Currently with 80 members from firms throughout Greater Manchester and Lancashire, the association plans to hold more events in Leeds and Sheffield over the coming twelve months.

Commenting on the news, Miss Hall said:

“I am delighted to have been appointed as a committee member of the YFLNA. Having been a member of the association for the past year and having gained an awful lot out of my membership, it will be fantastic to be more involved with its running and organisation.

“There are some exciting plans in place for the coming twelve months that I look forward to both myself and Farleys being part of. The fraud and business crime unit at Farleys is one of the largest and most successful in the North, and I am pleased that we can take a part in assisting young solicitors and trainees specialising in this fascinating and often complex area of law to develop their knowledge and make new contacts.”

The fraud and business crime department at Farleys operates in both Lancashire and Manchester, offering legal advice for company directors and business owners on a wide range of matters including MTIC / carousel fraud, VAT Tribunals, accusations of fraud, money laundering, corporate manslaughter and professional disciplinary proceedings.
