Blacks Solicitors continues to demonstrate its commitment to the development and progression of employees, by retaining two of its newly qualified Solicitors and offering contracts to three new trainee Solicitors in its 2021 intake.

The two newly qualified solicitors, Ella Chapman and Aaron Johnson, spent two years working in four different areas of law and received a high level of training in each discipline, whilst experiencing considerable client contact.

Ella will join the Commercial Property team, that specialise in providing all property related support to property investors, developers and financiers. Aaron will be working alongside Ian Scobbie in the Commercial Dispute Resolutions team, to develop a specialism in insolvency litigation whilst also getting exposure to a wide variety of general litigation matters.

The three new Trainee Solicitors are: Victoria Adamson, Christina Donos and Conor Tobin. Victoria and Christina were both Paralegals in Commercial Property, and Conor came from Shoosmiths. This brings the current number of Trainees at the firm to six, all of whom will become fully qualified Solicitors once they have completed their two year training contracts.

Blacks Solicitors is currently recruiting for training contracts with start dates of September 2023 and September 2024. For more information, please visit
