Trio of promotions at Cullimore Dutton

Continuing our long track record of investing in tomorrow’s legal professionals, we are delighted to announce the promotion of three colleagues as they make progress in their legal careers.

Property Litigation paralegal Isabella Martindale has been awarded a training contract and will take up the position of trainee solicitor. Isabella joined our litigation team in November 2021 as a legal assistant and was promoted to the role of paralegal in August 2022.

Isabella, who graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2020 with a first-class law degree before completing both her Legal Practice Course (LPC) alongside a Masters in Business Law at the University of Law in Liverpool in 2022 said: “I am so pleased to be awarded a training contract here at Cullimore Dutton, qualifying as a solicitor has been my career goal since high school and to now be in the latter stages of that process is very exciting. I know I have two intensive years of combining both my studies with my new role, but I also know the team here have a great track record of supporting trainees through the process of qualification.”

Chloe Halpin, who originally joined our Litigation team in September 2021 as a Legal Assistant before moving to our Family Law team, has been promoted to the role of Paralegal. Chloe who graduated from the University of Law in Chester with a first-class law degree in 2019 stated: “I am delighted to be starting my new role as a Paralegal. This is a great step in my legal career, and I appreciate the opportunity to continue to grow, develop and learn with our fantastic team.”

Meanwhile in our property team, Ethan Cartwright who joined us in February 2022 as a legal assistant has also been promoted to the role of paralegal within the residential conveyancing team. Ethan who graduated with a first-class Law degree from the University of Law in Leeds in 2021 said: “I am really happy to be awarded this promotion and to continue my career progression with Cullimore Dutton. I have already learnt so much since I joined the team, and I am confident that in my new role this will only continue.”

Alongside his new role Ethan will be undertaking the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE), an 18-month programme of study which will support his long-term goal of qualifying as a solicitor.

Managing Director Andrew Wright added: “We are pleased to be able to reward these three great colleagues with these promotions. I know all three deserve this opportunity to progress in their careers and that they will all relish the new challenges their new roles will bring. I have every confidence that all three will be very successful and I know the rest of our team will continue to support them.”

All three promotions are active with immediate effect.

We would like to wish all three colleagues every success as they begin this new chapter of their careers, and to offer our continuing support throughout their training and beyond.

Good luck all.
The Cullimore Dutton team
