Chorley-based legal practice CG has appointed corporate lawyer Jane Haymes.
Jane was previously a partner at Napthens.
Her arrival further expands CG’s services, which now include corporate, commercial, banking and finance, business recovery, commercial property and employment law.
Stacey Turner, who co-founded CG with Louise Myers, said: “Jane is right at the very top of her profession — she’s an established and highly-respected name and any legal firm would want to have someone of her ability in their team.
“Her arrival is a real boost for us and puts us in a great position to win more business in the future.”
Jane added: “I was looking for a new challenge and I was attracted by the people at CG and the fresh approach taken by them. It’s a very dynamic, forward-thinking set up and I’m really excited about our future prospects.”
