Reading Time: 2 minutes

We have appointed three new directors in the second phase of a significant restructure of the firm’s management.

Wills and probate specialist Rebecca Bisby, licensed conveyancer Amanda Hewson and clinical negligence solicitor Wayne Walker, will also each lead their respective departments.

All three were born and educated in East Yorkshire and are examples of Williamsons Solicitors’ commitment to investing in local talent.

They join fellow operational and finance directors Neil Waterhouse and John Auld whose appointments were announced in January, along with established owner-directors Sarah Clubley and Jane Cousins.

The new seven-strong leadership team will develop and implement the firm’s growth plans, which include operational enhancement, service and staff development.

Rebecca Bisby, who is a chartered fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives, said: “Our hugely successful firm still has so much potential, and it is exciting to explore the opportunities with such a strong leadership team.”

Wayne Walker, who a recognised expert in medical negligence dealing with awards ranging from a few thousand pounds to the multiple millions, said that he was proud of the achievements of his department and the firm as a whole. “I am looking forward to playing a more strategic role and making a significant contribution to the development of our services,” he said.

Amanda Hewson, who joined the firm as a school leaver in 2004, said: “It is thrilling to be able to lead the department and to be made a director. The personal service provided to clients from committed staff has been a key to our success and I want to assist in building on this strength.”

Owner-director Sarah Clubley, who is also head of Williamsons’ family and childcare department, said that the refreshed leadership team was bringing new energy and perspectives to the firm. “I warmly welcome Wayne, Rebecca and Amanda to the board to join myself, Jane, Neil and John. Our new team will be instrumental in securing continued development and success as we look after the legal interests of the people of East Yorkshire.”
