Rollits welcomes new trainees and revives work experience programme

23rd Mar

Two University of Hull graduates whose legal learning included work experience spells with Rollits LLP have now joined the firm as trainee solicitors.

Rollits, which has offices in Hull and York, has welcomed Zaneta Andraszczyk to its private capital department, with Jordan Collinson beginning his career in the firm’s property department.

Both new recruits are from Hull. Zaneta, who speaks Polish and Armenian in addition to English, attended St Mary’s College and studied at the University of Hull from 2015 until 2018 for her LLB, which she followed with a Legal Practice course with a Masters at the University of Law in Leeds.

Jordan attended Archbishop Sentamu Academy and Wyke Sixth Form College. He gained his LLB in Law and European Legal Studies with First Class Honours at the University of Hull in 2019 after a four-year course that included a year at Bayreuth Universität in Germany. He also attended the University of Law in Leeds and gained a distinction in the Legal Practice Course with the integrated LLM in Professional Practice.

Ralph Gilbert, managing partner at Rollits, said: “As we celebrate our 180th year in business this year it is particularly pleasing to welcome two trainee solicitors who have grown up and went to school in the city and, in common with many of their colleagues, come through the University of Hull.

“Their arrival also underlines the importance of our in-house work experience programme, which played a big part in helping us get to know each other. After last year when we were only able to offer work experience in a virtual format, we hope to bring prospective lawyers into our offices again this year and we look forward to giving more young people essential insight into a career in law.”
