3volution appoints five new recruits

Leeds-based boutique law firm 3volution has recruited five new members of staff.

The firm, which now employs 23 people, has hired partner Michael Cantwell, solicitors Chris Thornton and Catherine Pugh, and trainee solicitors Melissa Poulter, Saman Ul-Haq and Philippa Webster.

Commenting on the recent appointments, 3volution founding partner Jonathan Priestley said: “It’s an exciting time here at 3volution. When Louise Handley, Tim Stone and I set up the business in 2011, we intended to keep our focus firmly on providing the very best specialist legal services possible by playing to our particular strengths and letting the business develop organically. We didn’t want to be distracted by growth for growth’s sake.”

“Having worked hard to maintain this ethos we have gradually built up the business by working with a fantastic selection of clients and attracting some of the best legal talent in the region.”

“I’m delighted to say that all of our specialist teams—corporate, commercial litigation, employment, commercial, intellectual property and information technology—are flourishing.”
