Leading law firm GHP Legal has strengthened its team once more, this time with the appointment of two new paralegals.

The firm, one of the largest independent law firms in the region, has appointed Deon Hayward to support lawyers in the Family Department of both its Wrexham and Oswestry offices and Molly Drake, who will be based in the Civil Litigation, Personal Injury and Dispute Resolution department at Wrexham.

Both new members of staff were born and brought up locally to the offices where they are now working, continuing an employment trend for the firm which employs almost one hundred people across five offices in Wrexham, Oswestry, Chirk and Llangollen.

Announcing the latest appointments, which reflect a continuing growth pattern for GHP Legal, Group Practice Manager, Nicola Thomas, said: “Since the firm’s original inception forty nine years ago there seems to have been an extraordinary number of staff members who have returned to their local roots.

“Despite being classed as one of the top 500 law firms in England and Wales and constantly striving to offer new and better services, GHP Legal has retained the down to earth approach that has earned it the loyalty of both clients and staff alike over many years. People feel comfortable dealing with us and that is important.”
