A leading North Wales and Shropshire law firm renowned for its commitment to supporting the development of trainee solicitors has appointed a new recruit to its training programme.

Samantha Martin joined GHP Legal in the summer of 2020 as a paralegal in the firm’s dedicated Shropshire property offices at 21 The Cross, Oswestry, and was invited to become a trainee solicitor in January 2021.

Born and raised in Wrexham, Samantha worked for a year as a legal advisor in Warrington, specialising in IR35 tax legislation and employment law, after graduating from the University of Manchester in 2018. She went on to take the Legal Practice Course with a combined Masters at the University of Law, Chester, and joined GHP Legal a month after graduating from there.

Welcoming Samantha onto the firm’s training programme, GHP Legal Senior Partner, Richard Lloyd, said: “Over the years we have had a considerable number of first rate law graduates join us, many of whom have gone on to become department heads and Partners of the Firm. We are pleased to welcome Samantha to the firm and hope that, like most of our trainees, she will remain with us after qualifying.”
