Helen Howard joins the team headed by partner Geoff Rogers from a law firm in the north east and brings in-depth expertise in general and corporate crime work.
Geoff Rogers said: “Our case load is increasing daily, due in part to an increase in fraud cases during the economic downturn, and Helen’s experience in dealing with a wide range of criminal matters, from murder to fraud, will prove an asset to the department.”
Helen, aged 29, grew up in Leeds and graduated with a degree in Law from the University of Birmingham. After a gap year teaching English at Fuzhou University in China, she completed her legal qualifications at the College of Law in York.
She trained with a London firm before being seconded to the Birmingham office of a national trade union firm where she dealt solely with union clients.
She has handled a wide range of cases, particularly those involving youths and vulnerable adults.
Helen has a good working knowledge of Polish and is a member of the Duty Solicitor Scheme. She said: “I am delighted to be joining McCormicks. I have wanted to work with the firm since I was 15 when I did a work placement nearby and became aware of their reputation.”
