Blacks retains three newly qualified solicitors

Blacks Solicitors has retained three of its newly qualified lawyers.

Amer Ali joined the firm as a licensed conveyancer in the Blacks Direct conveyancing team in 2015 before becoming a trainee solicitor.

Now that Ali is a qualified solicitor, he will continue to strengthen the conveyancing team, dealing with a range of services on sales, purchasing, freehold, leasehold and new builds. 

Annie Beaumont joined Blacks Solicitors in 2016 as a paralegal in the wills and probate team.

As a qualified solicitor in wills and probate, Beaumont, who won Trainee of the Year at the Yorkshire Legal Awards last year, will advise clients on inheritance tax, business property relief and asset protection, alongside handling estate administration.

Finally, Fiona Barber joined the firm as a paralegal in the family team in 2017.

Recently qualifying into the commercial dispute resolution team, Barber will deal with contractual, civil and commercial disputes, professional negligence, and intellectual property.

Tom Moyes, training partner at Blacks, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have retained Annie, Fiona and Amer. They are all very bright individuals who are dedicated and demonstrably committed to the future vision of the firm. I have no doubt that they will all go on to have very successful careers with us and contribute to the firm’s consistent delivery of high quality client service within their respective teams.”
