A message to our clients:

With the recent move to allow shops and offices to fully re-open, we will continue to review our policy on clients attending our offices. Currently, we are not inviting clients into the office but we are able to briefly meet with clients by appointment at the door of the office. Please note that face coverings are still required indoors until further notice. We remain committed to following the Government guidelines as rules continue to change in line with the easing of lockdown.

We continue to operate our business as usual across all the services that we offer our clients, both current and prospective.

We continue to offer teleconference-based or telephone consultations.. We are aware that not everyone has been offered full vaccination yet and understand that some people may feel safer continuing with socially distanced communications.

Our family and wills / probate solicitors continue to offer initial advice remotely by video conferencing and by telephone for up to one hour (as advertised on this website). Please call us if you would like to speak to one of our experts.

If you have a case in court, please telephone us so we can discuss representation.

We appreciate your patience, support and understanding over the past year since the restrictions related to the pandemic began. We hope you continue to stay safe, and wish you a brighter 2021!

Finding a training contract that’s right for you is a critical step in anyone’s legal career, so when Bianca Jones and Olivia Stibbs were looking for a law firm that could offer a supportive, interesting and variable work experience, Battrick Clark delivered exactly what they wanted.

As trainees at Battrick Clark, time is spent working alongside qualified Solicitors in the three different areas of the firm; Family, Property and Wills and Probate.  The rotational programme allows trainees to spend a couple of months in each area supporting the Solicitors and learning on the job and whilst Bianca admitted that “moving seats every couple of months can sometimes be challenging”, she finds it exciting getting to grips with new departments and dealing with different cases.

For Olivia even though she didn’t do law at A level, she decided to do a law degree as she enjoyed problem-solving, and finding solutions to challenging situations can be a regular occurrence in the day-to-day life of a Solicitor.  As a graduate, she completed her Legal Practice Course and worked in insolvency for four years before taking up a trainee position with Battrick Clark.  Private client work brings lots of variety and Olivia when asked about what she has enjoyed most during your traineeship stated, “having direct contact with clients is something that I thoroughly enjoy and working with them to deliver a solution provides me with great job satisfaction”.

For Bianca, Family Law is where her enthusiasm lies with “no two cases being the same and also having the opportunity to interact with people from all different walks of life”.  She enjoys knowing that “she can provide part of the support system for someone going through what can be a very upsetting time in their lives”.

So, for these two trainees who are coming to the end of their training contracts, and about to start their lives as qualified Solicitors their futures look very positive – they’ve been exposed to a variety of different work across the three legal areas of service offered by Battrick Clark, they’ve been challenged and it’s been intellectually stimulating but they have found their niche’s.  Having the opportunity to study new topics and actually make a positive impact on people’s lives has brought great satisfaction and when asked what they think they might be doing in ten years’ time they both responded by saying unsurprisingly, “law is for life”.


Good Luck to both Bianca and Olivia – soon to be qualified Solicitors!
