Verisona Law in Portsmouth has recruited professional services marketing specialist, Kirsty Hughes, as the firm’s new marketing manager.

Kirsty began her career working for the insolvency department of one of ‘The Big Four’ accountancy firms, KPMG, where part of her role was to organise the events and activities in London to support business development.

After three years, she joined Coffin Mew Solicitors, initially as a legal secretary in corporate and insolvency, but her potential was soon recognised by the firm’s HR, compliance and marketing teams who all asked her to get involved in a variety of projects.

Now she joins Verisona in Portmouth to lead and develop the firm’s marketing activities. ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for me to create, direct and implement strategies, campaigns and events that will raise the firm’s profile and support its growth."
