Law firm expands corporate team


Following a 30% growth in corporate business over the last year, Stephens Scown has recruited two more solicitors to its Truro office to meet client demand.

Leading employment law specialist Verity Slater has joined the firm as a partner. Slater is well known for her employment law expertise, having headed up the employment team at local firm Follett Stock.

McAuley, who was previously at Coodes, will be working on a range of issues for clients including commercial contracts, partnerships and business purchases and sales.

Richard Baker, head of Stephens Scown’s Truro office, said: “This is an exciting time for our corporate team, with many new client wins. Verity and Kirsty have both impressed us with their legal knowledge and focus on excellent client service. I’m sure they will be a fantastic asset to us and provide first class expert advice to our clients.”
