A Tees Valley-based law firm has strengthened its team following an increase in demand for its business services.
Punch Robson, a traditional mixed-practice high street law firm, has appointed Laurie Wilson as the new legal executive and solicitor in its commercial department.
Laurie joins the Company, which has offices in Ingleby Barwick, Middlesbrough and Coulby Newham, with eight years’ experience in the legal sector, having previously worked for a national top 45 UK law firm.
The new recruit, who grew up in the North East, has moved from Liverpool back to her roots in Yarm and she is looking forward to working in the Tees Valley, an area which is particularly close to her heart.
Speaking about her appointment, Laurie said: “I am really excited to get back to the area I know and love.
“I am enthusiastic, motivated and a good team player. I am looking forward to meeting clients and building relationships, and I am keen to develop my skills and experience and grow with the firm.”
Laurie will work alongside Punch Robson’s Managing Partner and Head of Corporate and Commercial Property, Elaine McLaine-Wood to act for clients and also generate new business.
Elaine said: “Laurie will be an excellent ambassador for Punch Robson and she has had an excellent city grooming, which is second to none.
“It is very rare to have attracted a solicitor with her knowledge to a smaller firm. Her work ethic and experience received to date will hold her in good stead in her career and will help to enhance Punch Robson and the services we can offer.”
