Lakmal Walawage qualifies as a Solicitor

Congratulations, Lakmal!

Virtuoso Legal are delighted to announce that trainee Lakmal Walawage is fully qualified as a solicitor.

Lakmal first joined VL at the beginning of 2015, as a work experience student. Later that year he was asked to return as a paralegal. He has since risen through the ranks at the firm – assisting our clients with distinction across both contentious and non-contentious matters.

Virtuoso Legal are delighted to have supported Lakmal during his training; and have benefited from his burgeoning expertise as an intellectual property specialist.

Lakmal had this to say about his qualification:

I’m grateful to Virtuoso Legal for having providing me with the opportunity to get such an in-depth and hands-on training experience throughout my time here. I’ve never shied away from responsibility and the firm has never shied away from giving me responsibility. It’s meant a lot for my professional development and I now feel that I’ve arrived at a stage where I’ve progressed to the next level and take on things that I’ve been gearing myself to take on for the past 6 or so years.”

Head of IP Protect and London Head, Philip Partington, said:

Lakmal is an incredible asset to Virtuoso Legal. Time and time again he has come through for our clients and proven his willingness to go the extra mile. Most importantly, he shows an incredible duty of care; going out of his way to let clients know what’s the best course of action is for them (even if they’re convinced otherwise!) – which is at the heart of what we do here at VL.”

Head of IP Grow and Virtuoso Vice-Principal, Kirsten Toft, said:

We’re all very proud of Lakmal, who now joins the ranks of qualified solicitors. Over the course of having him work at Virtuoso Legal, it’s become clear that he will make an absolutely fantastic intellectual property lawyer. We can’t wait to see what he continues to achieve, both personally, as well as for our clients.

Finally, Principal Liz Ward, stated:

I’m highly delighted to welcome Lakmal as a fully qualified solicitor to Virtuoso legal. He’s been an excellent trainee and I know he’s going to make a superb lawyer.”
