A Northern Ireland law firm has expanded its workforce here with a new human resource business.
Cleaver Fulton Rankin (CFR) has grown its employment department, which it says will combine "HR consultancy with more complex legal employment advice".
CFR director Michael Black said: "Because of our partnership approach with clients, we found that when they come to us with legal employment issues, we've often been able to assist with more traditional human resource management tasks as they arise.
"We've also seen growth in the HR consultancy sector, with an increased promise of legal expertise which regrettably often can't be delivered.
"As we are already providing this combined service for a few longstanding clients, we thought it would be a natural step to formally brand this service and offer our combined HR and legal skills to companies who are looking for a 'one stop shop' for their HR management needs."
