Frettens recruit SIX new team members

Posted on: 25/07/2022

Frettens are proud to welcome six fresh faces into our growing team, as the firm continues to prosper.

Our new people

Joanna Weller (second row, centre) has re-joined the firm as a Chartered Legal Executive in our Conveyancing Team, and will work closely with Clare Hallett.

Conveyancing Paralegal  Becky Langley (top left) re-joins the firm and Edward Carter (top, centre) also joins the Conveyancing Team as an administrator, serving as the first port of call for new enquiries.

Our Leasehold Property Team has been bolstered by the addition of Lucie Luther (bottom left) and we have also brought on Philippa Rawlinson (bottom right) and Katelyn Webster (top right) as Legal Secretaries, who will support our Dispute Resolution and Family teams respectively.

Matthew Fretten on our new arrivals

Managing Partner Matthew Fretten said: “We’re currently in a period of expansion, and it’s great to mark this continued growth with several new faces in key positions.

The addition of six new team members in such quick succession, coupled with another recent round of promotions, shows we are proving to be a genuine alternative to the larger regional firms.

These new team members have an important role to play in maintaining and improving upon the firm’s recent success and I look forward to welcoming them onboard.”

Property Department growth

Of the new recruits, four will slot into our property department.

Matthew continues “The business has grown equally across all departments in recent years, with property being the latest department to see that growth realised in the form of these arrivals.”

Becky Langley on re-joining the firm

Becky said: “I am excited to re-join the team and am so pleased to see how the business has grown during my time away from the firm.
Frettens have given me a warm welcome and I’m looking forward to being part of an ever-expanding firm.”

Becky will use her previous experience as a paralegal, and estate agent, to work alongside Michelle Petersen and assist her with a growing workload.

Lucie Luther on starting at Frettens

Lucie said: “I have been welcomed by the team here at Frettens and have been so impressed with the positive outlook of everyone here.
There is a great focus on succession planning and opportunities for progression.

I am looking forward to being part of a team with the ambition to grow the business and develop individuals for the benefit of the firm and our clients”

The addition of Lucie and Edward allow us to fill some gaps following both Hannah Faith and Jade Baker’s promotions earlier this month, as they stepped up to Paralegal and Executive respectively.

Joanna Weller on Frettens

Joanna said: “I am very pleased to return to Frettens, a modern and innovative law firm, and am excited for what the future holds.”

Joanna has worked in Residential Conveyancing for over 14 years, gaining experience in everything from sale and purchase to remortgaging and transfer of equity. Her vast knowledge will certainly be a great asset to the department.

Careers at Frettens

We believe in investing in people. Whether that’s bringing on new, bright and ambitious faces; or giving existing staff the opportunity to shine.

We are still looking to expand, with open positions in a variety of different departments across the firm.
If you’re interested in working somewhere that is trusting, communicative, offers opportunity for career progression and is a little different, then look no further.

You can view our current vacancies here or, if you can’t find the role for you, you can get in touch with our Operations Manager Catharine Snow here.
