Gordons celebrates graduation of three apprentices

Gordons is celebrating the latest three graduates of its legal apprenticeship scheme.

Albert Bell, Joanne Beevor and Ciaran Mallon have all qualified as chartered legal executives within the Leeds and Bradford law firm’s construction, dispute resolution and commercial property teams, respectively.

Gordons has taken on 23 apprentices since launching its apprenticeship scheme in 2011. As part of the programme, the law firm provided the three apprentices with practical, hands-on experience and academic study, as well as paying their salaries and course fees.

The firm conducted interviews for this year’s intake of potential apprentices last month.

Victoria Davey, partner and head of operations at Gordons, said: “Albert, Joanne and Ciaran are a real credit to Gordons and valued members of the firm. We’re thrilled to be celebrating their graduations five years on from when they joined Gordons as apprentices.”

“All three of them have forged some really strong relationships with a number of our clients, which is testament to how well they represent our ‘people first, lawyers second’ culture.”

“We’re dedicated to developing people from a range of different backgrounds into our partners of the future. Albert, Joanne and Ciaran are further excellent examples of young lawyers who have all the qualities to continue to make a great impression with clients and colleagues as their careers progress.”
