Law firm Bromleys has continued its expansion with the arrival of Michelle Wood as a solicitor in its wills, probate and planning for the future team.
Michelle worked as a legal secretary for a number of years before undertaking the Masters in Law and Practice course at Huddersfield University and graduating in 2015.
She qualified as a solicitor in 2019. Michelle specialises in will drafting and execution, estate administration and Lasting Powers of Attorney provision for clients.
Michelle has joined Tameside practice Bromleys from a firm in Middleton, Greater Manchester.
She said: “It’s refreshing to be part of a welcoming team at Bromleys with similar values.
“Bromleys is widely recognised for its professional and caring service to clients and the firm also invests in its employees so that they feel included and that their contribution is valued.
“I am super-excited about my future with the firm and the friendly, supportive and inclusive environment here.”
Michelle is the latest addition to the wills, probate and planning for the future team, which is headed by senior associate Francesca Rigby.
Last year its ranks were bolstered by the arrival of senior solicitor Joanne Jones and solicitor Jade Wright.
Francesca said: “Michelle’s appointment further demonstrates the upward trajectory of the team. Over the past year it has gone from strength to strength, mirrored by the additional staff we have recruited.
“They are a tremendous asset to Bromleys, and we are excited for what is in store for them and the whole team in the coming months.”
