Ms Buckley has amassed a wealth of experience in cultivating new business in the legal sector.
Her achievements include playing an instrumental role in launching and growing the Leeds office of Irwin Mitchell.

“I was attracted to hlw Keeble Hawson because of its quality driven ethos and commitment to delivering a first class partner-led service to clients.
“I’ve also joined at a formative and exciting period in the firm’s growth.”
Richard Fergusson, managing partner of the Leeds office of hlw Keeble Hawson, said:
“Elaine’s powerful network of contacts, coupled with her reputation for being a driving force, will add value to our growing team as we continue to expand our service offering.”
Hlw Keeble Hawson is one of the region’s largest law firms which also has offices in Sheffield and Doncaster.
