West Yorkshire firm Schofield Sweeney has strengthened its litigation team with the recruitment of two newly qualified solicitors.

The appointment of Alannah Crux, who is based in the firm’s Bradford office, and Kate Knight who is based in Leeds, brings the team up to 19 fee earners, including six partners.

Crux and Knight joined Schofield Sweeney from the Leeds practices of Michael Lewin Solicitors and LCF Law, respectively.  Both will specialise in commercial litigation and work closely with other members of the litigation team.

Jim Staton, head of litigation at Schofield Sweeney, said: “We are delighted to appoint both Alannah and Kate to the team which is now one of the largest in West Yorkshire following the recruitment of three new partners, Leo Jones-Rowe, Gary Ashton and Matt Fiddler during 2017.”

“We are building on the team’s successful 2017 and with the recruitment of Alannah and Kate, we believe that 2018 will see our upward trend continue.”

Crux said: “I am delighted to join a successful and expanding team and am looking forward to a busy year ahead.”
