Greenaway Scott has made two senior appointments at its recently launched Swansea office.
The award-winning firm has welcomed Leanne Thomas and Aimee Thomas to the new office, which was established earlier this year within the heart of Swansea University’s multimillion-pound Bay Campus.
Leanne joins Greenaway Scott from Eversheds Sutherland, where she worked as a corporate solicitor. She will lead the corporate team at the new Swansea office in the senior role of associate director.
Aimee, has joined the Swansea team from Capital Law. She will work with the corporate team and has joined as a corporate support lawyer with a focus on commercial property.
They will be joining IP lawyer Rhys ap Gwent, corporate commercial executive Catherine James, and commercial and IP lawyer Chelsea Parker, alongside Rhian Osborne who leads the Swansea office.
The office opening marks an “exciting new phase for the firm,” which already has offices in Oxford and Cardiff, according to senior director and co-founder of Greenaway Scott, Rhian Osborne.
She said: “We are thrilled to be adding to the wealth of talent in the Greenaway Scott family, and would like to formally welcome our new recruits to the team. We believe they will be an asset within the new office and will certainly strengthen our offering.”
Miss Osborne, who obtained a Neuroscience degree and Graduate Diploma of Law from Swansea University, added that she was thrilled to be taking on the new challenge.
