The Cardiff office of Clarke Willmott LLP has appointed a new commercial property paralegal as it continues to grow on the back of a strong start to 2018.

The office offers legal expertise across the commercial property, social housing, banking and finance, planning and construction sectors.

The arrival of Carla Sloman has taken the number of people working in the Cardiff office, which is headed by Vicky Kells, to 15.

The Cardiff University student has moved from London where she worked within the legal department for Warner Brothers drafting agreements and contracts for actors and those involved in the film industry.

She will now support Vicky Kells and Clare Gregory as the firm continues to grow its commercial and social housing offering.

Vicky said: 'The appointment of Carla shows how strong our position is as a leading legal firm in Cardiff and Wales and I am delighted she has joined us at such a busy and exciting time for the business.

'We’ve got an established team here in the Cardiff office which has seen sustained growth in terms of clients and staff members and the expertise we have in all areas of the firm means we are well placed to deliver outstanding results.'

Carla added: 'I loved my time in Cardiff when at university and it’s great to be back. I’ll be looking to develop my expertise and confidence while assisting the team and working towards qualifying as a solicitor.'
