Health and social care law firm, Hempsons, will be bolstering its Harrogate team with three new lawyers, highlighting the firm’s commitment to growth in the Yorkshire region.
Solicitor Jon Gribit joins Hempsons from Nabarroo LLP where he specialised in real estate dispute resolution.
In his new role he will be focusing on property disputes, as well as general commercial litigation and contractual disputes for a range of public and private sector clients.
Jon has worked with a number of Hempsons’ clients before and comes to the firm aware of the issues they face.
He said: “Hempsons is an ambitious firm which is reflected by the recruitment drive across all levels and teams.
“I am looking forward to being part of the organisation during an important time of change for the healthcare sector.”
Dr Ronnie Tan joins from Irwin Mitchell as a Solicitor within Hempsons’ Healthcare Clinical Negligence team.
Ronnie brings a wealth of healthcare sector knowledge to the firm, having been a practising doctor at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.
Ronnie said: “Hempsons is well known in the sector as a firm that understands the needs of its clients. I’m looking forward to being part of the team in Harrogate and the wider firm, as well as helping to further strengthen client relationships.”
Dr Angela Bell, also a qualified medical practitioner, will undertake a paralegal role in Harrogate where she will support lawyers on healthcare litigation matters.
Angela will be starting her legal career at the firm, having worked as a doctor in the NHS for the past 15 years.
Angela’s clients are set to benefit from her medical background and insight into healthcare and the NHS.
Angela said: “I am excited to be a part of Hempsons – a well-known firm both in Harrogate and UK-wide, and look forward to using my medical background to benefit the firm’s clients.”
To show support to the community and third sector, this year Hempsons is fundraising for Macmillan.
The Harrogate office has raised £1,033.66 for the cancer charity since May through undertaking activities such as a “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” event earlier this month.
