Ellisons Solicitors are pleased to announce the recruitment of interim Premises Manager, Jim Crowley, who has joined the firm for an initial four-month period.

Mr Crowley, who brings with him over 35 years’ experience, is a welcome addition to the firm. He will be tasked with the day-to-day premises management of the firm’s five offices, as well as assisting in recruiting a permanent full time Premises Manager.

Guy Longhurst, Senior Partner, said: ‘‘We are going through a period of change at Ellisons, which involves much investment into the firm, to ensure that we continue to meet the very high standards our clients have come to expect from us.

This year has already seen heavy investment into our IT infrastructure, with a digital transformation currently taking place. The next logical step for us was to recruit a full time, dedicated Premises Manager, who will be responsible for an effective office management service and strategy.’’

Jim Crowley, said: ‘‘Ellisons is a very well-known and respected law firm within the region, and I am pleased to be working here, albeit in the interim. I look forward to working with the firm across the five offices over the next few months and implementing positive changes as necessary.’’

Jim is one of many new starters to join Ellisons over the last year. The firm has welcomed 27 new members of staff in the last 12 months alone; this includes three Partners and many other lawyers and support staff.
