She has experience in mergers and acquisitions as well as a broad range of commercial transactions and corporate advisory work.
Lyttle also undertook a number of secondments to major institutional clients during her time at JWS.
Former Kelly & Co banking & finance head Martin Lovell also recently joined the boutique firm (1 July).
Laity Morrow now has a total of four directors.
