South East: Law firm appoints four new trainees

South East law firm Coffin Mew has welcomed four new trainee solicitors to the firm.

The trainees will rotate between teams every six months for two years, gaining expertise in legal specialisms including new homes conveyancing, catastrophic injury and clinical negligence, commercial property and restructuring and insolvency for their first seats.

The trainee solicitors are Beth Hullah, Ed Glanville, Joanna Cox and Stephanie Ponton. Both Glanville and Cox have previously worked for the firm within the New Homes team.

Miles Brown, CEO of Coffin Mew, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Beth, Ed, Joanna and Stephanie to the firm and am looking forward to see them develop throughout their training contracts. Each of them have worked incredibly hard to earn their place here at Coffin Mew. We are committed to delivering the best possible service to our clients and a big part of this is attracting the best possible talent so I’m really looking forward to seeing our four new trainees develop as the next generation of solicitors.”

A Lex 100 winner, Coffin Mew has long held a reputation for developing legal talent. Lex 100 is the student’s guide to the UK’s premier law firms and ranks firms based on 13 categories and, this year, Coffin Mew performed particularly well in the categories for work/life balance, quality of work, client contact and approachability.
