Regional law firm Napthens has continued to expand its Merseyside presence with the appointment of Lorna Rigby as a Senior Associate to its Liverpool office.
Lorna returns to her home city from a role with Manchester-based Kuits. The experienced employment solicitor previously trained in Liverpool with DWF where she worked for nearly a decade.
At Napthens she will advise businesses on employment issues, from recruitment through to restructures and redundancies, in particular through Napthens’ employment law retainer service, HR3. Her experience includes working with clients across industry sectors including leisure, retail, manufacturing and education.
Lorna is the latest recruit to join the Liverpool office, which opened earlier this year, following the recent appointment of Daniel Rawcliffe, also an employment solicitor.
She is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and is recommended by the legal industry ‘bible’ Legal 500.
Gareth McIntegart, head of Napthens’ Liverpool office, said: “Having previously worked together earlier in our careers, I am delighted that Lorna has decided to join us.
“Lorna’s appointment is a tangible sign of Napthens’ commitment to the city’s business community, and as demand for our services increases, we will continue to grow our team and our service offering.
“Napthens has received a very warm welcome in Liverpool and I’m looking forward to working with existing and new clients and the wider business community as we build our reputation across the city region.”
