Rollits appoints new trainee solicitor

Rollits has appointed Abbie Bielby as a new trainee solicitor, after she spent two years with the firm as a paralegal.

Bielby, a former pupil of Longcroft School in Beverley, joined Rollits in York in September 2018 after graduating from BPP University Law School in Leeds. She is also a graduate of Queen Mary University in London.

Specialising in property matters, Bielby focused on residential property sales and purchases in addition to social housing matters, including work for residential social landlords.

Bielby will begin her period of recognised training this month and the firm, which has offices in Hull and York, plans to welcome two more graduates early next year.

Commenting on her appointment, Bielby said: “The last few years have been very hard work but also really enjoyable. Everybody at Rollits has been immensely supportive and I’m looking forward to working and learning with them in my new role.”

Jennifer Sewell, partner and training principal at Rollits, said: “Throughout the very competitive interview process Abbie stood out as a highly talented individual and this has been proven since she joined us in the highly regarded social housing team. We are extremely pleased to be able to support her through the next stage of her career journey.”
