A NORTH Yorkshire law firm is ending the year as they began, expanding their team as part of their growth plans.

Over the past two months, Crombie Wilkinson Solicitors has welcomed 10 new members of staff for various specialist legal work, including agricultural, commercial property and employment law across its four offices.

It follows news back in February, when the firm announced it was joining forces with Ellis Lakin & Co to form Crombie Wilkinson Ellis Lakin Solicitors in Pickering.

In Malton, the firm has welcomed Clair Douglas as associate solicitor and Charlotte Boyes as trainee Solicitor and in Pickering Emma Bentley as paralegal.

In York, the firm welcomes Isobel Willoughby as senior associate solicitor, Amy Mills and Amy Clarkson as solicitors and Caroline Clay, Emily Croft and Jackie Smith as paralegals, and at Selby Ben Simpson as trainee solicitor.
