Posted on: April 21st, 2022

Local law firm Coffin Mew, which has offices across the South of England, including Portsmouth, Southampton, Brighton and Newbury, last week appointed four new trainee solicitors.

Anna Ignatova, Lula Barlow, Brittany Morton and Maddy Grzegorzek were offered training contracts after a rigorous selection process last summer and have been working in professional support roles at Coffin Mew expanding their knowledge and experience prior to starting their training contracts.

Anna Ignatova, trainee solicitor in the New Homes Team, is a University of Reading law graduate, who went on to complete her Legal Practice Course (LPC) with Distinction at Reading’s University of Law.  She joined Coffin Mew with some sound commercial experience already under her belt.

Lula Barlow joined Coffin Mew in August 2021 as part of the Firm’s Risk and Compliance Team.  She has now been appointed as a trainee solicitor in the Wills, Trusts and Probate Team.  As a psychology and criminology graduate of University of Southampton, Lula went on to attain a graduate diploma in Law from Bournemouth University and her LPC (with a Law Masters) at Guildford University of Law.

Brittany Morton graduated with a First in her law and business management degree from University of Sussex.  Like Anna, she too got a Distinction in her LPC, which she attained in her Masters in Law at the University of Law.  Brittany has been appointed by the business to work as a trainee solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Team.

And finally, Maddy Grzegorzek, has been appointed to the Residential Property Team, having originally joined the firm as a Paralegal in September 2021.  Prior to this she worked for local firms as a legal assistant and outreach support worker.  She is a 2019 law graduate from the University of the West of England and completed her LPC from the University of Law in Guildford.

Miles Brown CEO, Coffin Mew, said, “We are delighted to be able to reward Anna, Lula, Brittany and Maddy each for their hard work, commitment and abundant talent.   They all truly deserve their places on our trainee solicitor programme, and I look forward to seeing them progress in their careers.”
