Coles welcome new Trainee Solicitor

Date: November 22, 2016

Coles Solicitors are extremely pleased to be welcoming a new trainee solicitor called Andrew Raof to their talented Commercial Property team.

Andrew graduated from the University of Surrey with an LLB in English Law with French Law, following which he graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an LLM. He completed the Legal Practice Course at BPP University in Leeds.

Andrew joins us from Plexus Law in Leeds, where he handled his own caseload of pre-litigated and litigated subrogated recovery claims for properties on behalf of well-known insurer clients, which ranged small claims to multi-track. With contentious commercial experience, Andrew brings with him experience in various legal areas including consumer legislation, new-build properties, contract and professional negligence, and water industry legislation.

Peter Gibson, Managing Director and Solicitor at Coles Solicitors, said, “Supporting trainee solicitors is an integral part of our business ethos.  We are delighted to welcome Andrew to our team, and we hope that he will enjoy his training with us. “

Andrew said, “I am delighted to be undertaking my solicitor training at Coles Solicitors at a time when it is growing to become a leading legal market player in the North of England. I look forward being a part of the Firm’s growth, and meeting and providing sound legal services to its clients.”

Coles Solicitors are a friendly expert legal team, based in ten office locations throughout Yorkshire and Cleveland. The Firm offers a wide range of services but specialises in family law, commercial property, wills and probate, lasting powers of attorney, medical negligence, litigation and personal injury. Andrew will be working closely with Coles Solicitors’ Commercial Property specialist, Peter Flemming, and can be contacted via the Harrogate office on 01423 307 777.
