Two solicitors rise to new heights at Newcastle firm
A leading North East law firm is promoting two experienced solicitors to senior positions within the company.
Solicitors Rachel Swinburne and Katy Rushworth, of Newcastle-based Clarke Mairs LLP, are being named as partners in recognition of their dedication to the firm and the successful development of their departments.
Rachel joined Clarke Mairs in February 2013 to bolster the firm’s Private Client division. She advises clients on all aspects of wills and estate planning, trusts, succession planning and inheritance tax. Since joining the company, Rachel has continually grown the Private Client department’s case load.
Katy Rushworth, who joined Clarke Mairs as a trainee in 2007, acts almost exclusively for landlords and tenants in the exercise of rights under Leasehold Enfranchisement legislation. She has steadily brought in a number of new clients and built relationships with local and national surveyors.
Partner of Clarke Mairs, Tim Clarke, said: “We’re delighted to announce Rachel and Katy as our newest partners at Clarke Mairs, in recognition of their hard work, loyalty, initiative and the immense success they have both had in developing their respective departments.”
