Trainee qualifies as commercial property solicitor


A trainee solicitor has been rewarded for her efforts with a permanent role at Sintons after successfully completing her training contract.

Charlotte Johnston has qualified as a solicitor having joined Sintons as a paralegal in May 2019, commencing her training contract in September 2020.

She takes up a role in the firm’s highly esteemed commercial property team, having gained experience of working in the team during her two-year training period.

Charlotte also gained experience of the department through taking a role as a real estate paralegal at Sintons prior to beginning her training contract.

Charlotte will now begin her career as a specialist commercial property solicitor, working alongside some of the most highly rated and well-known lawyers in their field in the North of England.

“I am delighted to have become a qualified solicitor and to be given this opportunity with Sintons,” says Charlotte.

“I loved my time in real estate prior to, and during, my training contract, and it’s fantastic that I can now take up a full-time role with the team.

“The department has such strong experience and expertise that it is a dream role for me as a newly-qualified lawyer to build my career while learning from such amazing people. I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to build the department even further.”

Mark Dobbin, head of real estate, added: “Charlotte is an excellent young solicitor and we were very impressed with her capability and attitude during her time with us as a trainee. I am confident she will be a great asset to the team, and I am delighted we have been able to reward her efforts with this role.”
