Muckle LLP is further expanding its Agriculture, Estates and Private Client team by appointing solicitor, Lois Dokubo, the latest in a string of new appointments for the team.

Lois, who qualified in February 2022, will handle a range of legal matters such as landed estate management, deed of easements and commercial leases, rural property finance and sales. She will also be assisting clients with rural conveyancing advice.

Before joining Muckle, Lois worked and carried out her legal training contract at two well-known North East law firms, building valuable experience in delivering exceptional client service.

Passionate about helping and giving back to the community, Lois has previously volunteered at a community grocery store and continues to volunteer at her Sunday school as part of her local church’s community outreach initiatives.

Lois said: “I’ve only been at Muckle for a short amount of time, but I already feel like I have a strong sense of belonging within the team and wider business.

“As I’ve been settling in and getting to grips with my role, I’ve mainly been working in high-value rural conveyancing as that’s where my past expertise lies.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know my clients while also handling a diverse array of legal matters within the agriculture and private client sector.”

David Towns, Head of Agriculture, Estates and Private Client at Muckle, added: “It’s fantastic to welcome Lois to our rapidly growing team.

“With extensive experience in delivering great results for clients, along with her dedication to the community, she will be an excellent asset to the team and business.”

The Agriculture, Estates and Private Client team has been enjoying a period of exponential growth over the last 12 months, including three senior hires and expansion into Cumbria, coupled with significant year-on-year increases in turnover.
