L-R – Alice Wood, Amy Duncan, Anna Billingsley, Olivia Cooper, Joseph Bridge, and Amy Jones.

North West law firm Farleys Solicitors have continued to invest in talent and the future of the legal profession with new appointments across the firm’s six offices.

Alice Wood and Amy Duncan have been retained as solicitors following completion of their training contracts at Farleys, joining the firm’s inquests and corporate teams, respectively.

Alice joined Farleys in 2018 as a paralegal working within Farleys’ specialist inquests team, progressing to her training contract in 2020. Two years on, she has now qualified and successfully secured a role within the team that she began her journey at Farleys with. Alice will be specialising in representing bereaved families facing inquest proceedings, and advising on civil claims against the state for human rights breaches.

Amy joined Farleys in 2020, having already undertaken experience in corporate law. Following her two years of training, which included seats within the family law, commercial property, and corporate departments, Amy will now re-join the corporate team on a permanent basis as a solicitor and will specialise in all aspects of corporate law including business and asset sales and purchases.

Looking to follow in their footsteps are newly appointed trainee solicitors Amy Jones, Anna Billingsley, Joseph Bridge and Olivia Cooper, who have recently commenced their two-year training contracts, gaining experience in a broad range of legal specialisms.

Nick Molyneux, partner and training principal at Farleys commented,

On behalf of everyone at Farleys, I would like to extend my congratulations to Alice and Amy on completing their training contracts and securing permanent positions in their respective teams. Both have worked immensely hard and are great assets to Farleys.
