Law firm sees further growth with new team members and internal promotions
Corporate law firm Shulmans LLP has strengthened its team to support the continuing growth of the full-service practice.
Following a successful series of new client wins, the commercial team has been expanded with the appointment of Helen Goldthorpe as an associate solicitor.
With a wealth of experience in commercial and IT contracting, Helen has specialist knowledge of data protection compliance, software development and exploitation, complex contractual joint ventures and outsourcing arrangements.
In addition, four Shulman trainees have recently qualified and secured permanent positions. Ryan Adams is a specialist in sports law, along with Sarah Briscall, who joins the Commercial team.
As well as specialising in consumer rights, Sarah leads a female networking group which is working with the local community to empower young women, helping them to consider a career in law. Emma Wardle will continue to support the award-winning Residential Development team and Oliver Whelligan-Fell boosts the rapidly-growing corporate offering.
Shulmans has also welcomed Joe Gosling and Eleanor Russell-Smith, who join the firm as trainee solicitors. Their first seats are in Property Support and Residential Development respectively.
Chris Peace, partner and training principal, said: “We are very proud of the training programme at Shulmans. We are committed to providing the very best training so that we can continue to develop truly excellent legal minds and ultimately, ensure that we have a successful and highly-skilled Shulmans team.”
Managing partner of Shulmans, Tim Halstead, said: “We are delighted to celebrate the hard work of our newly qualified solicitors and welcome our new recruits. Our commitment to providing consistently excellent service to our clients is dependent upon having the best people. This will further strengthen Shulmans at an exciting time in our development.”
