Lincoln law firm strengthens its team with three new appointments
Wilkin Chapman’s Lincoln office has added to its expanding team, with three new appointments. There are now 83 staff at the offices based on Brayford Wharf.
Joining the domestic property team, solicitor Fiona Houlden specialises in residential sales and purchases, remortgages and new build properties. She completed her studies at Northumbria University in 2013 and qualified in 2016 at a firm in Oxfordshire. She has moved back to her home county of Lincolnshire joining Wilkin Chapman and her expertise will benefit all clients going through their property transactions.
Fiona is joined by Faiz Mohammed, who has joined the corporate and commercial team as a solicitor from a regional firm in the south east region. Faiz qualified in 2012 and specialises in corporate advice, mergers and acquisitions, company law and commercial law. He attained a distinction on the LPC from the Nottingham Law School. Being closer to the region’s breadth of flying facilities and the strong corporate team was a big draw for Faiz in joining Wilkin Chapman, as in his spare time he is learning how to fly light air craft at Cranfield Flying School.
Finally, Megan Gell has joined the personal injury department as a paralegal. Her appointment adds to the strong team in Lincoln where she will deal with low-value Road Traffic Accidents, public liability, and employers’ liability claims.
Speaking of the appointments, Andrew Holt, Branch Partner at the Lincoln office, commented: “After a record breaking 2016, we are delighted to be welcoming in 2017 with an expanding team and strengthened expertise. It’s very encouraging for the region that we’re able to attract legal talent from far and wide. I am very much looking forward to seeing our new members settle into life at Wilkin Chapman and life in Lincolnshire.”
