Browne Jacobson appoints head of employment in Manchester

24 June 2015

Browne Jacobson has announced the appointment of Kerren Daly to head up its Employment Team in Manchester.

As the former head of education and lead partner in the employment team at DWF, Kerren has over 17 years of experience advising clients in all areas of employment law with a particular specialism in discrimination law, executive terminations and trade union issues. She also appears as an advocate before the Employment Tribunal. Kerren is also a trustee board member of MASH – Manchester Action on Street Health.

Browne Jacobson’s 20 strong national employment team acts for both public and private sector clients in the UK and international whilst the firm’s specialist education team has been described as an ‘industry powerhouse’ by Chambers UK, serving over 1000 education sector organisations nationally including numerous maintained and independent schools, boarding schools and academies and their sponsors.

The news comes just weeks after the firm announced a record turnover of £58.9m for 2014/15. All five of the firm’s offices posted impressive organic growth figures with its Manchester office, which opened in January 2012, seeing turnover grow by 73% and headcount 26% in the last twelve months.

Peter Jones, national head of employment at Browne Jacobson, said :

“On the back of a fantastic year for our Manchester office we have wasted no time in adding another key strategic hire to our team in the North West. Kerren’s credentials mean she will not only play a key role in developing our employment offering in the North West but will be instrumental in the future development of our national practice.”

Mark Blois, head of education at Browne Jacobson, added:

“Kerren’s arrival is a real feather in our cap. Her credentials as a first rate employment law practitioner with strong sectoral expertise is an excellent fit for Browne Jacobson and her arrival will be valuable in serving the needs of our education clients in the North West.”
