Davis Blank Furniss is further building its core team after appointing Carlyn Weale to its Dispute Resolution department. Carlyn has joined as a solicitor advocate (Higher Courts Civil Proceedings).

Being a qualified solicitor advocate in civil proceedings enables Carlyn to represent clients in the higher courts in England & Wales. Carlyn is also studying towards a Masters degree in Advocacy at the University of Strathclyde which she is due to complete this September.

Carlyn’s specialisms are in commercial litigation and in advocacy so her new role will see her manage a number of fast-track and multi-track disputes, including; breach of contract claims, shareholders disputes, professional negligence and debt claims. She will be working closely with Andrew Ryan, partner.

Carlyn qualified in 2008 after completing her training at Rowlands Solicitors LLP in Manchester. She joined Davis Blank Furniss from Turner Parkinson LLP where she built up her experience of dealing with various types of work including complex shareholders disputes and breach of contract claims.

Kate Oldfield, managing partner, commented: “Dispute resolution is a growing and buoyant part of our offering so Carlyn’s joining is great news and comes at an exciting time for the department.  She is a hugely talented solicitor advocate and her skill set is a real asset to the firm and our clients.”

Carlyn added: “I’ve long respected Davis Blank Furniss so I’m delighted to now be part of the team. My colleagues in the Dispute Resolution department are a talented group of lawyers and my focus is now on building our profile and adding value to our clients.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
