SOLICITORS Bowcock & Pursaill have recruited two new staff to their team as the business continues to grow following the opening of their new Eccleshall office.
Solicitor Katie Nixon will be based in their Eccleshall office in Stafford Street, and will be specialising in residential conveyancing.
Katie has been a solicitor since 2001 and is a Staffordshire University law graduate, having grown up in Rocester near Uttoxeter.
She said: “I know Eccleshall well having previously worked there with law firm Hacking Ashton, and it’s a lovely town to do business in.
“I’m expecting a lot of private client work dealing with matters such as conveyancing, wills and probate, but with estate agents James Du Pavey, Edge Goodrich, Hinson Parry and Reeds Rains on our doorstep I hope we can also provide a service to them.”
When Katie’s not working she’s a mum-of-two who plays piano and recently took part in The Color Obstacle Rush fun run at Uttoxeter Racecourse.
Sharon Whiston has also joined Bowcock & Pursaill as a database manager and marketing assistant based at their office in St Edward Street in Leek.
From Basford Park, Sharon is a former solicitor who took time out from her career following the birth of her third child, and now works part-time hours at B&P to fit around her family.
She said: “I found out about the role through Twitter and it was perfect for me, as I wanted a break from fee-earning, but have lots of experience of legal services and marketing.
“I had heard about Bowcock & Pursaill through my former boss, Jim Hickey, who joined the firm a few years ago and everyone here is really friendly.
“My main role now will be to update the database and assist in marketing the firm. I will also be in regular contact with our existing clients.”
The firm is also currently recruiting for a legal secretary, following the growth of their family and matrimonial department, and anyone interested in this position should contact partner Tim Wolley via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
