Two new promotions at Farleys Solicitors

North West law firm Farleys Solicitors has announced their next round of promotions, following another year of growth across the region.

Solicitor Ben Leech and solicitor advocate Rebecca Fairclough have both been promoted to associate partners.

Ben, who specialises in criminal law and is based out of the firm’s Blackburn office, has worked at Farleys since 2015 having qualified as a solicitor in 2005. Ben represents clients during police station interviews as well as during trials at the Crown Courts and Magistrates Courts.

Ben commented: “It’s nice to receive recognition from the partners. I look forward to building on the foundations that have been set down over the past 4 years.”

Rebecca Fairclough originally joined the firm in 2009 and worked in the Civil Litigation department. After some time away from the firm, Rebecca returned to Farleys in 2018 to join the Commercial Litigation department in Manchester. Rebecca has a breadth of knowledge including commercial drafting but she specialises in contractual disputes, complex debt recovery, and professional negligence litigation.

On her promotion to associate partner, Rebecca commented: “I am grateful for the partners to have recognised my work with this promotion. This is a huge honour. I am excited about my future at Farleys and how we can progress and continue delivering a great service to our clients.”

Managing partner Ian Liddle added: “We’re delighted with the appointments of Ben and Rebecca as Associate Partners at Farleys.  It is a recognition of the commitment which they have both made to delivering a service to their clients which surpasses expectations and their role as leaders among their peers. 

“As a firm we place great reliance on growth from within and it is always really satisfying to see our young solicitors making that next leap in their career progression.  Ben and Rebecca are excellent solicitors and have a bright future ahead.”
