SSB Law expands with three appointments

Dispute resolution law firm SSB Law is continuing its recruitment drive with the appointment of three solicitors. 

The Sheffield-based firm, part of SSB Group, has hired Lucy Flynn, David Toyn and Tariq Khan to further expand its expertise in specialist litigation areas. 

The latest round of appointments at SSB Law follows on from a year of growth during 2020, when the firm created more than 100 roles across several departments, including accounts, HR and cavity wall claims. 

Solicitors Flynn and Toyn both join as commercial litigation managers. Flynn will lead and develop the firm’s Japanese Knotweed department. She joins SSB Law from Graysons, where she worked for 13 years, most recently as a partner in the personal injury team. 

Toyn will focus on expanding the firm’s commercial litigation services, leading the team dealing with mis-sold investment schemes.

He arrives from Nottingham-based Thompsons Solicitors and has previously held positions at Unionline and Graysons.

Khan joins as a solicitor specialising in General Data Protection Regulation and will establish a new data breach department.

He also has more than 18 years of experience across occupational disease litigation and false imprisonment claims, previously working at Burton and Burton in Nottingham. 

Founded in 2007, SSB Group now employs more than 150 people in Sheffield across its divisions, SSB Law, SSB Financial and SSB Compliance. 

Jeremy Brooke, co-founder and chief executive officer of SSB Law, said: “I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to Lucy, David and Tariq who each bring with them a wealth of expertise in their specialist areas. I wish them every success in their career at SSB Law.”

“They join at an exciting period of investment at SSB Law as we continue to grow in order to provide the very best, accessible legal litigation services for our clients.”

Brooke added: “SSB Group is one of the largest employers in Sheffield and I am proud to be continuing our recruitment drive during these challenging times. This builds upon a strong 2020, when we identified substantial business needs to expand our teams. We continue to be committed to local recruitment during 2021.”
