A LAW firm with branches in Bolton and Bury has expanded its team with a new senior appointment who brings "decades of experience."

Fiona Jackson, who has now joined Clough & Willis Solicitors, will be leading the firm's conveyancing service at its Little Lever office.

Ms Jackson brings over 30 years of legal experience, qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1995, and has previously worked at Bury based law firm Crompton Halliwell and at AFG.

She said: "I am incredibly excited to be joining Clough & Willis at what is an exciting time of growth for the business.

"I am now looking forward to become an integral part of the team and helping to expand its client base across the region."

In her new role Ms Jackson will focus on residential conveyancing, including both sale and purchases, as well as more complex matters including lease extensions, purchase of freehold estates, adverse possessions, and title reconstructions.

Her appointment follows that of Claire Birch who joined the department as a residential conveyancer in May.

Clough & Willis partner and head of property Lorraine Stratton-Webb said: "Fiona brings with her decades of experience which will be a big asset for our clients and the firm.

"Her insight, technical knowledge and contacts are first class and we are delighted that she is now part of the team."
