We’re pleased to announce that we welcomed four new Trainee Solicitors to the Barcan+Kirby team in September 2023. Aishah, Clare, Harvey and Jamie will be taking their seats in various departments and offices over the next two years. We can’t wait to follow their journey and see how they progress.

We spoke to the Trainee solicitors to find out why they chose Barcan+Kirby and what they’re most looking forward to during their contracts.
