Welcome to Our New Trainee

Elayne Clarke

Gillian has recently completed the demanding Legal Practice Course, achieving an impressive 70% in her final exams.

Gillian comes to the legal profession following fifteen years of direct marketing experience with large international brands including Fat Face and Airmiles. Gillian changed careers following a move to Devon, because she was looking for a more intellectually challenging profession. 

Gillian says, "I am very excited to have accepted a trainee solicitor position, where I can put my previous experience to good use. Samuels is a prestigious niche litigation practice, which is the area I eventually wish to specialise in, and I am very much looking forward to working alongside the dispute resolution experts at Samuels."

Judith Thompson, partner at Samuels, says "We are very pleased that Gillian has joined Samuels. Her wealth of client-focused commercial experience and her excellent academic background will make her a real asset to the firm".
