Freeths bolsters employment practice with raft of new lawyers

Law firm Freeths has further expanded its national employment team with a number of strategic appointments – including two in the East Midlands.

The team has been bolstered by Lee Ashwood (director) joining the Manchester office, Melanie Morton (managing associate) joining the Nottingham office, Jesse Tataobuzogwu (associate) joining the Leicester office and Rajvir Malhi (associate) qualifying into the Milton Keynes office.

Rena Magdani, national head of employment, pensions & immigration, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Lee, Melanie, Jesse and Rajvir to the team. These four new hires reflect the continued growth and success of our employment practice, which is nationally recognised for providing highly responsive, commercial and pragmatic advice to our valued clients.

“We have seen a significant increase in demand for our services since the pandemic and in light of the challenging economic conditions that employers are facing. We are actively looking to recruit and develop further high calibre lawyers across our offices nationally.”

Melanie Morton said: “I am very excited to have joined Freeths, a firm with an excellent reputation both for the quality of work undertaken and its own workplace culture. The employment team at Freeths is very well regarded nationally and I am looking forward to working within a Legal 500 Top Tier department that is clearly committed to working in partnership with clients to provide a prompt and valuable service. The welcome from my colleagues has been great and I look forward to continuing my career here.”

Jesse Tataobuzogwu added: “Freeths has always been a firm I have admired due to its highly regarded lawyers and calibre of clients that it acts for. I am thrilled to have joined this fantastic firm and to be able to contribute towards its continued growth.”
