Berwins Solicitors, which has offices in Leeds and Harrogate, has promoted Jo Randall to head up its residential property team following a strong first half of the year.
Jo, a former partner with Rollits, joined the firm in January from Langleys Solicitors in York and has extensive experience acting for developers and investors, as well as Housing Associations.
Marketing director Carolynn Peace, who previously managed the residential team, said Jo’s experience had been an asset to the department during a busy time.
Carolynn said: "We are really fortunate to have had the benefit of Jo’s experience over the past few months and her expertise means we are well placed to continue with our expansion plans.
"Jo’s role now will be to develop the team and oversee the smooth running of the office as this area of the business grows."
