Head of trust services appointed at law firm in bid to aid growth


Law firm Roythornes Solicitors has appointed a new head of trust services to support the private client team.

Carolyn Byrne joins the team from Shoosmiths and will be responsible for delivering the private client team’s strategic aims over the next few years, securing trustee compliance and profitable growth for the firm.

Byrne will be dividing her time between the firm’s Spalding headquarters and its Nottingham office. On her appointment, Byrne said: “I’m excited to be joining such a well-respected team and I am looking forward to growing the Roythornes trust offerings as it is a clear area for expansion.

“My role will include overseeing the creation and maintenance of the trust database. I can’t wait to utilise my experience to help develop these key areas, as well as the private client team and also the Roythornes’ presence across the East Midlands and Anglia.”

Roythornes is a top 150 national law firm with strategically located offices in Alconbury, Nottingham, Peterborough and Spalding.

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes, added: “We are delighted to welcome Carolyn to the private client team. Her appointment will really help evolve the practice and, in particular, develop the trust law sector as we expand the range of services that we offer to clients.

“We have a long-term approach to client relationships, investing time in getting to know our clients and their businesses over many years. This means we can anticipate and deal with complex and challenging issues that really matter – not just to the success of the businesses themselves but to the wellbeing of the families that depend on them.

“I have every faith that Carolyn will be a fantastic addition to the team and our long-term strategy for growth.”
