Chester-based law firm Aaron & Partners has appointed Trish Randles as a new partner in its real estate team.
Randles joined from Walker Smith Way, where she was a partner in the commercial property department. She has expertise in commercial landlord and tenant work and will divide her time between Aaron & Partners' Chester and Shrewsbury offices.
Randles said: "Aaron & Partners has shown considerable growth in recent years, in particular in its real estate team. There is a definite improvement in the economy generally and the property sector in particular, and a real buzz in the market."
Andy Duxbury, chief executive of Aaron & Partners, said: "Trish brings with her a great deal of experience and expertise along with a notable reputation among property agents. This will further strengthen our real estate team at a time when demand for our services is growing."
Aaron & Partners employs over 100 people and has offices in Chester, Manchester and Shrewsbury.
