First Apprentice for McCormicks Solicitors
Harrogate law firm McCormicks Solicitors has appointed its first Graduate Solicitor Apprentice.
Sophie Hussain joins the practice’s growing Commercial Property team, working with Claire Baker-Kemp, Janice Colley and Katy Maskell-Edwards on all aspects of transactional property work.
Head of the Commercial Property team Claire Baker-Kemp said: “Sophie has come to us with more than two years’ solid commercial property experience, which makes her appointment a real benefit to our clients. I am also very impressed by Sophie in the short time she has been here.”
Consultant Solicitor Janice Colley added: “Sophie is a brilliant appointment for McCormicks. She is one of the best trainees I have ever worked with. She will be a great asset to the Property Team.”
Sophie graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2020 with a first-class dual honours degree in Law and Criminology. She joined a private practice as a paralegal, assisting with the daily management of both contentious and non-contentious commercial matters.
Her experience includes assisting with commercial lease transactions for clients in the hospitality industry.
Sophie will continue to study alongside her work and is due to qualify as a Solicitor in August 2026.
