CG Professional appoints partner to lead employment law team

Chorley-based law firm CG Professional has appointed Heather Aust as a partner to manage the employment law team.

Heather has gained significant experience since qualifying at Halliwells in 2008, and most recently worked for top 100 law firm Gateley.

CG has seen a growth in demand for its employment services with many companies looking for additional help and support due to the Covid-19 situation.

Heather's appointment sees her take responsibility for the employment law team, advising on day-to-day HR workplace issues and larger restructure and litigious matters, allowing founding partners Stacey Turner and Louise Myers to have a more strategic focus.

Stacey Turner, managing partner, said: "Heather’s track record in achieving results along with her ability to embed herself in client teams and become their trusted advisor is impressive and we’re very pleased to be welcoming her to the CG family.

"These have been unprecedented times for many companies, with lots of changes especially around staffing, for them to adjust to. This has in turn meant that many more companies have turned to us for help and advice."
