A law firm has made some new appointments.

Leah Groves, head of the healthcare team, is now a partner at Fisher Jones Greenwood, which has offices across Essex.

Previously a partner at Abrahams Dresden LLP in London, Leah came to FJG in July 2015 to establish the dentistry and healthcare team.

With more than 10 years’ experience, Leah understands the professional and commercial requirements of dentists and provides excellent service.

Mrs Groves said: “Having been with the firm for a short time, it is extremely satisfying to reach partnership level and I look forward to continuing to assist clients and to help the firm grow in the future.”

Paula Fowler, managing partner at FJG, said: “Since joining the firm, Leah has consistently strived to make her mark, an approach which is now paying dividends. “She is well respected by clients. “We look forward to the continued impact that Leah will bring to the firm over the coming years.”

FJG also celebrates two promotions with the appointment of two new associates; Paula Bland and Amy Herring.

Paula joined the firm in 1985 as an office junior and is now a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives working within the Conveyancing team, while Amy has progressed from paralegal in 2010 to qualifying as a solicitor in 2014. She is now a valued member of the wills and probate team
