Hay & Kilner has expanded some of its key practice areas with the appointment of two solicitors, reflecting the strong performance of both the individuals and those teams.
Following the successful completion of their training, Lauren Hall and Richard Marshall have secured their future careers as solicitors with the Newcastle-based firm. These appointments continue Hay & Kilner’s record of promoting talented individuals within the firm.
Lauren Hall has joined Hay & Kilner’s leading clinical negligence department. Clinical negligence is a significant practice area for the firm, which is top ranked in Chambers Guide and The Legal 500, both independently researched guides to the UK legal profession. Hay & Kilner is one of the few firms in the area to hold a clinical negligence franchise with a team of individuals who are experienced in handling high-value, complex claims.
Richard Marshall has qualified into Hay & Kilner’s seven-strong team of private capital solicitors. Richard advises clients on all aspects of Private Capital work including Wills, trusts, probate, powers of attorney, inheritance tax and estate planning. Richard’s appointment demonstrates Hay & Kilner’s commitment to expanding their expertise in this field and to providing clients with the best possible guidance.
Martin Soloman, senior partner, commented: “We are always keen to attract high calibre graduates to Hay & Kilner. Lauren and Richard have worked extremely hard over the last two years to earn permanent positions at our firm where they can specialise and complement the skills of existing team members.”
Hay & Kilner has also recently appointed two new trainee solicitors. Jan Rzedzian and Jonathan Smith join two other trainee solicitors who are currently completing the final year of their training contracts.
