Gotelee welcomes Sian Walker…

We are delighted to welcome Sian Walker as a trainee solicitor within Gotelee Solicitors LLP’s Employment team. Sian has completed her law degree at the University of Essex and Legal Practice Course and LLM at BPP University Cambridge. Sian will undertake a two-year training contract with us and currently completing her first seat in employment law. On successful completion of the training contract, Sian will qualify as a solicitor.

Andrew West, the Managing Partner of Gotelee Solicitors said, “We had a large number of impressive applicants for training contracts this year. Sian stood out because of her strong academics and her passion, commitment and determination to succeed. We feel she will thrive among our friendly and supportive staff at Gotelee and we wish Sian the very best both in her training and  her future career with us.”

  • Tenacious
  • Approachable
  • Reliable and
  • Intuitive

Here’s what Sian had to say: ‘Gotelee Solicitors holds a special place in my heart. After discussing my interest in the law with Marie Allen in Gotelee’s Ipswich office in 2016, I obtained a valuable insight into her role which furthered my aspirations of becoming a solicitor – it made me think to myself that this is exactly where I want to be. This was the final confirmation I needed to study law at University.’

‘After completing many years of study and at the point at which I needed to apply for training contracts, I again found myself with the same drive and ambition to work at Gotelee. Not only had Gotelee Solicitors played a huge role in my degree choice but I was also drawn to Gotelee’s training model, where trainees enjoy a high level of partner involvement and interaction.  After hearing the firm had been short-listed for the LawNet Best Community Contribution Award in 2019, it was clear to me Gotelee Solicitors have a people-first mentality and value their local community; attributes I identified within myself and my charitable work. Gotelee Solicitors’ ethos and principles perfectly aligned with my personal values and professional aspiration; I am delighted to be a member of their team.

I am now keen to expand my legal knowledge, qualify as a solicitor and become a well-respected professional within my chosen legal field.

Congratulations Sian and welcome to Gotelee!
