A Brighton law firm has taken on 13 new staff with more recruits lined up in the coming weeks.
Mayo Wynne Baxter, the solicitors, in Dyke Road, Brighton, is taking on the newcomers to cope with a growing workload.
Among the arrivals is Carmen Calvo-Couto, who comes from Spain and has joined the international property team.
She has an LLM – or Master of Laws – degree from Sussex University and is dual qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales and as an abogado in Spain.
Chris Randall, chief executive, said: “It’s very encouraging that we are continuing to grow as a firm and attract such a high calibre of employees.”
The expanding firm also has offices in Lewes, Seaford, Eastbourne, East Grinstead and Forest Row.
