Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic may have caused disruption to the way in which businesses operate, it has certainly not hindered the appointment of new staff at a leading Wrexham law firm.
GHP Legal, one of the top 500 law firms in England and Wales, has announced the appointment of solicitor, Catherine Field, to the Civil Litigation department at its head office in Grosvenor Road, Wrexham.
The firm, which also has offices in Oswestry, Llangollen and Chirk, completely reorganised its operational systems at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, with solicitors working remotely from home and appointments being carried out by telephone or video call other than in emergency situations.
Despite joining the GHP Legal team at a difficult time, Catherine Field says she has felt both welcome and supported. She will continue her specialism in personal injury work as well as dealing with other civil matters.
After qualifying as a solicitor in September 2019 Catherine worked in Shrewsbury and Manchester before her love of the countryside and Wales brought her to Wrexham. As a postgraduate at Cardiff University she took up rowing and became a coach alongside her full-time legal studies.
GHP Legal Partner, Robert Williams, said: “Due to coronavirus and the lockdown it has been an unsettled start to Catherine’s career with us, but we are very pleased to have her on board. As part of the civil litigation team we are expecting to keep her very busy over the next few months in particular.”
