The Litigation and Dispute Resolution service at regional law firm Napthens has expanded with the appointment of two new recruits.
Solicitor Victoria Taylor has joined the firm to advise on a range of disputes, representing both commercial and individual clients. Victoria, who lives in the Ribble Valley, joins following time training at an East Lancashire law firm.
Meanwhile, her colleague Kirsty Halsted has been promoted into the department as a paralegal. A legal secretary with Napthens since 2013, Kirsty will now work closely with Stephen Crossley, solicitor and the registrar of the Diocese of Blackburn.
Both Victoria and Kirsty are based at Napthens’ East Lancashire office in Blackburn.
David Bailey, partner in the Litigation team, said: “We continue to see an increase in demand for our dispute resolution services, and these appointments help to ensure that clients continue to have access to the best possible service in the area.
“Victoria and Kirsty bring a variety of skills to the team and their appointments are not only a commitment to the firm’s litigation service, but also to the business community in East Lancashire.”
