Joanne and Catherine Qualify as Solicitors

Congratulations are in order for newly qualified solicitors Joanne Blenkinsopp and Catherine Walker.

Joanne, from Bedlington, and Catherine, from Shotley Bridge, both joined Winn Solicitors as Legal Clerks three years ago, and were subsequently awarded training contracts - a testament to their hard work and commitment to the firm.

Catherine said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my training contract. It gave me great opportunities to learn and further develop my skills. I was able to attend an inquest at the Coroner’s Court as part of my training contract, which was fascinating.”

Joanne said: “Completing my training contract was an achievement and I am grateful that Winns entrusted me to start my career with the firm.”

The successful pair both completed their training contracts in July 2015, and are now working as Solicitors in the Trials Team.

Catherine said: “Winns is a great place to work with really good prospects. I have learned a lot during my time at the firm, and I have received a fantastic level of support.”

Joanne added: “I have enjoyed my whole experience so far with Winns. Now I’ve completed my training contract, I’m looking forward to new challenges ahead.”

Deputy Head of the Trials Team, Emily Sunderland said: “Qualifying as a Solicitor is a fantastic achievement – congratulations Joanne and Catherine. At Winns, we are dedicated to recruiting talented individuals and supporting them in developing their careers with the firm. We look forward to watching Joanne and Catherine progress further at Winns.”
