Frettens welcome first trainee of 2021
We are excited to announce the addition of a new trainee solicitor to the firm.
Olivia received her Law Degree at Bournemouth University, going on to work as a Paralegal in Sheffield whilst completing her Legal Practice Course.
More recently, she has worked as a Civil Litigation Paralegal in London; specifically within Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence. This was until she decided to make the move back to Bournemouth.
Matt Fretten on Olivia
“As the Firm continues to expand across all departments the continued investment in the next generation of lawyers becomes increasingly important.
We are delighted to welcome trainee solicitor Olivia Parkinson to the team as she starts her journey to qualifying as a solicitor."

Everyone has been so kind and welcoming, and I can already tell that it is a lovely place to work. I am very excited for my future here."
