Clarion’s costs team appoints its fourth and fifth apprentice paralegals

Clarion’s costs and litigation funding team has appointed its fourth and fifth apprentice paralegals.

Kelsey Price and Casey McGregor will study CILEX to qualify as legal executives at Clarion and will both train and specialise in Court of Protection costs.

Price and McGregor are the tenth and eleventh apprentices to be taken on by Clarion since the launch of the firm’s apprenticeship programme just four years ago.

In less than a decade Clarion’s in-house legal costs team has grown to become the largest to include an external offering in the UK, building a national reputation for its specialism in Court of Protection costs. The team also regularly deal with multi-million-pound legal costs that arise from high-value personal injury, clinical negligence and commercial litigation claims.

Clarion partner Andrew McAulay, who leads the costs and litigation funding team, said: “We are really pleased to welcome two new additions to our team, which is growing to meet ever increasing levels of demand for our specialised services. Since starting out in 2011 we have grown to 12 and we act for over 150 law firms across the UK.

“Our enthusiastic young apprentices are a credit to Clarion and play an integral role in delivering high levels of service to our clients in Yorkshire and across the UK.”

Price and McGregor join the 150-strong Clarion team, which includes 21 partners and is based at its Elizabeth House offices on Queen Street in Leeds.
