New partners appointed at Hibberts Solicitors

Created by

Cheshire and Shropshire-based law firm Hibberts LLP has made 3 partner level appointments to its leadership team.

The promotions now mean women partners make up over 50% of the partnership, reflecting the changing face of the legal profession.


Gemma Ambrose, from Haslington, began at Hibberts in 2007 and qualified as a solicitor in 2010 having studied law at Keele University.

She said: “Although I originally qualified as a barrister, I enjoy the client contact and I love working with generations of families to organise their wills, power of attorney and probate matters.

 “Everyone works as a team at Hibberts, and I think that ethos can be felt throughout the firm and by our clients. They appreciate the high level of service we provide and come back to us again and again for advice and legal support.”

Claire Dobson, from Warrington, joined Hibberts three years ago and is based at the Tarporley office.

She said: “I came to Hibberts as I knew there were lots of opportunities here and I love the Tarporley area. We have a great relationship with the estate agents in Tarporley and we carry out a lot of work for them.

Claire takes on the role of Head of Conveyancing.

The third new partner designate is current IT Manager, Chris Boundy, who has been with the firm for 7 years.

Chris’s appointment reflects the need for law firms to adapt to changing technologies and to ensure that their IT systems are secure and robust. IT is now a crucial part of a modern firm and having IT expertise at partner level will help the firm plan for future challenges.

Stewart Bailey, managing partner at Hibberts added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome our three new partners and the fresh ideas they will bring to the firm.

“Their input will ensure we continue to evolve as a business and provide our clients with the very best level of service.

“We wish them every success in their new roles, which are very well deserved, as all three have already made a considerable contribution to our success.”
