Solicitor and paralegal join Myton Law

Amy Jackson and Jessica Mackenzie have joined Myton Law, the Hull-based specialist shipping, rail and logistics law firm.

Jackson is a solicitor with extensive property experience. She worked in the commercial property team of another Hull firm for nearly 10 years. Prior to qualifying as a lawyer in 2006, she studied at the University of Hull and York College of Law.

Commenting on her decision to join the firm, Jackson said: “Myton Law’s shipping, rail and logistics specialisms, for which they have strong national and even international reputations, and the quality of their clients impressed me, as did their modern, progressive way of working.”

Mackenzie is a paralegal and will support the Myton Law team in general, but with a focus on commercial and property work for logistics and rail clients.

Prior to studying for a law degree at the University of Hull and for her legal practice course qualification and a master’s in law at Nottingham Trent University, Mackenzie ran her own business and had worked for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s property team.

“The fact that Myton Law is a niche practice makes them stand out from other Hull firms,” Mackenzie said. “I was very pleased to be offered the opportunity to be involved in such interesting and specialist work.”

Welcoming the new recruits to Myton Law, director Chris Thornes said: “We are very pleased to have Amy and Jessica on board. Their appointments support our expanding business practice and, in particular, our commercial and property work for logistics and rail sector clients.”
