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.
We’re pleased to announce that the last couple of months has seen expansions and a promotion in two of our key teams including the appointments of Jennifer Smith to our Property department and Kirsty Morbey to our Family team.
Jennifer joined our Manchester office from North Ainley Solicitors in January as an assistant solicitor. Her new role sees her working on both commercial and residential clients and she is directly reporting into Richard Hamilton – partner. Jennifer graduated from the University of Manchester with a BA Government and Law in 2003 and she completed her LPC at Manchester Metropolitan University. She has also previously worked at Horwich Cohen Coghlan (formerly Rowe Cohen).
Whilst over in Glossop, Emma Little has been promoted to paralegal. Emma, who has worked at Davis Blank Furniss for 16 years, has held various positions across the firm and she is now working closely with Martyn Gee – partner – and Susan Bann – partner – on all their conveyancing matters; from initial instruction to completion.
Our final piece of ‘People News’ is the appointment of Kirsty and she is now a part-time assistant solicitor in the Family Department of our Glossop office. Kirsty has joined us from Slater & Gordon where she worked for the last three years. Prior to that, she worked at Gorvins and also at Rowlands. Kirsty completed the LPC at the College of Law Chester in 1998 and graduated from Manchester University with a LL.B. Law Degree in 1997. She also qualified as a Collaborative Lawyer in 2006 so will be working alongside Anita Shepherd in HOTpod.
Kate Oldfield – managing partner – said: “As a firm, we know our business is based on the skills and talent of our people. These two latest appointments – along with Emma’s promotion – are testament to the importance and value we place on growing the right team. We’re delighted to still be increasing our headcount and I’m pleased to say both our new starters are already making their mark.”
