LAW firm Muckle LLP has appointed two new trainee solicitors.

Caroline Wood and Sarah Addison have started their two-year solicitor training within the Newcastle firm’s dispute resolution and banking & finance teams.

Caroline studied law at Newcastle University and graduated in 2016, before continuing her studies on the legal practice course at the University of Law in Manchester.

She said: “It’s quite a cliché, but I wanted to be a lawyer mainly because of the problem solving that comes with it. I have also enjoyed customer related elements of various part-time jobs I’ve had, so I am delighted to be starting my legal career in such a fantastic North East firm where the focus is all about meeting and building relationships with clients.”

Trainee solicitor Sarah, originally from Durham, graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Spanish and French. Sarah returned home to complete the graduate diploma in law and legal practice course at Northumbria University.

Jason Wainwright, managing partner, said: “As talented, enthusiastic and committed individuals, they are both already an important part of our team.”
