Leading North West law firm Napthens has strengthened its core practices with the addition of 17 new staff in the first quarter of 2021.
This includes two additions to the Litigation team, with the recruitment of senior associate solicitor Charlotte Barron and solicitor Jordan Davies. Specialising in all types of commercial dispute resolution (including property) for SME owner-managed businesses, Charlotte adds 15 years’ experience to the team, having acted for international clients from the USA, China, Italy and Australia in previous roles. Jordan is a specialist in inheritance disputes and joins a growing contentious trusts and probate team that handle a variety of cases, from challenging the validity of a will to mismanagement of Estates by personal representatives.
Andy Ellis, a Health & Safety consultant and specialist in construction has joined Napthens Health and Safety. With more than ten years’ experience working across house building, civil engineering, mechanical and electrical installation, Andy has advised at board and senior management level on projects ranging from £100k up to £25m in value. He joins a growing team of consultants that provide a full health and safety service including audits, site visits, training and consultation.
Beyond Litigation and Health & Safety, Napthens has made a further eight additions to its Commercial Property, Rural, Private Client, Employment and Corporate practices, whilst also adding to its business services teams.
Shru Morris, CEO at Napthens, said: “In what has been a challenging 12 months for everyone, we have continued to support clients’ needs across our commercial and private client services.
“As we look to develop further specialisms and build on our expertise across the board and our recruitment reflects our commitment to providing the greatest service possible for each and every one of our clients. As the region looks to bounce back following the pandemic, we will continue to expand our service offering and will be announcing further new arrivals in the coming weeks.”
