Law firm appoints trio of newly-qualified solicitors

Thrings has appointed three newly qualified solicitors – Georgina James, Jake Wennen and Rhiannon Forbes.

James joins the firm’s Corporate and Commercial department, working out of the Bristol office, having accrued a wealth of experience in financial litigation and general banking, as well as completing seats in the firm’s property litigation and family teams.

In her new role, she will continue to work across the firm’s many corporate practices, including mergers and acquisitions, investment and banking.

Meanwhile, having cross-qualified as a solicitor, building on his initial training through the vocational CILEx route into law, Wennen will be based in the Agriculture team at the firm’s Bath office. This follows 18 months as a Chartered Legal Executive where he has developed a strong aptitude in areas of agricultural property law.

He will continue to build on his experience in the sale and purchasing of rural and agricultural property and the registration of unregistered land as well as acting for clients on a range of complex titles.

Also having cross-qualified through the same route, Forbes’ six years of conveyancing experience and time with Thrings as a Chartered Legal Executive will serve her well as part of the firm’s Residential Property Team in both the Bath and Bristol offices.

As part of the team, she will continue to support private individuals and companies in the purchase, management and sale of a wide range of properties for uses, including help-to-buy, buy-to-let and retirement.

Fiona Kellow, Thrings’ training principal, said: “I’m really pleased to see Georgina, Jake and Rhiannon continue with us, having qualified after taking very different routes into practising the law. It is always pleasing to retain young talent that we have worked hard to develop and we look forward to seeing them continue to reach their potential.”
