Lorna joined the firm as a Senior Solicitor in its Private Client department in 2011 and was appointed as the Head of Department in April 2018. Lorna has been a key member of the Private Client team ever since.
Alan Edgington, Managing Partner, said " Over the last eight years, Lorna has proven to be a great asset to the firm and she possesses all the right qualities and skills required to be a Partner. We always look to recognise the dedication of our people and promote from within wherever possible. We are therefore delighted to welcome Lorna to the partnership and we look forward to working alongside her in her new role for many successful years to come”.
Lorna Watts commented “I first undertook work experience with LDJ whilst at school and this certainly contributed to my decision to become a solicitor, however, I did not expect (at the time) that one day I would become a partner in the firm. After several years now working at LDJ, I am delighted to be joining the partnership and I look forward to playing a meaningful role in its future success.”
