Pierce Arnold LLB

Following schooling at St Thomas More RC School & Technology College and King Edward VI College in Nuneaton, and at North Warwickshire & Hinckley College, Pierce obtained a Law degree from De Montfort University. He then successfully completed the DMU Graduate Champions Scheme and was placed with a local firm in Leicester for an internship. After a successful internship, the firm offered Pierce a paralegal position with the view to a training contract. He was then awarded a training contract which ran alongside his further studies. Pierce completed the Legal Practice Course through the Leicester Institute of Legal Practice and then his Professional Skills Course through BPP whilst working continuously as a paralegal/trainee solicitor at the Leicester firm. He stayed for a short time following his qualification as a solicitor in 2018 and worked in the Midlands area for a short spell before personal reasons drew him to Yorkshire. From his training onwards he has specialised in wills, probate and general private client work and has already gained valuable experience. He has joined Drivers in April 2019 as an employed “assistant” solicitor working in wills, probate and general private client.
