Manchester recruitment drive continues at Browne Jacobson

11 March 2013

Browne Jacobson has further strengthened its presence in Manchester with the appointment of commercial dispute resolution lawyer Katie Scott.

Katie, who joins from the Manchester office of Gateley, has expertise in a broad range of complex, high value commercial disputes as well as considerable experience of conducting claims in the civil courts.

Katies appointment follows a major recruitment drive by the Piccadilly Place law firm which has seen the recent arrivals of former Hempsons health partner Amanda Callaghan and legal assistant Louise Wallbank.

The firms commercial disputes resolution team advises its growing insurance, national and international commercial client base on a broad range of domestic and international disputes from coverage disputes, breaches of contract, covenant and warranties to defamation, injunctions, misrepresentation and shareholder disputes. It has seen noticeable growth in recent years and in 2012 bucked the national trend in litigation by recording double digit growth.

Nichola Evans, Commercial Disputes Resolution Partner for Browne Jacobson in Manchester, said:

"With her broad commercial disputes resolution credentials Katie will be an excellent fit with the team and a major asset for clients. Whilst national figures suggest a fall in the overall number of claims being issued in the civil courts we appear to have bucked this trend and seen a significant increase in the quantity and quality of cases being handled by the team. Litigation is an expensive and time consuming business and our ethos of investing in first class dispute resolution lawyers alongside a commitment to delivering a quick, cost effective and low risk service to clients has paid dividends. Katies appointment, along with Amanda and Louise, highlights our confidence in the Manchester market and a commitment to grow our already strong commercial dispute resolution capabilities regionally and nationally."
