Belfast law firm Millar McCall Wylie has brought four new trainee solicitors on board as part of its ongoing commitment to finding and developing fresh talent.
Cathy Kerr will join MMW’s banking and finance team from Queens University Belfast, Patrick Boyle joins the firm’s litigation department from Ulster University, the corporate law team welcomes Molly Rainey from University of Liverpool and Rachel McCullough from Queens University Belfast will specialise in media law within her new role at MMW.
This is the biggest single intake of trainees made by the firm, typically having recruited two graduates annually. Christopher McCandless, Chief Operating Officer with Millar McCall Wylie, believes the ongoing recruitment of up-and-coming lawyers is an important ingredient in their continued success:
“We are extremely happy to welcome another four new trainee solicitors into Millar McCall Wylie this year. Helping nurture new talent keeps our firm and the legal sector overall fresh and forward thinking.
“Throughout the pandemic, we made sure to keep recruiting, keep supporting young solicitors and keep focused on training and development within our existing employee base.
“Without a talented, motivated and well rewarded team, we cannot achieve the ambitious growth plans we have. I’m thankful to say our strategy of continually investing in the best people continues to pay off and we look forward to seeing the careers of Cathy, Patrick, Molly and Rachel develop,” Christopher McCandless said.
An award-winning, multi specialism law firm, Millar McCall Wylie employs 50 people between its two locations in Belfast city centre and East Belfast.
