Sheffield’s MD Law retains first trainee solicitor and adds to team

MD Law has retained newly qualified solicitor David Scott and taken on another two trainees.

David joined the Broomhall-based firm in August 2018 as the company’s first trainee solicitor and during his two year Training Contract gained experience in all of MD Law’s practice areas including insolvency, dispute resolution, construction and commercial transactions.

Now that David is a qualified solicitor, he will continue to strengthen the 11-strong team, working alongside colleagues including partners Matthew Dixon, Neil Kelly and Carl Jones with a focus on commercial work.

David, who became a father while training and qualified during the COVID-19 pandemic,  said: “I have been impressed by the great team here, it is a growing business with lots of potential and an expanding client base.”

Zara Ahmed (25) and Josh Stilgoe (25) join the firm as new trainees having both studied law at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University respectively.

Zara, who is currently working through her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Sheffield, said: “I liked the boutique feel of MD Law which has experts with an eye for detail in their specialist areas.”

Josh, who worked at MD Law as a placement student in the final year of his degree, added: “My placement allowed me to get to know the people and I was attracted by the style of work. The subject areas are challenging, but very rewarding.”

Founder and partner of MD Law Matthew Dixon said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have retained David. He is a dedicated individual and I have no doubt he will go on to have very successful career with us and contribute to the firm’s consistent delivery of high quality client service.

“We are also pleased to welcome Zara and Josh and wish them all the best with their training with MD Law.”

David Scott graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 and completed his LPC at the University of Sheffield.

After graduating David went on to work as a legal advisor at a large national law firm for over 2 years before returning to Sheffield Hallam University as a Legal Student Support Officer where he supported students and academic staff across all of the work-related learning modules in the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice at Sheffield Hallam University.
