Trainee solicitor is raising the bar

Trainee solicitor is raising the bar

SOPHIE CLARK is enjoying life as a trainee solicitor at Henley law firm Blandy & Blandy.

She gained an A* and two A grades in her A-levels at The Henley College in 2013 before going on to study law at the University of Reading where she gained a 2:1. She was previously a pupil at Langtree School in Woodcote.

Trainee solicitors complete four seats over two years before qualifying and Sophie is midway through her first seat in the firm’s probate, tax and trusts team.

She said: “Knowing the town well and having spent two years at The Henley College, it’s nice to spend time working alongside [senior solicitor] Louise Nelson and other colleagues at Blandy & Blandy’s Hart Street office.”

“The staff have been enormously welcoming and supportive and I have been encouraged to get hands-on from an early stage.”

Caroline Casagranda, a partner in the team, said: “Sophie has settled well into the firm. She is a hardworking and enthusiastic team member who is always willing to help.”
