Morecrofts Solicitors has welcomed two new solicitors to its fold following the qualification of trainees Kelly Faulkner and Ellie Slater.

Faulkner will continue her career in the employment law team at the firm’s head office in Liverpool, while Slater will work in the family law team, based primarily at its Wirral office in Hamilton Square.

The pair are the latest in a long line of young lawyers to develop their careers within Morecrofts, having joined from university. Their ascension coincides with a raft of rotations among the firm’s existing trainee solicitors and the awarding of three new training contracts for current paralegals.

The trio of new trainees, Sophie Kearney, Ella Neale and Hollie Randles, have now begun their first six months of training in Morecrofts’ family law team, based across Liverpool and Wirral.

Morecrofts has also appointed Aaron Ocquaye and Abigail Moore as paralegals in the private client department based in Woolton and the family law team in Allerton, respectively. Meanwhile, Jenny Lomax has been promoted to paralegal in the Liverpool office and Vicki Cooke has relocated within the firm’s property division.

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said: “Our congratulations go to Kelly and Ellie, whose qualification as solicitors is the result of many years of hard work, study and training.

“We have an outstanding crop of current trainees and we are excited to add Sophie, Ella and Hollie to those ranks as they take the next step on their own career journeys towards qualification.

“Morecrofts prides itself on offering unique pathways for young talent and this commitment is evidenced by the consistent progression of our paralegals and other junior lawyers over the course of many years.

"Indeed, the majority of our partners have risen through the ranks at Morecrofts and we know this gives real confidence to the next generation that they can fulfil their long term ambitions with us.”
