Grantham-based law firm JMP Solicitors has expanded its conveyancing and private client teams, with the appointment of four new hires.
Sharon Galley, who qualified as a licensed conveyancer in 2019 and brings 17 years’ experience with her, will manage and head up the conveyancing team with the support of new executives Kirsty Andrew and Jennifer Coath. Sharon brings a wealth of local knowledge with her to the firm and has existing relationships with key estate agents and brokers within the area.
Both Kirsty and Jennifer bring a wealth of experience to JMP Solicitors – Kirsty is a member of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices – and Jennifer is a qualified CILEX lawyer.
Kerry Davey also joins the private client team as a paralegal, with more than six years’ experience within the industry, and will advise clients on probate applications, wills and lasting powers of attorney. She recently undertook and passed the new solicitors qualifying examinations and is now a qualified solicitor.
Ian Howard, managing director at JMP Solicitors, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Kerry, Sharon, Kirsty and Jennifer to the team, they all bring an abundance of skills, knowledge and passion that will help to strengthen our paralegal and conveyancing teams.
“We have experienced a period of internal growth and it’s great to be recruiting four new employees at JMP Solicitors. I look forward to seeing them progress and wish them the best of luck in their new roles.”
