One of the area’s largest law firms has announced the appointment of two new trainee solicitors.

GHP Legal, which has offices in Wrexham, Oswestry, Chirk and Llangollen, is renowned for its keen training programme.

Nick Hughes has joined the firm’s Oswestry office where his first seat will be in the family department working under the guidance of GHP Legal partner Alison Peters.

Sarah Tidswell was already working for the firm as a paralegal when she was offered a place on the solicitor training programme after impressing with her knowledge and expertise. She will be based in the firm’s Wrexham office.

Nathan Wright, a partner of GHP Legal and head of training, said: “When we offer a training contract, we are looking for individuals with a strong academic base who have proved themselves to be hard-working and fresh-thinking.

“Both Sarah and Nick have shown they can embrace the firm’s values.”
