National law firm Simpson Millar has bolstered its client services in Manchester with the appointment of Caroline Hurst who joins the firm as Chartered Legal Executive.

Joining the firm from Switalskis Solicitors, Caroline brings her 10 years’ of experience and recommendation from the Legal 500 for ‘fighting fearlessly for her clients’ and she will work in capacity law to represent clients of Simpson Millar’s Manchester office.

The announcement comes amidst further expansions across the country, including appointments in Leeds and Bristol, as part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to investment in its people further to its ambitious £50m investment growth strategy which was announced last year.

Commenting on the new appointment, Imogen Jolley, Simpson Millar’s Head of Public Law, said: “This is a very exciting period of growth for Simpson Millar, which has invested heavily in ensuring that we are best placed to meet the growing and ever changing needs of our clients.

“This latest appointment further complements our existing offering, and ensures that we have a stronger presence in a growing number of regions in order to provide support and expertise to those in need.

“Caroline brings a wealth of experience to the table – through her educational journey, and her career to date – she is exactly the calibre of legal professionals we are looking to add to our team at this time.

“Appointing a stellar team is a key facet of our growth strategy, and we are pleased to be able to expand our client offering in Bristol, to provide specialist support to more people who need it.”

On her appointment, Caroline said: “I am excited to join the team at such a pivotal period, and am looking forward to being a part of strengthening the firm’s reputation and helping Simpson Millar to continue on its growth trajectory.”
