East Midlands law firm expands Criminal Defence and Family Law teams
East Midlands law firm Bhatia Best has expanded its Criminal Defence and Family Law teams with two new appointments, including a training contract awarded to Frank Sheeran, who passed his Police Station Accreditation Assessments in 2018 and won the Best New Caseworker award at the Bhatia Best Christmas Awards 2018.
Sheeran is now a Police Station Representative based at Bhatia Best’s Nottingham Office – and will officially become a trainee solicitor on 1 April.
The firm said that, during his period of training, he would continue to “expertly represent” clients at the police station, as well as undertaking caseworker matters at the Crown Court and assisting with preparation for Magistrates Court matters.
Bhatia Best has also added to its Family Law team, with the appointment of solicitor Babalola Adegunsoye, based in the firm’s Family and Child Law department in Nottingham, and specialising in care proceedings and private children law matters.
Known as Babs, Adegunsoye studied for his law degree at the London Metropolitan University – and completed his Legal Practice Course at the University of Westminster’s Law School.
He then went on to work in a multi-disciplinary high street law firm, initially as a caseworker before completing his Training Contract and qualifying as a Solicitor.
He has been working in private Family Law since 2008, but also has experience in other areas of law, including Immigration as well as Civil Litigation.
“I joined Bhatia Best because of their reputation as an excellent law firm, filled with professionals who are passionate about what they do,” he said.
“I hope to tap into the great resources and expertise available in this great firm – it is a firm imbibed with excellent tradition and I hope to further my career here.”
