Sabina, Natalie and Josh Win Training Contracts

Congratulations to Sabina Haque, Natalie Hall and Josh Armstrong, who have recently been accepted on to training contracts with Winn Solicitors.

Sabina and Natalie joined the firm almost two years ago, while Josh has been with Winns for just over a year. Prior to commencing their employment at Winns, all three completed the four-year LLB exempting Law degree with integrated LPC at Northumbria University.

Sabina, from Benton, is currently working in the Portal Department, dealing with liability admitted personal injury claims.

Sabina said: “I am very excited to get stuck in and start my role as a Trainee Solicitor – I am looking forward to facing the challenges that it may bring. I am also excited to return to Northumbria University to complete my professional skills course as part of the contract. So far at Winns I have gained invaluable knowledge and experiences from conducting advocacy at Court to settling complex files. I have gained a good insight into this area of law which I believe has equipped me well for the training contract and further. The level of exposure at Winns is great as it prepares you for life post-qualification.

Josh, from Stockton-on-Tees and Natalie, from Durham, both work in the Post-Litigation Team within the Vehicle Damage Department.

Natalie said: “I am excited for this new opportunity. Winns is a challenging but rewarding place to work, providing excellent career opportunities to those who are determined and work hard. In the future I’d like to have the opportunity to focus solely on high value and complex cases in the multi-track team.”

Josh added: “I am looking forward to starting my training contract so I can face new challenges and further expand my knowledge and grow within the firm. Upon completion of my training contract, I look forward to progressing further within the firm, whilst helping it grow and succeed in any way I can. I enjoy the fast-paced, high volume nature of the work we do and feel as though I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. The people I get to work with on a day to day basis are great and have made my time here thoroughly enjoyable. The firm offers fantastic opportunities for progression and are intent on helping you to constantly develop and improve."

Associate Director Jo Amos said: "Congratulations to Sabina, Josh and Natalie on becoming Trainee Solicitors at Winns – this is a fantastic achievement. They have already made a contribution to the firm, and we look forward to seeing them progress on their journey towards become qualified solicitors."
