Recruitment drive under way at Bromleys Solicitors

"Our benefits package, IT and positive approach to flexible working rivals any city centre law firm and enables us to attract real talent to complement and enhance our existing offering"
Mark Hirst

Law firm Bromleys has embarked on a recruitment drive amid increasing demand for its services as confidence grows with the end of lockdown on the horizon.

The award-winning Tameside practice has added four staff in recent weeks across its care proceedings and children services, corporate and commercial and family teams.

The new arrivals are solicitors Charlotte Ellingham and Lisa Bartlett, chartered legal executive Carla Williams and paralegal Holly Sweeney.

In addition, Anthony Nurney has been promoted and secured a training contract supporting the litigation and family teams.

Senior and managing partner Mark Hirst said: “Further recruitment is in the pipeline due to the upturn in business across the board.”

He said Bromleys’ career pathway, strong team spirit and extensive benefits package were key factors in enabling the firm to attract new talent.

Charlotte specialises in child care law and is a member of the Law Society’s Children Law Accreditation scheme, which recognises specialists in children and family law work.

She is the seventh solicitor at Bromleys to be a member of the scheme, which was previously known as the Children Panel. Her appointment means Bromleys has one of the largest representations under the scheme across Tameside and the whole of Greater Manchester.

Joining Charlotte in care proceedings and children services is paralegal Holly, who will assist the team.

Lisa has joined the corporate and commercial team after relocating from the south coast. She will focus primarily on commercial property transactions and complex residential property matters and will also support the commercial team on other matters. Her appointment follows a significant increase in instructions and commercial activity for the team.

Carla Williams has joined the firm working exclusively in the family team. She has extensive experience in advising on divorce and relationship breakdowns, domestic abuse injunctions and all aspects of the arrangements regarding children and finances, arising from the separation of couples.

Mark said: “All four new recruits are a great fit for the firm, and we look forward to seeing them develop their careers with us.

“Our benefits package, IT and positive approach to flexible working rivals any city centre law firm and enables us to attract real talent to complement and enhance our existing offering.

“This, coupled with our career pathway scheme which maps out a defined path for progression in the firm, makes Bromleys the practice of choice for a growing number of talented legal professionals who share our values of being accessible, caring and effective and are committed to providing clients with a service of the highest quality.

“The last year was challenging, but I’m delighted to say that the Bromleys team stepped up, working together to be the best – which is our internal motto – and we are now well set to expand further in the coming months and year.”
