CG&Co has established its own in-house legal team to ensure it consistently provides clients with the most comprehensive and responsive service. The firm, specialising in insolvency and property receivership, has appointed, Amy Crighton as its first in-house solicitor.
CG&Co‘s partners took the decision to create the new department to provide clients with specialist legal guidance as swiftly as possible. This new department aims to prevent interest on bridging loans accruing more than is absolutely necessary.
In addition, CG&Co witnessed a 40% increase in demand for its property receivership services over the past year. This resulted in it engaging costly external lawyers with greater frequency.
“I leapt at the opportunity to be a part of such a thriving and fast-growing business as CG&Co when it arose. After meeting with the partners, I realised that this newly created role would be exceptionally rewarding both professionally and personally; given the diversity of the work that takes place here,” explained Crighton, who is now in post.
“Building CG&Co’s in-house legal team from scratch is undoubtedly going to be a challenge – but I know that it will ensure we can provide clients with the right service at the best price.”
Prior to joining CG&Co, Crighton worked in the Insolvency and Corporate Recovery team at law firm DWF, where she was recognised by the independent Legal 500 ranking guide as a “key lawyer”.
Crighton has advised a variety of clients in connection with high profile insolvencies and receiverships. This includes the administrators of a Formula One team.
She brings substantial experience of acting for the receivers of property developers to her new role as CG&Co’s in-house solicitor.
A Partner’s Input
CG&Co partner Daniel Richardson said: “We knew as soon as we met Amy that she would be a perfect fit for this role at CG&Co and have tasked her with creating our own legal team. Her expertise and experience enhance the service we provide clients. We’re now able to provide legal input more quickly and cost-effectively. With the volume of property appointments handled by CG&Co constantly increasing, having an in-house legal team means that we’re able to provide a comprehensive service that’s totally responsive.”
