Graduate recruitment partner Tonia Secker said: “We are very pleased to offer positions to all of our trainees from this intake. We have been thoroughly impressed by the drive, acumen and commitment exhibited by these trainees, and we are fully committed to helping them further establish their careers in the law.”
