Julie Makin

Law firm Holden Smith has grown its specialist conveyancing team with the appointment of experienced conveyancing manager, Julie Makin.

Ms Makin has more than 20 years’ experience in the conveyancing industry, having worked in a volume re-mortgage team before moving into operations management and client relationship roles.

Makin is based at the firm’s Leeds Crossgates office and will act on sales and purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity and bridging finance for clients.

James Smith, co-founder and director at Holden Smith, said: “Julie is a well-known and highly regarded conveyancing specialist, and her appointment is significant in the continued growth of our residential conveyancing team. We are delighted to welcome her to Holden Smith.

Ms Makin said: “Holden Smith is a dynamic, forward thinking law firm and I am pleased to be joining at a time of significant growth for the business to further strengthen our specialist conveyancing team.

“We are different to other large conveyancing solicitors as we retain the small firm feeling where customer service sits at the core, while having the resource and experience to manage a high volume of cases.”

Founded in 2019 by James Smith and David Bancroft, Holden Smith employs a team of 60 people with offices in Huddersfield, Leeds, Halifax and Ilkley.
