Moving Through Career Goals One Step at a Time

Winns pride itself on the internal promotion of its staff and look to train and promote employees on an individual basis helping them to work towards achieving their employment goals. With this said we would like to take a moment to congratulate one of our solicitors, Martin Croft, who has been internally promoted from our Legal Clerks Team to our Trials Team.

Martin, studied law at the University of Sunderland and completed the LPC at York’s College of Law, will now be dealing with matters of disputed liability as part of our specialist Trials Team.

Joining Winn Solicitors in June 2013 after working in a series of high street legal firms operating on legal aid, Martin has seen first-hand how changes in legislation and funding have made many firms struggle. Thankfully that’s not something he has to worry about at Winns. Martin has built up knowledge of the firm in the year and a half he has worked here and has now moved on to his next career challenge.

“Many firms have been unable to cope with changes in legislation and legal funding and as such have had to make deep sacrifices and cuts to try and survive.” Said Martin, who is 28 and lives in Gateshead.

“I was drawn to Winns due to its innovation, stability and expansion in this changing economic climate. I wanted to be part of a thriving firm that is committed to investing in its staff.”

Emily Sunderland, Deputy Trials Team Manager adds “Congratulations to Martin on his promotion to the Trials Team, it is great to see employees developing their career. Martin will be a fantastic addition to our specialist team and we look forward to seeing more staff promoted within the firm.”
