Fraser Dawbarns has six new apprentices starting their careers in the King’s Lynn and Wisbech offices. 

Five will be studying with the CILEX Law School while  gaining hands-on experience in their teams over two years before becoming paralegals. They will then have the opportunity to study further through the apprenticeship scheme to qualify as a chartered legal executive. 

George Davis and Isabella Thurnell will start in the residential property team.  Alice Gill will begin in the commercial property team, Megan Woods joins the private client team while Elle Walden begins with business administration.  Courtney Robbins has joined the litigation team. 

Each has come from local schools and colleges including, Lynn’s King Edward VII Academy, the College of West Anglia and Springwood High School, with others from Fenland schools.

    Iain Grimes, managing partner at Fraser Dawbarns, said: “Enabling lawyers to qualify into the profession through the apprenticeship route is still a relatively new option and one generally adopted by the largest firms of solicitors initially. 

“We are now delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to young people in our region as we seek to continue to develop our business and ensure we are able to provide the advice all our clients need in the years ahead.”
