BLJ Welcome 10 New Faces to the Team Following Record Recruitment Drive




BLJ Welcome 10 New Faces to the Team Following Record Recruitment Drive

Bell Lamb & Joynson Solicitors is looking ahead to the new year following a record number of appointments in the last 12 months.

The North West legal firm has created seven permanent positions alongside the recruitment of three administrative apprentices with its newest members holding expertise in areas such as criminal law and conveyancing to name a few.

BLJ Solicitors now employs a total of 38 members of staff alongside five partners working across a trio of locations in Liverpool, Runcorn and Warrington, having grown the team by 20% in 2018.

Managing Partner Mike Leeman said: “Last year was exceptionally busy in terms of company development with team expansion being one of our strategic priorities. BLJ Solicitors continues to thrive after 198 years in business and these new roles have been designed to equip us for our expanding workload. It is important to us to preserve the firm’s heritage and continue to offer an unrivalled service when it comes to expertise and customer care, as we always have done since 1821.

“Annual turnover is up by 20% compared to this time last year following the continued evolution of our specialist departments, such as conveyancing and criminal defence, which have doubled in the last 24 months. To support this, we have welcomed two additional criminal solicitors in to the business and have encouraged the professional development of existing staff with one employee completing his training to become a qualified solicitor last year. Conveyancing is one of our largest growth areas and with this in mind, we have recruited three conveyancing assistants and have promoted one of our longstanding staff members, Laura Cartwright, to become head of conveyancing.”

Since September 2018, BLJ Solicitors has recruited criminal solicitors Darren Jones and Jane Hedges, paralegals Kirsty Llewellyn, Joe Connor and Tiffany Priam, senior receptionist Natalie Martin and conveyancing assistant Kerry Looker.

Mike added: “We are incredibly passionate about supporting personal development and giving our employees the opportunity to enhance their career in the legal sector. As well as taking on a number of trainee positions and apprentices, we are delighted to have made several senior appointments with the aim to drive business forward and help to revolutionise our offering. We’re looking forward to what 2019 has in store and have plans for further recruitment in the coming months.”
