Alconbury-based top 150 law firm Roythornes Solicitors has brought in two specialists to bolster its private client and commercial property teams.
Ayesha Brown, a senior associate with more than 25 years of industry experience, will be offering comprehensive and expert advice on all aspects of private client work including estate and succession planning, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, estate and trust administration.
Joining her is newly-qualified solicitor Serena Kang, who will be overseeing a range of responsibilities associated with the ownership, sale and occupancy of commercial properties within Cambridgeshire and beyond.
Ayesha said: “I’ve always enjoyed working with clients in the agricultural sector so to join Roythornes, which is highly respected and has a justly, proud reputation as one of a relatively small number of firms in the sector with the knowledge and capability to provide a full service to the rural community, is an exciting move for me. Roythornes takes pride in its excellent client care and I feel privileged to be part of the team and available to support its clients and families through significant change in their lives.”
Moving north from a Bedford-based firm, Serena was attracted to Roythornes due to its work with a number of high-net-worth clients.
Serena said: “Despite carving a niche early into my legal career and pursuing experience in the real estate industry, I am still learning and realise the value of opportunities that different practices can offer. From my first contact with Roythornes I was confident that it’s a firm intent on ensuring progression for its staff and providing the best for its clients, so it's established position within Cambridgeshire is unsurprising. I hope to bring my own specialist knowledge to the firm and continue to develop.”
The arrival of Ayesha and Serena marks Roythornes’ 56th and 57th addition in 2022 across its five offices in the Midlands and East Anglia.
Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, said: “We work with everyone from major blue-chip companies and established family businesses to new startups and individuals so hiring professionals with specific industry knowledge and an awareness of the opportunities within the region is key to ensuring our services are the best they can be. Ayesha and Serena are both fantastic recruits to the private client and commercial property teams in Alconbury and we look forward to seeing them thrive while at the firm.”
