July 20, 2022

Bath-headquartered law firm Stone King has strengthened its key private client property and crime teams with a number of new appointments.

Solicitor Aisha Choudhury and paralegal Zoya Ustado have been welcomed to its private client property team while solicitor Malik Siddique has joined the crime team, along with paralegal Lucie Green. 

Aisha has a wide range of legal expertise in various areas of law having worked in London and Sussex including with firms featured in the respected Legal 500 directory.

She brings experience in residential property transactions and will focus on residential sales and purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of ownership, re-financing and international clients and will be working closely with Sarah Lane and Philip Askew.

Zoya, pictured right, arrives from single-office Bristol firm Battrick Clark Solicitors, where she was a conveyancing paralegal. She has also worked for the Bristol office of international law firm Osborne Clarke.

Malik Siddique, pictured left, has wide experience in criminal law while paralegal Lucie Green, pictured below, joins Stone King after taking part last year in its Bath office’s week -long virtual insight scheme last year.

Head of business and private client property Sarah Lane said: “I am delighted with the new appointments of Aisha and Zoya and am pleased to welcome them to the firm. 

“They have joined an excellent team at an exceptionally busy time and I am pleased they share Stone King’s ethos of helping and supporting our clients so we can continue to deliver the best possible service.”

Head of Crime Matthew Graham added: “Malik is an experienced solicitor advocate with strong community values and a real commitment to justice. I am very pleased to welcome both him and Lucie to the team.”

Stone King, which employs more than 230 people across its offices in Bath, Bristol, Birmingham, Cambridge, Leeds and London, is a national leader in the charity, faith and education sectors. 

Last month it was included in the latest Best Companies To Work For UK rankings in recognition of its workplace engagement policies.
