Amer Ali joined Blacks as a licensed conveyancer in the Direct conveyancing team in 2015 before becoming a trainee solicitor. As a newly qualified solicitor, Amer will continue to strengthen the conveyancing team, dealing with a broad range of services on sales, purchasing, freehold, leasehold and new builds.

Annie Beaumont joined in 2016 as a paralegal in the Wills & Probate team. As a qualified solicitor, Annie will advise clients on all aspects of Wills including inheritance tax, business property relief and asset protection, alongside handling estate administration.

Annie won Trainee of the Year at the Yorkshire Legal Awards 2019.

Finally, Fiona Barber joined as a paralegal in the Family team in 2017. Recently qualifying into the Commercial Dispute Resolution team, Fiona will deal with a range of commercial dispute matters including contractual, civil and commercial disputes, professional negligence and intellectual property.

They are all very bright individuals who are dedicated and demonstrably committed to the future vision of the Firm. I have no doubt that they will all go on to have very successful careers with us and contribute to the Firm’s consistent delivery of high quality client service within their respective teams.”
