South and West Wales law firm JCP Solicitors are showing their continued commitment to nurturing young talent, with three of their most recent trainees qualifying as associate solicitors  - and opting to stay on with the company.

Jennifer Rosser, Rebecca Seldon and Paula Adams have all just gained their qualifications, after joining JCP as Trainee Solicitors in 2014.

The trio will now take up permanent roles in Commercial Services, Business Litigation and Commercial Property, based at JCP’s Swansea Office.

Claire Goldsworthy, Head of Personal Injury, who also serves as the company’s Trainee Mentor, said: “We are very proud of the impressive progress made by Jennifer, Rebecca and Paula and I would like to congratulate them all on achieving their qualifications.

“JCP is proud of its long-held policy of ‘growing its own’. In the last ten years alone we have taken on 37 trainees, giving them thorough on-the-job training, meaningful support and mentoring to enable them to reach their full potential.

“In fact, 36% of our qualified solicitors have come up through the JCP ranks in this way. The practice is invaluable for the young people involved since it prepares them for the working world and it supports them in carving out successful careers in the legal profession.

“And it has paid dividends for us as a law firm since it allows us to nurture the brightest and the best. We are pleased too that so many choose to remain with us after their traineeship comes to an end.”

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