CG appoints managing partner

Chorley-based law firm CG Professional has announced two new key appointments, including Benjamin Dredge as a managing partner and head of corporate.

Katy Parkinson also joins the firm as senior associate solicitor from Forbes. Katy specialises in employment law and is joining a well-established to team to assist with growing demand.

Stacey Turner, CG managing partner, said: "We’re incredibly excited to welcome Benjamin and Katy, even at this incredibly challenging time, to assist with our growth plans for 2020. Our ethos and culture are different to most firms. Our modern vision attracts the right calibre of lawyers, ensuring we’re able to give our clients a confident and professional level of service."

Benjamin joins the board from the Manchester office of Shoosmiths, and was shortlisted as a finalist for Young
Lawyer of the Year at the North West Young Professionals Award 2017.

He said: "There is so much potential for a more approachable, commercial and dynamic player in the regional market. There are all too many clients that don’t receive enough passion and enthusiasm for their business when reduced to one of hundreds of other clients who are simply attracted by a big city name.

"We want to deliver big city firm service levels, without the national firm overheads and combine it with a passionate and commercial approach to the advice and support we offer."
