Qualification Congratulations!

Woodfines is delighted to announce that Thomas Hale, one of their current crop of second year trainees has now qualified as a solicitor, and will be augmenting the existing Private Client team in their Cambridge office.

Commenting on this, Tim Addinell, who heads up the Private Client team said: “We are delighted to be joined by Tom in our team in Cambridge. In the unique challenges of the last 18 months, he has shown himself to be diligent and focussed, and those attributes will stand him in good stead for the future as well. The team as a whole is growing across all of our offices, and Tom can now help us continue that”.

When told of Tim’s comments, Tom responded “The qualification route has been even more demanding than usual because of the additional problems created by the Covid pandemic. I am delighted to be joining the team, and look forward to contributing to the growth Tim describes. I am grateful too for the support that Woodfines has shown throughout my training contract, as well as for the guidance and encouragement given, not just by the Private Client team, but by the Family and Conveyancing teams in which I have also been based”.

The firm’s Trainees are overseen by Partner, Mike Hayward who commented as follows: “Woodfines prides itself on providing a strong training platform for our aspiring lawyers. We are delighted to announce that Tom Hale has successfully completed his 2 year training contract with us and qualifies today as a Solicitor in our Private Client team.

Our Trainees have faced unprecedented challenges over the last 2 years with the Covid restrictions and they, together with their training teams, colleagues and mentors are to be commended.”








Mike met with Tom at our Cambridge office today to personally congratulate him on being officially admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in England and Wales.

Congratulations to Tom from the whole team at Woodfines!
