Law firm Clarke Willmott LLP in Southampton has strengthened its commercial property, corporate and employment teams with new starters across the board.

Hayley Steel, who specialises in non-contentious construction, has joined the firm as a Senior Associate. She will be able to offer support in construction law to the large commercial property team already situated in the Southampton office.

Last year the commercial property team recruited two new Partners; Joe Campbell and Jin Takhar, who specialise in retail, portfolio management and property finance.
In the employment team Grace Turnbull has joined as a Paralegal.

Marc Long, Partner and Head of Employment in the Clarke Willmott Southampton office said: “The employment team in Southampton is a busy and well respected team servicing some of the biggest businesses in the country as well as along the South Coast. Grace is an important addition to the team.”

The corporate team has also expanded with two new joiners and the qualification of a trainee. Pav Jureczko joins as a Solicitor from Bournemouth-based firm Coles Miller LLP, Nour Belal joins as a Paralegal from Capsticks and Hollie Blackwood Fisher, a trainee Solicitor with Clarke Willmott, qualifies as a Solicitor in the corporate team.

Kelvin Balmont, Partner in the corporate team and Head of the Southampton office said: “We are delighted that we are continuing to expand our Southampton office with new additions to several teams. This follows what has been a successful and profitable year for the firm, particularly the Southampton office. It is an exciting time to be at Clarke Willmott.”
