Innovative partnership between law firm and Barristers Chambers

Catherine Dent is celebrating the completion of her pupillage and becoming the first In-House Barrister at Wilmslow industrial disease specialists, Roberts Jackson.

Innovative partnership between law firm and Barristers Chambers

The firm launched the pupillage in October 2015 in partnership with leading Barristers’ Chambers, St John’s Buildings.  Roberts Jackson has a reputation for innovation and this step was the brainchild of CEO Karen Jackson.  Explaining the reasons behind it, she said:

“At Roberts Jackson our priority is obtaining justice for people who have become ill as a consequence of industrial disease.  Following Catherine’s experience at one of the leading Chambers in the UK, she brings a new and valuable skillset to our specialist industrial disease solicitors.  Having In-House Counsel will allow for speedy communication and early preparation in cases, which is a great benefit to our clients.  The pupillage is the latest in a series of new roles aimed at making the most of the multitude of abilities within the firm.    We offer a wide variety of roles to suit everyone’s talents and this is just another route employees can take.”

Catherine’s pupil supervisor for the 12-month qualification period was St John’s Building’s Barrister, Philip Grundy. The first six months of the course saw her assisting Mr Grundy and undertaking work on his behalf whist in the last 6 months Cat was delighted to have been taken on her own work whilst being supervised by Mr Grundy.
