Commenting on the appointments, team leader Julie Jewers said “We’re thrilled to have appointed three lawyers of such high calibre. Each has a proven track record of proactively caring for clients and crafting legal solutions which make a real difference to the lives of those they support.”

“Their mix of expertise will blend with knowledge and experience already within the team and adding further resilience to the rounded service we offer to clients.”
