George Becomes a Trainee Solicitor!

George Becomes a Trainee Solicitor!

We are delighted to announce that George Harrison as of 1st March 2023 has started a training contract to eventually qualify with us as a solicitor. George joined us initially as a paralegal following a three-week internship with the firm.

He has proved to be a dedicated and well-respected member of the team and will be spending his first six working exclusively with our dispute resolution team.

George said “I have really enjoyed my time as a paralegal at The Jonathan Lea Network. I am delighted to have become a trainee solicitor and I look forward to achieving my goal of becoming a fully qualified solicitor at the firm.” 

Jonathan added “George really impressed us on his work experience placement over a year ago now. He has come a long way since then. George regularly goes above and beyond for clients and is a naturally hard working, diligent and ambitious individual. As part of his training contract we were very pleased to be able to sponsor George’s remaining SQE course and exam fees.”
