One of Norfolk’s oldest law firms has welcomed four new faces to the team.

Newcomers Gerald Bloye, Abigail Reynolds, Maria Endall and Diane Raven have joined Hayes and Storr solicitors, which was established in 1775.

The firm now has more than 100 employees across the region with offices at the Old County Court in King’s Lynn as well as Hunstanton, Fakenham, Swaffham, Wells, Holt and Sheringham.

Mr Bloye and Miss Reynolds have joined the civil litigation team, Mrs Endall has strengthened the family department and Mrs Raven has joined the property department at Swaffham. 

Anissa Hallworth, director and head of litigation, said: “The addition of Gerald, Abigail, Maria and Diane to our firm reflects the growth of Hayes and Storr and our intention to continue offering a fantastic service to our existing and new clients.

“Each new lawyer brings with them exceptional skill, impressive professional credentials, and a history of working on complex cases with proven results.”

Mr Bloye has worked as a civil litigator for more than 40 years, and Miss Reynolds joined from a top 200 law firm in Peterborough where she worked for seven years.

Mrs Endall joins the family department and specialises in working with children and private law child cases.

Mrs Raven specialises in residential conveyancing, property  purchases and sales, transfer of equity, land and plot sales and has worked in conveyancing since her first job as a legal secretary at a local law firm. She qualified as a lawyer in 1995.
