Yasmin Barber

Paralegal

Whilst completing my LLB and LPC I was employed as part of the in-house team of company that regularly instructed Gannons. This relationship showed me how this firm could deliver commercial solutions to clients on a broad range of expertise.

My primary objective, as with many aspiring young lawyers, was to secure a training contract to enable me to take control and accelerate in my legal career.

Gannons presented me with the opportunity to join their team as a paralegal, to assist the Solicitors across all areas of law, with the possibility of obtaining a training contract in the future. Of course, I seized the opportunity.

Training contract

I joined the team in September and after 3 months Gannons honoured their promise and I was offered a training contract.

Every day presents new challenges at Gannons. It is a busy working environment that is always pushing into new and developing sectors as technology evolves and advances. It is a great place to work and an insightful place to learn. Everyday I gain invaluable experience across a spread of disciplines, increasing commercial awareness as well as understanding the key areas which gear business development and growth.

I am pleased to have the opportunity to have high level exposure to the breadth of expertise covered at Gannons. The ‘hands on’ approach enables me to understand and assist people and their businesses and be part of the team that provides practical solutions to complex and potentially costly problems.

There could not be a better environment to train and qualify as a Solicitor.
