Law firm Bell Lamb & Joynson Solicitors has welcomed five new recruits to its Merseyside and Cheshire operations.
It has created a number of new roles to support growing business, which has seen the team enjoy a 5% increase in turnover in the last 12 months despite the ongoing crisis with COVID-19.
With offices in Liverpool, Warrington and Runcorn, the team now includes 50 members of staff across departments such as conveyancing, family law and criminal law to name a few. As part of the recent recruitment drive, the firm will also add to its development strategy with new dedicated roles to manage business and client relationships.
The firm has welcomed Lawrence Dunne as a conveyancing assistant and Jenny Randell as a conveyancing fee earner, alongside accounts cashier Tim Cousins. The newly established business development team will be headed up by relationship manager Joe Holmes who will be working alongside client relationship executive Kate Mansfield.
Managing partner at Bell Lamb & Joynson, Mike Leeman, said: “As we entered our new business and financial year in July, we also welcomed a number of new recruits to the firm, adding to our workforce across our three North West office locations.
“We feel incredibly fortunate that we’re in a position to expand and futureproof our business for the year ahead and beyond. As well as hiring in our conveyancing department, which has been exceptionally busy throughout recent months, and our finance team, we’ve also prioritised business development.
“As we near our 200-year anniversary in 2021, it’s important to us to continue to build on the momentum that we’ve initiated over recent years and continue to make a name for ourselves across England and Wales.”
