A LAW firm has made two key appointments to its management team.

Harrogate-based Towers Legal, which was launched last September by former head of commercial litigation at McCormicks, James Martin, has brought on board Josephine Nylan as head of commercial property and Emma Clement as head of corporate and commercial Llaw. Ms Nylan has previously held positions in the commercial property departments of firms including Addleshaw Booth & Co and DLA. She was a partner at Keeble Hawson, Godloves and RadcliffesLeBrasseur before joining Towers. Ms Clement cut her teeth at the likes of Osborne Clarke, Eversheds and Chattertons.

Elsewhere in the legal sector, Leeds-based Blacks Solicitors, which has a specialist sport department, has appointed Yorkshire cricket captain, Andrew Gale, as its latest sports consultant.

Blacks managing partner Chris Allen said: “We are delighted that Andrew has agreed to be part of our team and represent the firm. Andrew will provide real industry knowledge to our cricket clients and supplement and support the expertise and industry knowledge we already have within our sports team.”

Meanwhile, Harrogate-based firm InTechnology, a provider of cloud and IT services, has made a new key appointment. InTechnology, which provides managed data and hosting services to a national portfolio of law firms, has appointed Gary Thomas as its new client account manager.

Mr Thomas, who has over 20 years’ IT experience mainly within the legal sector, joins the company from Irwin Mitchell where he was head of IT operations. He had both partner status and overall management of Irwin Mitchell’s IT and telecoms infrastructure.

Elsewhere, David Egerton has been appointed as branch manager at the Huddersfield branch of Leeds Building Society. He previously spent 24 years as regional operations manager for Lloyds Banking Group.

Philippa Bogle has been appointed as regional director with the Committed Network Foundation, which runs a UK-wide network of independent healthcare professionals and specialists. Ms Bogle was the founder chair of the Yorkshire branch of Women in Management and also worked previously as an independent organisational development consultant with The Christie specialist cancer trust in Manchester.
