MORECROFTS Solicitors has promoted private client lawyer Maureen Holloway to associate solicitor.
Holloway leads a specialist team working on behalf of elderly and vulnerable clients on matters such as powers of attorney, deputyships, wills and probate.
After joining Morecrofts as a legal clerk in 2005, she qualified as a legal executive in 2011 and later as a solicitor in 2014 at the age of 52, and is based primarily at the firm’s Crosby office.
Morecrofts has also awarded three new training contracts to Kate McEvoy, Alex Parkington and Cathryn McCorkindale, all three of whom are currently working within the private client department.
Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said: “Maureen has established herself as a leading practitioner in her field and we have been delighted to support her continued rise through the firm.
“This new role is deserved reward for her tireless commitment to delivering an outstanding level of service to our clients and leading the expansion of such a dedicated, talented team.”
Morecrofts Solicitors has offices across Merseyside in Woolton, Allerton, Crosby, Wirral and Liverpool city centre.
