Leading regional law firm Rix & Kay has announced a number of new hires as it continues to grow its business across the region and offer enhanced services to clients. The announcement confirms the hire of two new solicitors, three new trainee solicitors and five other legal professionals.

Both Georgina Henderson and Jessica Pointing joined the firm as solicitors at the start of 2024.

Georgina Henderson joins Rix & Kay’s Commercial Property team and is based in the firm’s Brighton & Hove office. Georgina joins from regional firm Mayo Wynne Baxter.

Jessica Pointing joins Rix & Kay’s Private Client team and is based in the firm’s Uckfield office. Jessica has more than five years’ experience of working in private client and joins from national firm Irwin Mitchell.

Commenting on the firm’s latest hires, Richard Cripps, Managing Partner said,

“I am delighted to welcome Georgina and Jessica to our team. Their decision to join us aligns perfectly with our values of being Committed, Expert, and Transparent. Both individuals embody the qualities we seek in professionals who can truly make a significant and positive impact on both our clients and our business.

We are dedicated to fostering a workplace that upholds our values, providing a supportive environment where every team member can thrive, regardless of their job title. Central to our commitment are robust training programs and mentoring initiatives that unlock the full potential of our staff. Additionally, our embrace of hybrid and flexible working options underlines our belief in promoting well-being and enabling our people to work in ways that suit them best. This approach not only cultivates an inclusive and authentic culture but also contributes to better business outcomes.

“The success of our approach is evident, and we are excited to announce the upcoming appointment of other senior hires very soon.”

Rix & Kay’s latest hires follow an exceptionally busy year for the firm that has seen no less than eight other professionals join the firm in the last six months.

In October the firm appointed three new trainee solicitors with Morgan Prior, Jordan Ismail and Jonathan Laws all commencing a two-year training contract.

Rix & Kay also boosted its Residential Property team with the recruitment of three new conveyancing professionals and paralegals. Bishoy Amin, Sinead McGeady and Charles Hincks all recently joined the firm. The firm’s Private Client team has also welcomed two new joiners: Michaela Hill as a probate executive and Jack Gould as a paralegal.

Earlier in 2023, the firm announced the lateral hire of Family partner, Rebecca Jones, who joined Rix & Kay from Brachers, alongside other new hires including Jessica Blackmore and Leah Norton who joined the firm’s Private Client team; Fatu Keita Mbalo who joined the firm’s Corporate Team; and Kandice Arriola who joined the firm’s Commercial Property team.
