New year new start for law firm recruits

A Newcastle law firm has expanded with the appointment of two new staff to bolster their ranks. Smithson Law Firm have taken on Terence as part of the Residential and Commercial Property operations while Rachael Smurthwaite joins the Debt Recovery department from Watson Burton.

Michael Smithson, senior partner at Smithson Law Firm LLP, said: “We are committed to delivering the highest standards of client care and customer service. These recruits bring a combination of fresh blood, innovative thinking and technical legal excellence into Smithson Law Firm as the practice continues to go from strength to strength.

“Following the autumn’s credit crisis and as a result of the ongoing turbulent financial climate, we are seeing an increasing number of businesses focussing on debt recovery services. “Businesses are more than ever before scrutinising their sales legers and targeting errant debtors. We are poised to deliver successful results on their behalf giving our clients a competitive edge.”

Terence Robson said: “It is good to be part of this law firm whose ethos is one of ensuring excellent services to the client backed by up to date technology and IT I am delighted to be part of such an innovative and caring legal service.”

Rachael Smurthwaite said: “I look forward to maintaining relationships with the firm’s existing clients and to providing the excellent service that the firm’s clients have grown to expect. I also hope to be able to help bring new clients to the firm and extend our services.”
