A leading Corporate Partner has joined Knights as the business continues its growth in Carlisle.

Partner Sam Lyon brings more than 20 years’ experience, bolstering Knights’ corporate team, which is now the largest in Cumbria.

Previously Head of Corporate at a regional firm, Sam also spent more than six years in-house at Cumberland Building Society and brings a wealth of expertise to Knights as a result.

Partner Sam Lyon said:

“Knights is a growing business and it’s a great time to join. I’m looking forward to being part of a national team with great experience in all the key regions of the country – including here in Cumbria. I can’t wait to get started.”

Sam’s arrival coincides with the appointment of Real Estate solicitor Lois Huntington.

They both join a growing team in Carlisle that works alongside Knights’ 1,500-strong team of colleagues in the largest regional legal and professional services business operating outside London.

Client Services Director Lisa Shacklock said:

“Sam and Lois are brilliant additions to our team. We’re so pleased that within eight months of arriving in Carlisle we’re already growing – and we’re keen to add more talented people. It’s an exciting time as we get ready for further growth.”

With 23 offices nationwide, Knights is ranked within the top 50 UK law firms by revenue – providing multiple services to business clients alongside premium advisory services to private individuals.
