Three new senior associates among latest promotions at Morecrofts

Morecrofts Solicitors has promoted three senior associate solicitors within its private client and litigation teams.

Vicki Morris and Michael Gossage, who both completed their training contracts with Morecrofts earlier in their careers, join highly experienced litigation specialist Derek Dawson, who joined the firm in 2017, in stepping up to the new role.

Morecrofts is also delighted that all three of its recently qualified solicitors have accepted roles within the firm. Aaron Ocquaye qualifies into the personal injury & clinical negligence team in Liverpool city centre, Hannah Beardmore joins the family law team in Wirral and Josh Bourke qualifies into private client, based at the firm’s Woolton office.

Costs draftsperson Katie Ward has been promoted to manager of the firm’s thriving fee unit.

Meanwhile, Faye Kavanagh and Freja Hopwood are set to begin their training contracts in the private client and family law teams, respectively.

Last year, Morecrofts created a new management training programme aimed at equipping lawyers with wider business skills such as finance, HR and compliance, and providing clear senior pathways of succession within the business.

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts Solicitors, said:

“Vicki, Michael and Derek have each played a significant role in the continued success of our business, both in financial terms and the quality of our service delivery to clients.

“These latest senior promotions offer further evidence of our commitment to helping excellent lawyers to achieve their professional ambitions with us and gain the experience and expertise needed to take the business forward into the future.

“With every promotion and appointment, we continue to create a law firm with a unique identity and personality; one which empowers individuals to pursue a successful career within a supportive environment and positive team culture, while maximising their freedom to enjoy their personal time away from work.”
