Testimonials 

Howard Bailey, Solicitor

I joined the commercial property team at Spire Solicitors LLP at the beginning of 2018. I am so happy I made the move. It is a great place to work and I have already been involved in some fantastic deals. I enjoy the culture of the firm and the Attleborough office in particular. I feel confident that if I have any questions, concerns or suggestions that I will be listened to and that the firm will work with me to progress or resolve as appropriate.

Katharine Chatters, Solicitor

I started working for Spire in February 2018 so I am still considered the ‘newbie’ in the office and finding my feet.  I work within the social housing department and I have been made to feel very welcome by all members of the team which helped me to feel settled and comfortable early on. I have been lucky enough to share an office with a very experienced partner of the firm who has a vast amount of knowledge in the social housing sector. Being able to learn from him has increased my knowledge no end and I continue to progress my personal development daily.

What I particularly liked when joining Spire was the support and training I received before being given a caseload. I was given the opportunity to learn the system and feel comfortable before being left to my own devices. What I also find great about Spire is the encouragement from the learning and development team to continually develop your skills and knowledge. They offer a whole host of resources to help you train and keep up to date with changes in all areas of the law. This is very important to me as a newly qualified solicitor as I feel it is necessary to continuing building on the foundations that a training contract provides.

In addition to the enjoyable working environment, I have thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to get involved in the numerous networking and social events that Spire offers. The events provide a great platform to network with like-minded professionals throughout the local area and are a great opportunity to get to know and have fun with colleagues.

Kristian Tangen-Sorgendal, Marketing Manager

After joining Spire Solicitors LLP in September 2017, I still sit comfortably with my decision to join the firm in an avenue away from Fee Earner status; I currently hold the Marketing Manager position for the firm.

Compared to other companies I’ve worked for in the past, I can say Spire has been the best pick of my career due to the level of dedication and enthusiasm the firm has as a whole to develop and mentor all staff across all areas of the business.

I look forward to continuing my career with Spire Solicitors LLP, as well as progressing further with the full support of everyone at the firm who have a shared and forward thinking vision.
