Truth Legal enters next stage of growth



From trainee to MD, Georgina takes the helm at expanding Yorkshire law firm

A YORKSHIRE firm of ethical lawyers has promoted solicitor Georgina Parkin to become its new managing director.

She will spearhead the growth of Truth Legal in Harrogate as it embarks on the next stage of its expansion plans.

Georgina – Vice-President of Harrogate and District Law Society - will work closely with the company’s founder and former managing director Andrew Gray. His role will now focus on the business development and marketing of the law firm.

This includes the development of the company’s podcast series, which has made over 40 broadcasts since going live two years ago, and its website, which has grown into one of the UK legal sector’s most visited with over 37,000 page visits a month to its blogs alone.

Having grown into a team of nearly 20 staff since opening its doors seven years ago, Truth Legal is now setting its sights on launching a specialist immigration law department. Truth Legal has just opened a specialist consumer law department as well as a property litigation department.

Georgina, who specialises in personal injury law, civil litigation and employment law, has worked for Truth Legal for six years and joined its Board as a Director in 2016.

She said: “I look forward to working with the home-grown legal talent that exists across Truth Legal to take forward our diverse expertise into new areas.

“My career began here as a trainee solicitor, and it has been a great experience to contribute to its future success, and at the same time to see similar growth in my career.

“I am proud that we continue to help so many people to obtain access to justice and that we provide an ethical, human and affordable service - a true cornerstone of our success.”

Georgina, who lives in Leeds, previously worked for BLM and DWF before joining Truth Legal team. She is the Vice President of the Harrogate and District Law Society, which last year celebrated its 100th anniversary.

Andrew Gray said: “Georgina has been a key member of the team at Truth Legal since we were in our infancy and brings a raft of skills to her new role – ones which will help us accelerate our plans to expand and diversify. As the firm’s first lawyer hire, I don’t regret the 14-hour job interview which Georgina endured all those years ago.

“Georgina’s appointment will also equip me with more time to concentrate on the marketing and development of the business, bringing to life new ways of building on our reputation as online innovators in the UK legal sector.”
