ALLINGTON Hughes Solicitors has welcomed a new partner to its Chester-based firm.

Grisial Llewelyn has become the 12th partner at Allington Hughes, having been a solicitor at the firm for more than six years.

Grisial started with Allington Hughes as a trainee, and after completing two years of training she qualified as a solicitor, specialising in all aspects of family law.

Alison Brebner, managing partner of the firm, said: “Grisial has been a part of the family law team since completing her training with us in 2008.

“Since then, she has also become very involved in marketing and networking on behalf of the firm.

“The partners of Allington Hughes are therefore delighted to be welcoming Grisial to the partnership and wish her every success in her new management role.”

Grisial said: “Having enjoyed working at Allington Hughes for the past six years, I am looking forward to being a part of the future success and development of the firm.

“I think it is a tribute to the hard work of everyone at Allington Hughes that we are always moving forward, even in times of economic difficulty.”
