Year of growth for North Yorkshire Law

North Yorkshire Law has begun 2019 with heightened optimism following a year in which the firm made significant appointments and opened an office in York.

Founded in 2000, North Yorkshire Law provides legal advice and assistance for the people of the towns and countryside of Yorkshire, advising on probate, conveyancing and civil litigation matters.

With offices in Scarborough and Whitby, the firm has seen an increase in staff numbers, promotions and a new office opening in York following the increased workload that it experienced in 2017 and 2018.

New appointments in the firm’s Whitby office included Jaime Dodd as solicitor, Elaine Greener in the reception team and Nicola Hill beginning her training in the conveyancing team. This January also saw the appointment of Carrie Grant to the Scarborough office where she will be assisting the conveyancing team.

Training contracts have also been awarded to Emma Silkstone and Hannah Dowling, as North Yorkshire Law continues to support and develop talented individuals within the firm.

Richard Boyd (pictured), managing director of North Yorkshire Law, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome so many brilliant new faces to the team in the last year. It is also brilliant to see training contracts and promotions for our hard-working staff.”

Boyd added: “We’re incredibly pleased to see so many progress in-house.”

Towards the end of 2018, North Yorkshire Law also expanded by opening a new office in York. The office, led by head of commercial Natalie Foster, came as the firm saw more business coming from the York area.

Boyd commented: “Having lived in York and carried out my training here, I’m happy to expand my firm back to the city.”

“There are many opportunities for us to provide our brand of service to both new and existing clients.”
