Hunt & Coombs boosts legal team to meet demand
Commercial property and specialist crime and mental health lawyers appointed to legal team

We are delighted to announce the appointment of a commercial property solicitor to join our thriving Commercial Property Team, as demand for our commercial services continues to grow. We are also delighted to welcome two specialist crime and mental health lawyers to our well-respected Crime and Mental Health Team.

Laura Wilcox joined the Commercial Team from a regional firm and comes with commercial property experience as well as excellent qualifications. Laura advises a broad range of clients including individuals, partnerships and limited companies on all commercial property-related issues.

Laura commented on her move "I am delighted to have joined the growing commercial team at Hunt & Coombs, which is renowned for its exceptional client service. I am looking forward to the opportunity to continue to develop my career at such an established and well respected firm."

Sandra Icheke joined the Mental Health Team in January. Sandra qualified as a solicitor in 2018 and has concentrated on mental health law since. She is passionate in ensuring that vulnerable persons are heard and her work covers advising patients on their rights under the Mental Health Act; their prospects of success at the Mental Health Tribunal; representation at meetings and hearings; and liaising with medical teams on best outcomes for clients.

Faith Rowan joined the firm in November after qualifying as a solicitor in March 2020. Faith is a higher rights advocate and represents clients at the magistrates' court and the police station. Faith trained and qualified at a firm in London and prior to this, worked as a criminal defence paralegal managing a caseload of serious and complex cases.

We are very pleased to be able to welcome Laura, Sandra and Faith to the firm. Although this is a difficult time for everyone, it is an exciting time to join Hunt & Coombs and we look forward to working with them. We work hard to exceed the expectations of our clients and the growth in all areas of the firm is an indication of the level of service and commitment we give to our clients.
