A Midlands law firm is extending its reach by transferring three key members of staff to its Wolverhampton office.
Martin-Kaye Solicitors has its head office in Telford, and now a trio of residential conveyancers are relocating to the Tettenhall Road branch as a direct result of increased business in the area.
Partner Simon Wagner said the move was part of the firm’s ongoing expansion plans which have also seen them open another satellite office in Shrewsbury.
“We’re keen to continue to grow our business in a structured and targeted way, and we’ve seen a real rise in the number of conveyancing clients in the wider Wolverhampton area, so it makes absolute sense for some of our property team to operate from there.
Partner and head of department Nita Patel said: “Our residential property division is renowned for its excellent customer service and for its efficient and effective advice, and it’s exciting to see our team building new strong links with clients all over the region.”
The conveyancers who will be relocating are Wendy Pullar (licensed conveyancer), Amandeep Siddoo (solicitor), and Ellesse Wilson (legal assistant). Partner and head of department, Nita Patel, will be dividing her time between the Wolverhampton and Telford offices.
Wendy has worked for Martin-Kaye for almost nine years and specialises in buying and selling properties, transfers of equity, and re-mortgages.
“I’m looking forward to working in Wolverhampton as it’s a great opportunity to build the business, and it’s a new challenge that will give me the chance to meet our clients in that area face-to-face thanks to our more convenient location.”
Amandeep has been a solicitor for over 15 years working for another legal firm in Shropshire as well as running her own business for a time. “I really enjoy conveyancing and have predominantly specialised in this area throughout my career – it’s always lovely to help people move into their new home.”
Ellesse is currently studying for her postgraduate diploma in legal practice after completing a law degree. “I can’t wait to get started at the Wolverhampton office and I’m looking forward to having more direct contact with the clients as they will be able to drop in rather than having to travel so far.”
