Helen, who joined Archers Law’s Litigation team from a local firm in 2018, has extensive experience of all types of litigation and insolvency work. Helen’s promotion to an Executive Associate Solicitor puts her on Archers Law’s ‘Path to Partnership.’

In addition to the experience Helen has gained through her career, in 2015 she was appointed as the youngest ever President of the Tees Valley Law Society and, in 2016, Helen was shortlisted for the award ‘Rising Star- Young Lawyer of the Year’ at the Northern Law Awards. Helen also sits on the management board of a local charity, The Moses Project.

The Legal 500 has previously recognised Helen as “‘highly professional’ Helen Lyne, who is recognized for their property litigation expertise."

Leah joined Archers Law in 2010 to undertake her training contract and qualified in 2012, taking a seat in the Wills, Probate and Trusts team. After a brief spell at another local firm, Leah returned in August 2017 as a solicitor in our experienced Wills, Probate and Trusts unit in the private client department.

Leah has experience in providing advice in a variety of areas including will drafting, preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney, administration of estates and applications to the Court of Protection.
Leah is a full-accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), an affiliate member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a Dementia friend champion.

Both Helen and Leah’s promotions reflect their dedication to their teams and the professional experience they bring to the firm.
