The firm, which now has one of the largest conveyancing departments in the country, is taking advantage of the growing housing market, as well as expanding each of its other divisions, with the aim of employing more than 200 people by the end of the year.
Based in Wakefield with a turnover exceeding £5 million, Beaumont Legal is at the forefront of the provision of modern legal services with a reputation for providing a quality, honest service.
Tracing its history back more than 200 years, 2013 saw unparalleled growth for the firm, which expanded from 50 employees to more than 120, with the majority of the new roles being solicitors and law graduates in the conveyancing division.
In 2014 Beaumont Legal is continuing to expand its residential conveyancing business as well as building its provision of litigation, commercial property and wills and probate services.
The first new solicitor to be hired outside of conveyancing is Nicola Roberts, 45, who joins the firm as an associate solicitor with more 17 years’ experience specialising in litigation such as personal injury and medical negligence.
Nicola was selected because she brings a personal approach to her cases and is able to guide victims throughout a difficult process, a quality valued by Beaumont Legal.
Roy Cusworth, senior partner at Beaumont Legal, said:
“Last year we began a major expansion of the conveyancing business as well as building a management team capable of developing Beaumont Legal into one of the country’s top providers of specialist and modern legal services.
“During 2014 we will hire more conveyancing solicitors as the residential property market goes into overdrive and we’re also looking to build our team in other areas as we continue to develop other specialist services.
“Nicola’s personal injury expertise is an excellent addition to our litigation team. Her hands on, ‘can do’ approach represents the kind of quality appointments we will continue to make as we grow the business by expanding upon our extensive Yorkshire and national client base.”
“It’s exciting to come into a firm that has such a buzz around it at the moment and is expanding at such a rate, with so many opportunities.
“Beaumont Legal is known for its personal approach to client service and that’s something I value both professionally and personally.
“The whole team has made me feel extremely welcome and I am already enjoying helping clients from a wide variety of backgrounds to pursue their claims.”
