Black Country law firm Enoch Evans has expanded its team with five new appointments.

Katie Baker-Clifton joins the employment team as a solicitor, having specialised in the field since 2009.

Her caseload has included non-contentious advisory work for both corporate and private clients through to complex contested employment tribunal cases.

Amy Smith has joined the childcare team and will be providing advice and support to clients who are involved in disputes concerning children, in particular helping parents involved in care proceedings and injunction applications.

Managing partner David Evans said: "Recruiting experienced specialists is becoming increasingly difficult so we are really pleased to announce we have been able to attract five experienced and talented individuals to add to our expanding teams of expert advisers."
