Taylor Walton Solicitors planning for the future with new appointments

Leading regional law firm Taylor Walton has announced the appointment of two newly qualified solicitors, who both trained with the firm. Solicitor Tanveer Ranshi has joined the Commercial Real Estate team and Ulugbek Gomes-Pessoa has joined the firm’s Corporate & Commercial team.

Having qualified this year, both accepted roles with the firm in recognition of the quality of the training, supervision and mentoring they experienced throughout the qualification process, reflecting the collegial and supportive environment the firm strives to maintain.

Stephanie Simon, People & Talent Partner at Taylor Walton commented: “Recruitment is currently a significant challenge for the legal sector and makes the nurturing of the talent we have within the firm, more important than ever.

“We have developed an approach that not only helps identify and recruit the very best trainees but allows us to guide them as they seek the ideal environment in which to fulfil their potential. The rotation through teams, helps them find the area of law that excites them and the team that best suits their personality.

“Both Tanveer and Ulugbek are bright, committed individuals who demonstrate an innate passion for the law and the difference our work can make to our clients. It is gratifying that in their years with the firm, they have come to appreciate our inclusive and supportive culture.

“We work hard to help each trainee reach their full potential, providing the support and guidance they need to become indispensable members of their respective teams as they make their way in what we hope will be long legal careers here at Taylor Walton.”

Newly qualified solicitor Tanveer Ranshi said: “Being a trainee has its challenges, with so much to learn from so many people and on top of that adapting to the changing working conditions brought about by the pandemic, makes the outcome even more satisfying.

“My qualification and acceptance of the role here at Taylor Walton stand testament to the effort they expended to help me through my training contract. I believe Taylor Walton is an ambitious law firm with a clear growth strategy that offers me the chance to grow my career.

Ulugbek added “I am pleased with the amount of help and support that I received from everyone here, at Taylor Walton, from the People & Talent team to the Trainee Supervising Partners. Not only did it improve the journey and experience of my training contract but we also had some fun along the way too, which is important.”
