A MORPETH firm of solicitors has appointed a new Partner.
Carr and Co, which has two other branches, has promoted associate solicitor Mark Lynn.
The 28-year-old joined in April 2007 as a trainee and is now head of the conveyancing department at all three branches.
He assists clients on buying, selling or transferring their home or business and specialises in Property Law. He is the only male member of the team of partners.
Mr Lynn said: “I’m thrilled with my new position at Carr and Co. Joining the partnership is a really exciting development in my career and it is fantastic to be rewarded for the hard work I have done over the past four years.
“I have worked alongside the existing Partners for some time now and I am not at all daunted by the prospect of joining the previously all female team.”
Senior Partner Valerie Wormald said: “Mark has proved himself as a fantastic solicitor and we are delighted to be able to make him a Partner.
“We are confident that he will make a fabulous business partner and a welcome addition to the management team.”
