Law firm boosts team with next generation of lawyers

hlw Keeble Hawson’s ongoing commitment to train and develop a pipeline of talent in 2018 is reflected in newly qualified solicitors being appointed across its commercial and private client teams.

Sherelle O’Brien, based in the firm’s private client department in Sheffield, has gained experience in wide-ranging areas including charities, court of protection and commercial property issues. Emily King, who works with the litigation and dispute resolution team and is also based at the firm’s Sheffield office, has amassed expertise in residential property, construction, litigation and employment.

Both Sherelle and Emily have played key roles in hlw Keeble Hawson’s charity drive which raised almost £11k in fundraising and donations across the past 12 months for a raft of local charities including St Luke’s Hospice, Changing Lives and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The firm has also taken on five trainee solicitors across its offices in Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster – bringing the total number of trainees appointed to 17 in the last two years.

Paul Trudgill, hlw Keeble Hawson managing partner, said: “Developing and supporting the next generation of lawyers in 2018 remains among our top priorities. Sherelle and Emily will further enhance our wide-ranging expertise and reputation as a leading, award-winning firm.”
