Belfast-based MKB Law has welcomed Rachel McBrinn, Michael Murphy and Caitlin Mulholland as the firm’s trainee solicitors for 2023.

Ms McBrinn has worked with the firm as a paralegal since October 2022, shortly after she graduated from Queen’s University Belfast. She works in the employment law team alongside associate director Andrew Lightburn, and also assists in a range of family law matters.

Meanwhile, Mr Murphy and Ms Mulholland are new to the firm.

Mr Murphy moves to MKB Law from a busy high-street law practice where he had been working as a paralegal since graduating with a law degree in 2021. He joins the dispute resolution and litigation department under the guidance of director David McAlinden.

Ms Mulholland has previous experience working as a legal professional in the Belfast office of a global law firm. She graduated in 2021 having studied law with Spanish. She joins the private client and conveyancing team under the guidance of director Maria Conway.

The three trainees will undertake their practical in-office training until the end of 2023, before commencing their studies at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) in January 2024. All three will aim to qualify as solicitors in the autumn of 2025.

Gordon McElroy, managing director at MKB Law, said: “We are pleased to announce our trainees for 2023. Rachel is a valued member of our Employment team, and Michael and Caitlin joined us after attending our trainee open evening and deciding that we were the right firm for them. Each of them brings a unique set of skills and perspectives that will enhance our firm’s capabilities.

“At MKB Law, we take pride in nurturing legal talent and providing opportunities for growth and professional development. We are committed to providing them with the mentorship and opportunities they need to develop into outstanding solicitors.”
