Elliot Clarke, Katy Williamson, Paul Mitchell and Sophie Hearle all undertook two year training contracts which saw them move around Ashtons’ offices and working in a number of disciplines. All four of them then went on to accept roles internally in their chosen fields upon qualification.

Elliot Clarke has joined the Medical Injury team in Thetford, Katy Williamson the Family Law team in Ipswich, Paul Mitchell joins the firm’s Corporate and Commercial team in Cambridge and Sophie Hearle has joined the French Legal team in Bury St Edmunds.

Ed O’Rourke, CEO of Ashtons said: “It has been an honour helping Elliot, Katy, Paul and Sophie to learn and grow professionally, and I am really pleased they have qualified and remained at our firm. I wish them all the very best in their future careers at Ashtons.”
