A SCARBOROUGH law firm is growing with two new staff appointments.
Thorpe and Co Solicitors, in Valley Bridge Parade, has announced Justin Coates and Kate Young have joined the practice, which also has offices in Whitby and Filey.
Mr Coates joins the company as practice manager and is tasked with ensuring the firm provides quality legal services and client care to its customers across North Yorkshire.
Ms Young has started as a new associate solicitor working in the family law area.
Her expertise covers a range of potential issues including divorce, civil partnership dissolution and advice on separation.
Company director Ian Brabbs welcomed both Mr Coates and Ms Young, saying: “Thorpe and Co are committed to continued provision of exceptional client care, as a result we have asked Justin in his role of practice manager to focus on quality and development opportunities and Kate is here so that we can service more clients with the growth of the business.
“Her expertise in the family law and childcare area means that we are able to meet the needs of the Yorkshire coast region.”
Ms Young said: “I am very excited to be working at Thorpe and Co. By joining this firm I get to be part of its excellent reputation, delivering the best to my clients.
“Family problems are often very difficult for those involved; I am looking forward to meeting new and old clients and working with them to find a resolution to their legal problems.”
Thorpe and Co has recently been awarded Lexcel accreditation, the Law Society’s mark of excellence.
Following his appointment one of Mr Coates’ roles will be to ensure that the company continues to meet those standards.
He said; “I am very pleased to be working with a highly skilled and vibrant team at Thorpe and Co.
“We offer services across the legal spectrum; as such we are often the first port of call for anyone needing any legal help. I believe that the people on the Yorkshire Coast deserve the best service and with our team I am confident we can deliver the best to all of our clients.
“The Lexcel award demonstrates to our future and existing clients that we are completely committed to quality today and into the future.”
