Leading Yorkshire law firm Rollits has expanded its employment law team to five, with the appointment of newly qualified solicitor Nilu Love.
With offices in Hull and York, Rollits is a commercial law firm with specialist private client capabilities. The appointment of Nilu means that it now has the largest team of qualified employment lawyers in East Yorkshire, with over 40 years’ experience between them.
Recently the team was ranked in the top tier for employment law in Hull and East Yorkshire in the Legal 500 2018 and also as a top firm in Yorkshire in the latest edition of Chambers UK.
Nilu joined Rollits in September 2017 as a Trainee Solicitor. She gained a Law LLB Honours degree from The University of Hull and was a former President of the Student Law Society. Later this month, she will qualify and join the award-winning firm as a Solicitor.
Prior to joining Rollits, Nilu gained experience dealing with matters of charity governance, employment, recruitment and IP in the in-house legal and finances team at Vineyard Churches, as the trustees coordinator for this national charity. She also worked as a Hull Citizens Advice advisor.
During her Period of Recognised Training, Nilu gained experience in different areas of law, spending time with teams across the firm, before choosing employment law as her specialist area of practice.
Nilu said: “The quality of the training I have received at Rollits has been outstanding, I’ve learned so much during my time here from colleagues’ right at the forefront of their specialist fields. I am really looking forward to building my career at Rollits – it is such a positive and forward-thinking firm, with exceptionally high standards and the team’s attitude towards client needs is second to none.”
Ed Jenneson, Head of the employment team at Rollits, said: “When we interviewed Nilu for a role as a trainee solicitor at Rollits she impressed us right from the start. Nilu performed exceptionally well as a trainee and we are delighted to bring her into our team. We strive to recruit the right people from the start in the hope they will enjoy a long and rewarding career with us.
“We value commercial awareness and the ability to demonstrate commitment to the firm and the region. We consider that trainee solicitors are the future of our firm, proven by how many partners and senior lawyers trained at Rollits. We are looking for people with the right attitude and who are motivated and enthusiastic about a career in the law. Above all, they must have integrity and be a team player. Nilu has all of these qualities and will be a great asset to the firm and our clients.”
Highly regarded as a commercial practice, Rollits works with a range of businesses from major PLCs, education providers, private companies and substantial charitable organisations and institutions.
