Smith Partnership has bolstered its operation in Leicester by hiring five new staff.
The city branch, led by managing partner Alison Neate, has seen steady expansion in recent years and now it is growing further.
Smith Partnership has been recognised by the Legal 500 for its work in professional negligence and runs a sister company, Claims Against, from Leicester. Associate Solicitor Suhail Alloo joins that department from Nelsons and specialises in complex cases.
Paralegal Sophie Wilson has arrived from the Josiah Hincks law firm and will add even more strength to the same division.
Meanwhile, Samuel Mason, a solicitor who specialises in family law, is also joining the Leicester team from Dodds Solicitors where he had spent four years.
Further depth will be added by conveyancing legal executive Marcus Samuel-Brown and Paricce Davis who has become a Legal Secretary in the commercial property department.
Alison said: “I am delighted to be able to add a wealth of talent to our Leicester team.
“Our hard work at immersing ourselves in the community is being reflected by a big increase in caseloads which meant we were able to sign people of the highest calibre.
“I look forward to working with them all and continuing to expand our offer in Leicester and Leicestershire and, in some cases, beyond.”
