Introducing our Trainee Solicitors

/ 08 October 2020

We are pleased to introduce our trainee solicitors Eleni Nicolaou, Myles Shearman and Ewelina Strug


Eleni is currently working with our Disputes team, Myles our Real Estate team and Ewelina our Business and Finance team.


In the time between our offer of a training contract and joining us Eleni, Myles and Ewelina have been keeping in touch and getting involved with firmwide events and, as a result, they are already valuable team members.


Eleni said:

“I am delighted to join an extremely ambitious firm to undertake my training contract. I am excited to get hands-on experience on high-value, interesting work and to learn key skills from the different departments of the firm. In addition to the quality of work, the ‘lawyers you’ll enjoy working with’ approach was a huge factor that drew me to Greenwoods GRM. I am so pleased to be part of the team.”

Eleni is working alongside experienced team members on a range of matters for clients and has also prepared articles on interesting cases hitting the headlines.  



Myles said:

“Researching the firm and speaking to staff at the trainee assessment days really gave me the impression that Greenwoods GRM is a firm full of great people who are passionate about the work they do. Along with its excellent reputation and opportunities for progression, this really attracted me to the firm.”

 When talking about what he is excited about he said: “I’m most looking forward to being involved in some of the great work and clients Greenwoods GRM has to offer in addition to participating in Greenwoods GRM’s active social and charity committees.”



Ewelina joined the 2019 Greenwoods GRM Charity Challenge team which included climbing Snowden, a great way to get to know future colleagues! Ewelina said:

When it was time to find a training contract, it was important for me to find one at a firm which promoted diversity and Greenwoods GRM was the firm I wanted to join. It is a “top 200” law firm in the UK, has an office local to me and training and professional development is at its core. What also drew me to the firm was its reputation for empowering colleagues in their roles – many of our Partners and our Managing Partner began their legal careers at Greenwoods GRM as Trainees. A testament to the unique culture of the firm and is why I can see myself here in 20 years’ time. I am excited about participating in the firm’s social and charity committees. Applying for a training contract can be a little bit daunting, but at Greenwoods GRM, everyone is always excited about new arrivals. Once I accepted my training contract, I was invited to the firm’s Summer Party, Christmas Party and the Charity Challenge which involved climbing Snowdon, so by the time I joined the firm in 2020 I already knew many of my colleagues. Greenwoods GRM is a brilliant firm to work for; I am proud to be part of the team. 


Greenwoods GRM is committed to developing talent. A number of current Partners have progressed from trainees or newly qualified solicitors including Managing Partner Robert Dillarstone: 


“It was a great journey from  Trainee to Greenwoods GRM Managing Partner.  One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is to see our trainees progress and develop their legal careers. In Myles, Eleni and Ewelina, I feel certain we have great future lawyers.” 


If you are looking for a training contract, please be aware that we are not currently offering training contracts beginning in 2021 or 2022. Please keep checking our website careers pages and our and social media channels for more updates, particularly our trainee Instagram account.
