North Yorkshire Law has expanded its Scarborough and Whitby practices with two new local appointments.
Laura Young has joined North Yorkshire Law in Scarborough as a records and administration assistant. Hannah Dowling has arrived as a conveyancing assistant and is based in Whitby.
Young is also studying law at Coventry University and hopes to become a family lawyer at North Yorkshire Law. Dowling is studying law through The Open University and intends to advance to a master’s degree and qualification as a solicitor.
In 2017, North Yorkshire Law were awarded the Law Society’s practice management standard Lexcel, the quality mark for excellence in practice management and client care, for the eighth year running.
Richard Boyd, partner at North Yorkshire Law, said: “We are committed to providing our clients with the highest standards of service, consistently no matter what. The Law Society has accredited our hard work and progressing into 2018 we aim to commit to this accreditation through the expansion of our business.”
“This, alongside an increase in caseload are the main reasons why we welcome Laura and Hannah to the team.”
Boyd added: “In 2017 we saw case loads increase by 15% leading to an urgent need for more staff to assist.’’
Nikita Watson has also been promoted to commercial assistant in the conveyancing department after joining last year as a records assistant.
Boyd said: “We’re also incredibly pleased to see Nikita progress in-house. We have been developing our commercial conveyancing department and Natalie Foster required assistance with her increasing workload.”
