We are pleased to welcome four Newly Qualified Solicitors to our ranks within JCP. All were trained at the business and were offered permanent positions to stay following qualification, working from various locations in South and West Wales.

Emily Summer joins the Recoveries and Professional Liability team where she will work for commercial, banking and individual clients, assisting with commercial debt recovery and insolvency based litigation.

Rebecca Heslop adds her talents to our busy Family team, providing practical advice at the onset of new relationships or in the unfortunate event that a relationship or marriage breaks down.

Elinor Laidlaw joins our Medical Negligence team, who are the largest specialist team in the South West region and recognised as one of the leading Medical Negligence teams in Wales. 

Sophie Davies, will be based in our Fishguard office, delivering Wills and Probate services as part of our Lifetime Planning team, working alongside renowned Fishguard Solicitor, and her father, Arwel Davies.

Sophie Thomas, Director and Head of Commercial Lending Recoveries, who also serves as the company’s Training Principal, said: “We are very proud of the commitment and dedication shown by Emily, Rebecca, Elinor and Sophie throughout their training with us and we feel they all have bright futures ahead of them."

“Every year we take on a number of new trainees depending on the growth within the business at the time. We offer thorough on-the-job training, meaningful support and mentoring to enable them to reach their full potential. More than a third of our qualified Solicitors, and subsequently many of our Directors have come up through the JCP ranks in this way. JCP is all about maintaining valuable and long term relationships – and not just with our clients, but within our workforce too - so it is pleasing to see so many choose to remain with us after their training contract comes to an end.”

A further 11 professionals are gaining valuable experience as Trainee Solicitors for JCP at the moment.
