Roythornes appoints experienced commercial litigation lawyer

Experienced commercial litigation lawyer, Desley Sherwin, has joined UK top 200 law firm Roythornes Solicitors.  

Desley has made the move from Chattertons Solicitors in Lincolnshire which sees her return to the firm where she completed her training more than 25 years ago.  

Dividing her time between the Roythornes head office in Spalding and the firm’s Alconbury office, associate solicitor Desley will become part of the commercial litigation and employment law team.

She said: “I’m really looking forward to this new challenge.– it’s a chance to be part of one of the 1,000 most influential companies in the UK and a top 200 law firm which has a fantastic reputation in the region as well as nationally.

“I’m going to be splitting my time between the Spalding and Alconbury offices in a bid to grow the Alconbury offering as it’s a relatively new base for Roythornes. The chance to work on large scale projects, the type that you would expect from a London firm, but in my home region is incredibly exciting.

“I’m also particularly interested in learning about different areas of agricultural law: Roythornes possesses a huge amount of expertise in this industry.”

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes Solicitors, added:

“Desley’s return to Roythornes shows how much we’ve grown as a firm over the last 30 years. As a lawyer, you no longer need to travel to a big city to work with national brands and that’s just one of the many things helping attract new talent.      

“Desley will play an important role in growing our offering in Alconbury and the surrounding areas. Following our acquisition of the highly respected Huntingdon firm Warrens Boyes and Archer, we have big plans for the office in 2019, starting with an evening of celebrations on Thursday 7 March. This will be an opportunity for existing and new clients to come and meet our Alconbury team as well as network with other like-minded professionals in an informal environment.”

Roythornes is a national law firm with strategically located offices across the Midlands and East Anglia. The practice has particular expertise in private client, agriculture, food and property sectors and has been listed for the past two years as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain by the London Stock Exchange.
