Morecrofts secures ten new hires across firm

MORECROFTS Solicitors has reinforced its property, family and litigation teams with a raft of senior appointments.

Christine Fisher has joined the firm as a solicitor in the property team after almost 30 years in the law and will be based primarily at its office in Crosby.

Fellow solicitor Derek Dawson arrives at Morecrofts’ city centre office with more than 20 years’ experience in commercial litigation and property dispute resolution, working on behalf of business owners and property developers.

Simon Higgs will work as a solicitor in the family law team across Morecrofts’ south Liverpool offices in Woolton and Allerton after joining from PDA Solicitors in Chester. He has worked in the law for more than 25 years and specialises in divorce and financial settlements.

Their appointments are complemented by the arrival of five new paralegals across those teams.

Erin Spadafora, Alex Battle and Kathy McQuillan join the family and litigation teams in Liverpool; meanwhile, the arrival of Jessie Sun and Liam Fitzgerald bolsters the firm’s property team in Allerton and its new Prescot office.

Liam Easson and Dominic Fayer have also been recruited as administration clerks in the Liverpool office.

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said: “Our client base and service offer both continue to expand, so it is crucial that we continue to attract the best talent to deliver on behalf of those clients.

“We have been able to bring in three incredibly experienced solicitors alongside a host of talented young lawyers, leaving us well placed to grow even more in the coming months and years.”
