New trainee solicitor for McCormicks

McCormicks Solicitors of Harrogate has appointed a new trainee, Lucy Harbron.

Harbron (pictured) graduated from Newcastle University with a degree in history. She completed the graduate diploma in law and legal practice course at the University of Law in Leeds in June before joining McCormicks. 

She is assisting the head of family, Stephen Hopwood, in acting for a broad range of clients, dealing primarily with finance and children.

She also assists the criminal and private client departments with all aspects of their work as part of her training, but her long-term aim is to be a family lawyer. 

Harbron, who grew up in Hertfordshire, is a keen netball player and is vice-captain of the Harrogate Challengers, which plays across the district.

McCormicks managing partner Stephen Hopwood said: “Lucy is already proving a great asset to the team and I look forward to seeing her progress.”
