The addition of Richard marks the fourth hire for the firm so far this year, with additions to their thriving residential, corporate and commercial property departments also on the way this spring.
Commenting, James O’Donnell, Director and Head of Commercial, said:
“This is another exciting hire for the firm; Richard’s appointment pays tribute to the continued success and growth of the firm’s growing client base and attracting the region’s top talent. Richard’s appointment will equip us to continue to provide advice and support on the most serious and complex cases assisted by consultant Chris MacCafferty. The appointment guarantees that the firms existing and future client base can be fully supported in both contentious and non contentious matters. The firm has a fantastic client retention rate and growth has been remarkable. Part of that is down to the ability to cross refer between our different teams in across our various departments.
“2022 is already proving to be a successful year for us; with the corporate team having completed in excess of £15 million in deal value coupled with the opening of our new office and overhaul of the firms IT support and the appointment of new team members. The firm continues to exceed expectations in every department which is down to the effort and determination of everybody here and we look forward to announcing more new appointments in the coming months”.
