Barcan+Kirby, the renowned Bristol-based law firm, is proud to announce the addition of four talented Trainee Solicitors to its growing team. The firm’s commitment to nurturing legal talent remains unwavering, and the arrival of Clare Boulton, Jamie Lodge, Harvey Rainey, and Aishah Din marks the beginning of their exciting journey at Barcan+Kirby, commencing in September 2023.

The selection process for these trainees was a rigorous one, with aspiring solicitors invited to the firm’s assessment centre.
