Tinsdills are further strengthening their team with appointments in key positions across the firm.
To support our business growth across all four of our offices in Hanley, Newcastle, Leek and Sandbach we have recruited a number of new staff in key positions so that the firm now numbers 97 staff across our branches.
We have grown steadily and carefully to build a strong team to adapt to the modern legal services market and to continue to service our expanding client base. Through natural growth, mergers and acquisitions we have been able to keep moving forward even in times when economic conditions have been far from ideal and many in our industry have struggled.
We are also delighted to have been able to choose some great people to join us, meaning we have people who really understand the culture and ethics of what Tinsdills is all about.
Some of the new faces include Liz Tappin, who specialises in residential property at our Sandbach office.
After a successful career teaching Economics and Business Studies Liz decided to move to the Legal profession and joined us in late 2016.
Outside work, Liz enjoys walking, playing tennis and spending time with her friends and family. Liz is also a Hammer, which football fans will know means she is an ardent, lifelong West Ham United supporter.
We also welcome James Charnock to our Newcastle under Lyme and Sandbach offices. James qualified as a solicitor in 2007 and specialises in wills, estate administration, inheritance tax planning, powers of attorney, court of protection and trust matters.
Away from work, James enjoys spending time with family and friends, but also when conditions are right he can be seen heading to the shore as he pursues his hobby of surfing.
Next, we wish to say a big welcome to Zoe Norgrove, who works in residential property in our Hanley office.
Zoe previously worked for a large corporate firm in Birmingham and qualified as a Licensed Conveyancer in 2011 and she is now putting her experience to great use dealing with residential property in our Hanley office.
Being a mum Zoe is kept busy with her baby boy and demanding dog, when away from the rigours of conveyancing.
Rebekah Lewis qualified as a Solicitor in March having been through our Trainee Solicitor programme and she has now joined our Business Services Unit to continue to specialise in Corporate and Commercial work.
Rebekah can assist with a wide range of corporate transactions including mergers and acquisitions, disposals (both asset and share sales), management buy outs and re-organisations.
Outside of work, Rebekah enjoys playing netball, reading and attending Sunday league football to support her local team.
Deborah Turner has joined our Family Law department working in both Newcastle under Lyme and Sandbach.
Deborah has 20 years’ experience in family law working all over the country and has been a member of the specialist Children Panel and Resolution Family Advanced Panel.
In her home life, Deborah is a mum of two Junior School age girls and in her spare time, which many Mums will tell you is very little, she enjoys reading, theatre and takes ballet, tap and disco lessons!
As well as these new faces, we also have three new Trainee Solicitors starting with us in September and we are recruiting for further positions throughout the business as we continue to broaden our service offering to our new and existing client base.
We welcome all our new recruits to Tinsdills and we are confident they will all play a huge part in our continuing success in delivering outstanding client service.
