Clarke Willmott’s Manchester office has further expanded its litigation department with the appointment of a new trainee solicitor.

Abigail Dwyer joins the firm from Laytons LLP to complete her training contract in the commercial and private client litigation team.

At Clarke Willmott Abigail will be focussing on dispute resolution, specialising in company contractual disputes, unfair prejudice claims, derivative action and injunctions. She will also deal with professional negligence claims, defamation and contentious probate claims.

Abigail is an active member of the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group, Manchester Young Solicitors Group, Junior Chamber International and Manchester Young Professionals.

John Flint, partner at Clarke Willmott, said: “Abigail is an extremely impressive trainee lawyer and has shown a real passion for law both in her training contract and her out-of-work endeavours.

“The commercial and private client litigation team is very busy and Abigail’s extra pair of capable hands will help us continue to provide the professional and quality service our clients expect.

“Abigail’s appointment comes after several new appointments last year and we look forward to expanding the team further in 2020.”

In late 2019 Christie Johnson joined Clarke Willmott’s litigation department as a Solicitor and Sophie Woodley joined as a Paralegal.

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
