Bennett Griffin trainee completes training

The partners are delighted to announce that Jo Ostrom has successfully completed her training contract with Bennett Griffin and was admitted a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales on 15 October 2007.

Jo gained an LL.B (Hons) at the University of the Swansea, before undertaking her legal practice course at College of Law, Guildford which she completed with a distinction.  Jo joined Bennett Griffin in October 2005 and has undertaken training seats in probate, family, conveyancing and commercial property and will now join Bennett Griffin’s Private Client Department. In her spare time Jo enjoys salsa dancing and has recently started golf lessons.  She also has a yellow belt in self-defence.

Ian Macara, Partner in the Private Client department, said “As a trainee, Jo very quickly established herself as a real asset to our Private Client team. She is bright, engaging and has an eye for detail – skills that all of us here at Bennett Griffin are encouraged to develop and apply to our work. Now that she has qualified and returned to our Private Client team her undoubted skills will enable us to continue to increase the specialist, timely and proactive advice and support that we provide to our Private clients. After devoting 7 years to training to become a solicitor we all wish her every success for her long career here with us at Bennett Griffin.”
