A former deputy mayoress of Tewkesbury has joined the team at one of the town's most prominent law firms.
DF Legal have announced the appointment of Shelby Powell to work alongside senior partner Malcolm Rees in the commercial team.
She will work on commercial property transactions including landlord and tenant matters and on the sale and purchase of investment properties on behalf of clients.
The appointment follows the recent promotion of barrister Jack Henry to the head of family and litigation and the qualification of trainee Kamrul Zaman as a solicitor last month.
Senior Partner, Maclom Rees said: "We're delighted to welcome Shelby to the team. She brings a wealth of local and legal knowledge and experience to the firm, and will no doubt strengthen our Commercial team to deliver the best results for our clients."
Ms Powell has been actively promoting Tewkesbury through her positions as deputy mayoress and as membership secretary at the town's Chamber of Commerce.
She is currently involved with the Tewkesbury in Bloom movement and is delighted to be back working in the town.
"I'm very pleased to be back working in Tewkesbury and in a role in which I can utilise my legal skills and knowledge for the benefit of the local community," she said.
"Having a varied business focused skill set is going to be a big plus in my new position, and I look forward to being a part of the team."
