Beaumont Legal appoints three directors in ambitious growth plan

Beaumont Legal has strengthened its position as one of the fastest-growing law firms in Yorkshire by appointing three new directors and increasing its staff count beyond 100 as part of the company’s strategy to become the UK’s largest provider of conveyancing services, while also developing other areas of its business.

Bolstering the company’s management expertise, the Wakefield-based firm has taken on Beverley Smith, who joins from a major logistics company in the position of Director of Human Resources. Paul Rayner becomes the company’s Director of Marketing and Communications after working on strategic campaigns with international brands while in London and Beaumont’s long-term Conveyancing Manager, Adele Barker, has been promoted to the newly-created role of Director of Conveyancing.

The firm is also looking to employ further solicitors, legal assistants and legal secretaries over the coming months to support its major conveyancing drive as well as developing other service specialisms of litigation, commercial property and private client services. Total staff numbers have already increased by more than 100% since the start of the 2013.

Already one of the largest conveyancing firms in Yorkshire with annual turnover now more than £4 million, Beaumont Legal announced earlier this year its target was to grow the conveyancing side of its business to become the largest volume provider in the UK within the next three years.

Partner and head of conveyancing at Beaumont Legal, Nick Masheder, said of the new appointments and latest recruitment drive: “These senior management appointments are a key part of our strategy to become the largest conveyancing firm in the UK within the next three years.

“Through our ongoing drive to recruit quality conveyancing solicitors and by securing substantial new partnering relationships we’ve grown incredibly fast over the past year. Our aims is always to provide the high level of service that today’s home buyers demand and these new appointments will enable us to accelerate our existing growth into 2014.”

Based at Paragon Business Village and tracing its history back more than 200 years, the company has grown in recent years through promoting web-based services as well as building quality solicitor-led teams to deliver fast, efficient and personal services for customers. This has led to the business being crowned the UK’s best law firm for conveyancing at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards earlier this year and receiving a highly commended accolade in the recent Yorkshire Lawyer Awards.
