Morecrofts Solicitors has recruited conveyancing solicitor Alison Love, who has joined from a position as head of residential conveyancing at Black Norman.
Love, who has worked in conveyancing across Merseyside for more than 30 years, will be based primarily in the firm’s Crosby office. She has also previously worked for regional law firms including Canter Levin & Berg, Maxwell Hodge and EAD Solicitors.
She said: “Morecrofts is recognised as one of the region’s best law firms, both from a client and employee perspective, so I’m very excited to be joining the team and I hope to help the property law department continue its recent growth.
“This is still a buoyant time for residential conveyancing and buyer confidence remains high in many areas, which has been further boosted by the first time buyer stamp duty incentive introduced in the last Budget. We are looking forward to being very busy for a long time to come.”
The firm also has offices in Liverpool city centre, Birkenhead, Woolton and Allerton.
Peter Pownall, head of property law at Morecrofts, said: “Our property team has grown exponentially over the past 18 months, with instructions from residential and commercial clients at an all-time high.
“We felt it was crucial to bring in a high quality, experienced practitioner to help sustain that trend and Alison undoubtedly fits the bill.”
