A Tees law firm has bolstered its litigation team with two key appointments following considerable growth and development in the legal market.
Stockton-based Archers Law has appointed Kenton Bazeley as partner and head of litigation, along with an experienced associate solicitor, Helen Lyne – doubling the firm’s litigation team.
Kenton and Helen join the litigation team alongside partner Angela Torrance and associate solicitor Richard Flounders.
Archers Law has worked extensively to develop its litigation service, earning recognition in the Legal 500 as a result.
These new appointments will give the firm the additional resource required to grow this area of the business strategically and ensure continued success. The overall headcount of the firm stands at 65.
Managing partner Chris Todd said: “Over recent years we have focused on developing the services within our business client department by recruiting high calibre solicitors and increasing the level of instructions we receive.
“Kenton’s appointment as a partner shows further growth in the firm and provides us with a fresh approach to the development of our litigation and dispute service.
“With Helen joining the firm at the same time we have doubled the size of our legal service provision in this area of law and are able to offer a wider breadth of legal expertise to our clients.”
