Wiltshire law firm Goughs appoints four new trainees

Wiltshire-based law firm Goughs has appointed four new trainee solicitors – bringing the number of trainees in the growing firm to eight.

Gemma Creighton, Megan Solomon, Caoimhe Edwards and Tabitha Stockham all joined the firm this month.

Gemma joined the real estate team as a paralegal in 2022. Having successfully completed her LPC this year, Gemma is developing her legal career with Goughs.

“I was delighted to have been offered a role in which I can continue to learn, grow and develop as a lawyer. Goughs has been a welcoming environment in which I have been able to thrive,” said Gemma.

“I look forward to what the future holds and continuing to work with clients in the commercial property sector.”

Caoimhe has recently been expanding her legal knowledge working with the private client teams at Barcan & Kirby LLP, and Co-op Legal Services prior to that.

Having worked within legal settings whilst studying has enabled her to have a strong foundation in business and the legal sector generally.

“I am so excited to be starting my training contract with Goughs. I am looking forward to my first seat with the residential property team in Chippenham,” said Caoimhe.

“Being passionate about the local area generally, I liked that Goughs has an excellent reputation and maintains strong ties to the community. I have found the team at Goughs to be incredibly welcoming and I look forward to what the future holds.”

Having spent the past year studying for her LPC in London, Tabitha joins the firm to begin her legal career.

With strong ties to the local area, Tabitha looks forward to developing a successful and progressive career in the South West.

“Having been to school in Bath and growing up locally I have always known about Goughs so to have been offered a training contract here is really exciting. From day one the Goughs team have been incredibly friendly and helpful,” said Tabitha.

Following completing her first degree in Law & English at the University of Liverpool, achieving a first, Megan received her GDL with distinction from The University of Law where she subsequently completed her LPC MSc.

Having also gained work experience with a law firm in Bristol, Megan is excited to begin her legal career with Goughs.

“Having spent the last year working hard to complete my LPC, I look forward to putting the knowledge and skills I have developed into practice,” said Megan.

“I am so excited to start my training contract with Goughs given their excellent relationship with and reputation within the community in Wiltshire. Everyone has been so welcoming and approachable and I look forward to what the future holds with the firm.”

Following the successful implementation of the programme last year, Goughs has once again arranged for the trainees to spend their first few weeks in their accounts and marketing teams.

This will enable them to have a solid understanding of how the business operates and gain crucial commercial awareness before they begin their legal training.
