Hatch Brenner Solicitors on Theatre Street has announced that their most recent Trainee Solicitor, Alexandria Martin, has been admitted to the profession as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales as of 1 September 2020.
Alexandria joined Hatch Brenner in 2018, and completed four ‘seats’ on a six month rotation within the firm’s Dispute Resolution, Employment, Family and Private Client legal teams. She completed her Law Degree and Legal Practice Course at Liverpool John Moore University, and her Professional Skills Course through BPP.
Alexandria has accepted a permanent position within the Hatch Brenner Will, Tax and Probate team, where she will assist with all aspects of Private Client law including Wills, Lasting Power of Attorney and other Private Client matters. She led the firm’s Will Aid campaign in 2019, helping to raise £4,000 for the Will Aid charities.
Caroline Billings, Head of Private Client at Hatch Brenner commented: “We would like to heartily congratulate Alexandria on the completion of her training contract with us, and her subsequent admission as a Solicitor. It has not been the most straightforward final year of her training contract given the coronavirus pandemic, but she always adapts and delivers. She is hard working and attention focused along with being completely personable and approachable. She is able to form an instant rapport with colleagues and clients alike. We are delighted that she has accepted a permanent role within the Private Client team.”
Alexandria added: “Many thanks to everyone at Hatch Brenner for supporting me through my training contract. Being originally from Liverpool, many staff members have taken me under their wing and become my surrogate family in Norwich. Along with the varied exposure to challenging and interesting work which the training contract has offered, this support has been vital in helping me to achieve my admission as a Solicitor. I’m very pleased to have accepted a permanent role in the firm and to continue to work directly with local clients in arranging their wills and Private Client legal matters. I am going to be leading the 2020 Will Aid campaign for Hatch Brenner, and look forward to a busy November!”
Will Aid is a national campaign which invites solicitors to volunteer some of their time in the month of November to write wills in exchange for a voluntary donation to the nine Will Aid charities.
