Employment team boost for Blackburn office

The employment team based in the East Lancashire office of law firm Napthens is expanding.

Solicitor Claire Howarth, who joined the Lancashire law firm earlier this year, will now be based in Blackburn working closely with Employment partner Oliver McCann.

The move has been made to meet increased demand from clients in the area.

Claire has experience advising on all aspects of employment law, but specialises in areas including restructuring and redundancy, guiding employers through the complex redundancy consultation process.

Employment partner Oliver McCann said: “We are seeing a real increase in demand for specialist employment advice from employers across East Lancashire and our client base continues to grow, in particular through take-up of our employer protection scheme HR3. “Claire’s move to the Blackburn office further strengthens our employment team and ensures we continue to provide high quality advice and services to existing and new clients at a local level.”
