A Cleckheaton-based law firm run by some of West Yorkshire’s best known solicitors has made three new appointments as part of its strategy for growth.
Partners at Williams & Co Solicitors – Jeremy Garside, Robert Brackup and Tim Welton – have welcomed experienced solicitors Jonathan Perry, Cassie Land and Danielle Burrow after a period of impressive growth for the firm.
Jonathan Perry joins the firm as an associate solicitor in charge of expanding the commercial property side of the business in Wakefield and to mentor other fee earners including another recruit, Cassie.
Jonathan has worked in leading commercial law firms in London and Leeds as well as in-house at both Shepherd Building Group and in local government for Barnsley Council.
He said: “Williams & Co is a firm going to new and challenging places with an ambitious team of solicitors. I am very much looking forward to helping the firm expand the business in the Wakefield area.”
Cassie, who joins the firm from Leeds-based DWF LLP, will add a wealth of experience to Williams & Co’s residential team. As an associate legal executive, she will work on various matters including redevelopment, refurbishment projects with lender involvement, large-scale purchases and new development sites.
Newly-qualified solicitor Danielle Burrow also joins the firm and will work in the dispute resolution team having worked in the legal profession for five years.
She said: “I was attracted to work at Williams & Co by the opportunities that working alongside knowledgeable and experienced members of the legal team would provide.”
The new appointments will help service the demand from new and existing clients and will take the total workforce to 26. Williams & Co plans to recruit a further five people in the next six months.
Jeremy Garside, partner at Williams & Co, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan, Cassie and Danielle to the team who all bring with them a wealth of experience to strengthen our commercial, residential and dispute teams.
“As we continue to grow it’s important for us to attract talented individuals who we can work with to deliver a high-quality service to our clients.”
