For one Trainee Solicitor, 1st March will forever be remembered as an important milestone in their career, as Joe Taylor takes the next step and qualifies as a Solicitor.

Joe joined the Warner Goodman Commercial Property team based in Portsmouth in 2015 after spending several years at another firm in the Residential Property team.  He started his Period of Recognised Training in 2017, spending the next 18 months working across a variety of departments including Private Client and Employment Litigation.  He returned to Commercial Property in September 2018 for his final seat and will now be taking a permanent position in the team. 

Speaking of his qualification, Joe commented, “I am thrilled to be qualifying into Warner Goodman’s Commercial Property team as it is an area I have particularly enjoyed working in over the last few years. It is a long road to qualification and I have particularly enjoyed training at Warner Goodman, so it’s a proud moment for me to have secured a qualified position in such an established, progressive and well principled firm. I am looking forward to the coming years as I develop further and continue to help businesses meet their objectives, whether they are property developers, investors looking to manage their portfolio or local trade businesses looking for a new premises to work from.”

Dan Thompson, Trainee Partner, also commented, “We are extremely proud of our Trainee Solicitor programme here; several of our current Partners began their career as a Trainee Solicitor so it is always rewarding when we can continue to offer opportunities to our Trainees once they qualify.  Joe has been an important part of our Commercial Property team for many years now; he has a very promising career ahead of him, and I am delighted that Warner Goodman will be a part of that.”
