Williamsons bolsters property and conveyancing teams

Williamsons Solicitors has boosted its property and conveyancing departments with two new appointments.

Carey Robinson, who is the next president of Scarborough Law Society, has joined the firm in Driffield, while Rachael McClean will be based in the Hull office, after moving from Liverpool.

Robinson specialises in commercial and residential law and has gained experience with other firms in the Hull-York region.

This follows a degree in law and criminology from Sheffield University and being commended on her legal practice course in York.

“Property sales and purchases can be very stressful and my aim is to make what can be a difficult process as simple and stress-free as possible,” Robinson said.

McClean specialises in all aspects of residential conveyancing, including sales, purchases, remortgages and transfers of equity.

After gaining an LLB (Hons) degree from Liverpool John Moores University, she took a break from her law studies to help students with learning difficulties at the city’s Hugh Baird College and holds additional qualifications, including mental health first aid and learning support.

“I continued to work for the college part-time after returning to university for my legal practice certificate,” McClean said. “It was most definitely a valuable life experience.”

McClean, previously with Liverpool practice Morecrofts, added: “I’ve been made to feel very welcome in Hull, but I regularly go back Merseyside to see family and of course to watch Everton FC.”

Bill Waddington, director of Williamsons, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Carey and Rachael into our expanding property and conveyancing departments. They both bring with them great experience and expertise and will both boost the strength of the services we can offer.”

Williamsons also has property and conveyancing solicitors based in its Beverley and Bridlington branches.
