NEW talent is set to swell the ranks of the litigation team at a Blackburn law firm.

Rebecca Horne has joined the ranks of Napthens, from Taylors Solicitors.

She qualified in 2017 and spent time at a Manchester commercial law firm before her Lancashire switch.

David Bailey, partner and head of litigation at Napthens, said: "Rebecca’s background and specialisms mean she is well placed to advise our commercial clients on the wide range of disputes they may face now and in the future.

"Her appointment comes after the litigation department expanded with the appointments of solicitors James Freeman and Stewart Croft, who joined the team earlier in the year."
