Stone King has appointed its 200th person as the Bath based law firm continues with ambitious plans to grow its regional and national legal teams.
Sean Knight, who joins Stone King as a paralegal in the trusts and estates team, was welcomed to the firm by Managing Partner Steven Greenwood.
Mr Knight’s arrival marks a major milestone for Stone King which has been providing legal advice to local people for more than 225 years.
The University of Bristol history graduate recently completed a legal practice course at the University of Law in London, a key part of his training to become a qualified solicitor. He will support the partners in Stone King’s trusts and estates team who advise clients on their wills, powers of attorney and other estate planning matters.
Mr Knight’s arrival is the latest in a raft of new appointments at Stone King which is ranked as a top tier firm in the 2014 Legal 500 guide to the UK’s best performing law firms and solicitors.
Mr Greenwood said: "We are delighted to welcome Sean to our expanding firm as we celebrate this major landmark in our 200-plus year history.” He went on to say “His arrival forms part of our on-going strategy to grow our regional and national law teams by recruiting the very best legal practitioners and the brightest graduates. We wish Sean and our other new starters every success in their careers with Stone King.”
