Leading North West law firm, SAS Daniels LLP, is continuing on its 2014 growth curve with the retention of two newly qualified solicitors, Steven Percy and Caroline Fearns, after the pair successfully completed the firm’s two-year training programme.
SAS Daniels, which has offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton, was recently named as a finalist in the category for ‘Developing Young People’ at this year’s Stockport Business Awards, which recognised the firm for its commitment to supporting young people.
Steven, a Bollington resident and University of Leeds graduate who passed his Legal Practice Course with distinction at BPP Law School, spent a year working for DAC Beachcroft LLP as a paralegal before joining SAS Daniels’ training programme in 2012. Now part of the Real Estate team, Steven will focus on commercial landlord and tenant work, commercial property sales and acquisitions, refinancing and development work across the firm’s Stockport and Macclesfield locations.
Caroline, a University of Kent graduate from Macclesfield joined the firm, after working at Plexus Law as a paralegal in Manchester, in 2012 to start her training contract with SAS Daniels. Training with the Family, Litigation and Private Client teams, Caroline will now specialise in estate administration and trusts and will be based at the firm’s Stockport office.
Commenting on their qualifications, Senior Partner at SAS Daniels, said: “The firm is passionate about supporting young people in our community. Our training scheme ensures budding legal professionals complete the programme with solid career prospects.
“We are delighted to be retaining Steven and Caroline in their chosen teams and congratulate them on their completion of the training programme and becoming qualified solicitors.”
