corporate, finance, litigation and property.

Catriona Gibson, Managing Partner, Arthur Cox commented:

“Each year, we look forward to welcoming a new group of trainee solicitors, chosen because they represent some of the most dynamic and forward-thinking new lawyers among those to have recently graduated.

“That makes them a natural fit for Arthur Cox, as we seek to further build on our reputation as one of Northern Ireland’s most innovative law firms at the forefront of contemporary legal developments.

“We invest significant time and resources into developing our trainee lawyers and it is our privilege to work alongside them as we aim to provide unrivalled insight into our full range of practice areas.”

Arthur Cox is also planning ahead for future intakes of trainee solicitors and is hosting an opening evening for prospective trainees taking place in the Belfast office on Wednesday 24th October.

Commencing at 6.30pm, Arthur Cox Partners and Associates will deliver in-depth workshops focused on how best to perform at interview and how to draft an effective CV.

Arthur Cox advises leading corporate clients, Government and the SME sector. In addition to Belfast, the firm has offices in Dublin, London, New York, and Silicon Valley.

Applications are now open for the next intake of trainees with a deadline of 7th November. For more information, visit www.arthurcox.com/belfast2019.
