Davis Blank Furniss is further strengthening its core Property department across both its Manchester & Glossop offices following the announcement of a new appointment and an internal promotion.
Jennifer Smith is joining the firm from North Ainley Solicitors as an assistant solicitor. Her new role will see her working on both commercial and residential clients and she will be directly reporting into Richard Hamilton – partner. Jennifer graduated from the University of Manchester with a BA Government and Law in 2003 and she completed her LPC at Manchester Metropolitan University. She has also previously worked at Horwich Cohen Coghlan (formerly Rowe Cohen).
Whilst over in Glossop, Emma Little has been promoted to paralageal. Emma, who has worked at Davis Blank Furniss for 16 years, has held various positions across the firm and she is now working closely with Martyn Gee – partner – and Susan Wood – partner – on all their conveyancing matters; from initial instruction to completion.
Jennifer said of her new role; “Davis Blank Furniss has great reputation so I’m delighted the next stage of my career will be here. The Property department has an exciting year ahead of it and I’m looking forward to being part of its growth.”
Kate Oldfield – managing partner – added; “Jennifer has a solid background within Property Law so I know she’ll enhance and add real value to the team which will – of course – directly benefit our clients. Emma’s promotion is also great news and well deserved as she has been part of the Davis Blank Furniss family for many years.”
