FAST-GROWING law firm Square One has welcomed two new trainee solicitors to the practice.
Jenny Atkin and Ian Osborn have joined the firm which has established a strong presence in the region since its launch last year.
Jesmond-based Square One now has nine partners and an overall team of 36.
Training partner Barney Frith said: “We have had an extremely busy first year and attracted some of the region’s top legal talent.
“Our future growth means we also need to develop our own rising stars and Jenny and Ian will join our second year trainee, Lucy Bailey.
“We held an open day earlier this year and were extremely encouraged to see the high level of ability that is emerging from the region’s universities. In Jenny and Ian we believe we have secured two emerging stars and look forward to helping them develop their careers with Square One Law.”
Newcastle-born Atkin was educated at Walbottle Technology College and graduated from Northumbria University in July this year.
Osborn studied both the solicitor’s exempting degree and the MSc business with legal management masters at Northumbria. His first seat is with the corporate and commercial department.
