New Face for Criminal Law Team
Harrogate’s leading criminal law firm, McCormicks Solicitors, has appointed a new member to its Crime and Fraud Department.
Kate Develly joins the practice as a Criminal Law Executive and will assist Partner Peter Minnikin and Associate Solicitor Brian Nuttney in all aspects of Criminal work and client care.
Kate graduated from the University of Lincoln with a joint honours degree in Criminology and English before embarking on a nine-year career with the police. She then helped her husband to establish his own business before completing the Graduate Diploma of Law followed by the Legal Practice Course with Masters, in which she gained a distinction, at the University of Law in Leeds.
She said: “I think my previous experience gives me an in-depth insight into the criminal justice system from both sides of the fence and I look forward to using this perspective in my new role.”
Peter Minnikin said: “We are very pleased to welcome Kate to what is a busy department working with clients who are often at a very difficult time in their lives.”
McCormicks is the only firm in Harrogate to be recognised for its Crime work in the latest edition of Chambers UK 2022.
