Leading law firm announces another Trainee success

A leading North Wales and Shropshire law firm has announced the admission of another Solicitor from its longstanding Training Programme.

Katie Roberts joined leading North Wales & Shropshire law firm GHP Legal as a paralegal in 2020 and was offered a trainee role the following year. She was admitted as a Solicitor on 17 January 2023.

Based in Wrexham, with offices also in Oswestry and Llangollen, GHP Legal is one of the top 500 law firms in England and Wales and one of the largest independent law firms in the region.

During her training with GHP Legal, Katie covered work in the Prison Law Department assisting with Prisoners Recalls and Paroles, and in the Family Department assisting with a mixture of Divorce and Children Proceedings as well as with DASU (Women’s Aid).

Katie’s last few months of training were spent in the firm’s Private Client Department at its Wrexham head office, where she has ultimately found her niche dealing with Wills, Probate, Inheritance Tax Planning, Powers of Attorney and Trusts.

“I love being a Private Client Solicitor,” says Katie. “Every day is different and comes with new challenges because every client situation is different and every solution to those clients’ needs is individually tailor made. It is particularly rewarding to know that I am helping and guiding clients through what can be a particularly difficult and emotional time in their life.”

Born in Chester but raised in North Wales, Katie graduated from University of Liverpool with a BA Hons degree in history before going on to gain a distinction in the Graduate Diploma in Law at University of Law, Chester, where she also did her LPC.
