George Coyle and John Ashworth
Rollits has made a new solicitor appointment with the recruitment of John Ashworth who successfully completed his training contract with the firm in September.
A former student at Hymers College and a University of Hull law graduate, John joined Rollits as a Trainee Solicitor in September 2016.
His “Period of Recognised Training” included a secondment to Hull 2017 City of Culture for seven months during which time he got valuable experience of legal work within the Culture and Creative Arts sector.
Based in the Hull office John will specialise in commercial dispute resolution work including disputed debt claims, property disputes and breach of contract claims.
George Coyle, Dispute Resolution partner at Rollits, comments: “We are delighted that John has joined our highly regarded Dispute Resolution team. Over the last two years he has proved himself to be a valued member of the Rollits team and I look forward to working with him and see him develop into the top class lawyer I know he will become.”
Rollits has recently been recommended in the Legal 500 publication as a TOP-TIER FIRM in Yorkshire & the Humber for the Commercial Litigation work it handles for its clients. The UK Legal 500 is an independent guide to law firms in the UK, based on in-depth market research, positive client feedback and interviews with lawyers, solicitors and barristers.
