Wake Smith boosts team with seven appointments

Sheffield’s Wake Smith Solicitors made seven new additions across the firm as it enacts its growth plans.

The law firm has recruited across the board in its private client, litigation, employment, clinical negligence departments, and taken on two trainees and essential support staff. 

Wake Smith is also actively recruiting for its company commercial, commercial property and clinical negligence teams.

Private client associate solicitor Annie Wright brings more than 15 years of experience of working in a busy Sheffield law firm to Wake Smith, while employment solicitor Robyn Jackson has joined from a Nottingham firm to build on a wealth of experience gained before, and during, her training contract.

Newly qualified litigation solicitor Sophie Kerry brings her experience of working in paralegal roles since 2017 and joins the firm following completion of her training contract.

Trainee solicitor Joseph Creasor spent more than three years as a legal adviser at a Sheffield law firm and joins Wake Smith with his first seat in the busy commercial property team.

Trainee solicitor Jessica Haynes, meanwhile, is nearly two months into her training contract, starting in the firm’s popular conveyancing team.

New appointments on the support side include private client department secretary Helen Broadhead, who has more than 25 years of experience as a legal secretary and has worked in private client teams since 2005.

Elizabeth Carnall also joins as a float legal secretary, bringing nearly 20 years in the role, providing integral and flexible secretarial support to the busy departments.
