Yorkshire firm swoops to take 11-strong team from rivals

Fast-growing Yorkshire firm Switalskis announced this week that it has created a residential property team in its Sheffield office after swooping on a rival firm.

The firm has welcomed 11 people from Knights (formerly Keebles). Former Knights partner and head of residential property Bonita Wolfenden will lead the new team at Switalskis’ Sheffield office, supporting director and residential property department head Sarah Cookson. The team also comprises senior conveyancer Alison Clifton, licensed conveyancer Stefanie Kohler, trainee solicitor Eleanor Stothard, along with six paralegals and two support staff.

Wolfenden said: ‘Switalskis is making a name in Sheffield and has an excellent reputation. The opportunity to build a new team here in the city with Sarah’s backing and the support of the wider business is very exciting.’

The latest announcement comes three months after Switalskis expanded its South Yorkshire family and child care law department by welcoming Keebles’ Sheffield-based family law team.

Earlier this year the firm acquired personal injury specialist Atherton Godfrey, putting Switalskis into the top 150 practices in the country and making it the third largest firm solely based in Yorkshire.
