North West law firm CG Professional has this week announced another senior appointment.
Heather Aust is joining CG as a Partner from top 100 firm Gateley PLC’s Manchester office. The appointment has been made to bolster an already well-established team to assist with an increased growth in demand. Heather will be managing the employment law team advising on day-to-day HR workplace issues and larger restructure and litigious matters, allowing founding partners Stacey Turner and Louise Myers to have a more strategic focus.
Providing support to clients across a wide range of industries Heather has gained significant experience since qualifying at Halliwells in 2008.
Heather said: “I’m incredibly excited to be taking on this new role. CG’s vision and growth since they established themselves just three years ago has been quite phenomenal and a testament to their work ethos and drive. Their modern approach differentiates them from many other law firms and I’m looking forward to being part of their growing, dynamic team.”
CG have seen a growth in demand for their employment services with many companies looking for additional help and support due to the COVID-19 situation.
Managing Partner Stacey Turner said: “Heather’s track record in achieving results along with her ability to embed herself in client teams and become their trusted advisor is impressive and we’re very pleased to be welcoming her to the CG family.
“These have been unprecedented times for many companies, with lots of changes especially around staffing, for them to adjust to. This has in turn meant that many more companies have turned to us for help and advice.
“We pride ourselves on offering the level of service usually restricted to big-city law firms, and for that, we need the right calibre of staff – Heather fits the bill perfectly. We’re extremely pleased that Heather is joining the team and her appointment is a further indication of CG’s ambitions for growth and excellence.”
