Jamie Humpheson appointed local law society president

Eaton Smith Solicitors’ commercial property senior solicitor, Jamie Humpheson, has been appointed president of the Huddersfield and Dewsbury Incorporated Law Society.

The Huddersfield and Dewsbury Law Society has been representing people in the local legal space for more than 140 years. The society supports and provides services to its members, hosting regular networking and social events and providing pro bono legal services with their partner the Access to Justice Foundation.

Jamie is taking over from Ellie Hirst, associate solicitor at Chadwick Lawrence. Ellie served as vice-president for a year prior to taking on the role of president throughout 2023.

Jamie Humpheson commented, “I would like to thank Ellie Hirst of Chadwick Lawrence, our outgoing president, for all her hard work and dedication under her tenure. She will be a tough act to follow. I would also like to thank Matthew Dickerson for his proposal.

I am looking forward to working with the Huddersfield and Dewsbury legal communities this upcoming year. My congratulations also go out to Christopher Carney of Schofield Sweeney on his appointment as vice-president.”

Philip Clarke, partner at Eaton Smith Solicitors, commented, “We are extremely proud to see Jamie appointed president of the Huddersfield and Dewsbury Incorporated Law Society. We wish him all the best and can’t wait to support him in his new role.”
