A spike in new client wins and a focus on growing the business has led to a recruitment drive at Yorkshire-based law firm, Consilia Legal.
To bolster the Family Law team, Sophie Arrowsmith and Sandeep Sandhu have been appointed as Associate Solicitors. Joining from Lupton Fawcett LLP, Sophie said, “I am thrilled to have joined such a forward-thinking firm of like-minded lawyers. Consilia Legal put the client first and work pragmatically to encourage alternative dispute resolution. Having worked in the family law sector for many years, I had heard of the firm’s positive reputation, which I’ve now seen first-hand and couldn’t be happier to be a part of.” After qualifying in May 2018, Sophie is now working towards achieving the Law Society specialist accreditation in Family Law.
Sandeep Sandhu who has returned to Yorkshire after a period of time at Thursfields in the West Midlands added, “I am delighted to join Consilia Legal, especially at a time when the firm is going through an exciting phase. It’s good to be back in my home town after working away for many years and to be working for a firm that has national recognition. The client testimonials prove that the firm is passionate about client care, which is something that is very important to me. The firm has embraced new technology which is far more advanced than a lot of other bigger firms which means that we can really extend our services.”
Strengthening the Employment Law team and helping to manage an influx of new cases, Laura Huntington has been appointment as a Paralegal at the firm. Having previously worked at Addleshaw Goddard LLP, Laura is studying for her CILEx qualification and is working towards becoming a Chartered Legal Executive.
Speaking on behalf of the new appointments, Marie Walsh, Co-Director, Employment Solicitor and Mediator at Consilia Legal said, “We’ve reached a pinnacle point in the business where we need to invest in people to ensure we can maintain our high standards of client care now and in the future. Ensuring we have the right people on board to deliver the very best results for our growing client base is paramount. Whilst having only worked at the firm for a short time, the new recruits have all immersed themselves into our company culture and fit perfectly with our values centred around looking after our clients. We are delighted to have three talented women join our expanding team of professional and passionate people.”
