Martin Wood, Director said “The elevation of Felicity to Director, our first non-lawyer appointment, is a recognition that the provision of legal services in the 21st century for a growing and successful firm needs, not only a team of dedicated and specialised lawyers with all their support staff, but having a specialist in business management on board with all the required skills in dealing with human resources, regulatory requirements, marketing and the day to day issues of running a business. All these qualities Felicity has in abundance”.
Her appointment reflects the ambitions of the firm, who are expanding throughout the Aire Valley.
