Law firm, Freeths LLP, has expanded its employment and pensions practice with the appointment of five new lawyers – three of which are in the East Midlands.
The employment team has been bolstered by Amy Brokenshire (director) joining the Birmingham office, Paul Bownes (managing associate) and Alex Reid (associate) joining the Leicester office, and Andrew Dixon (associate) qualifying into the Nottingham office, whilst Nigel Jones (director) joins the firm’s pensions team in Leeds.
Rena Magdani, partner and national head of employment, pensions & immigration, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Nigel, Amy, Paul, Alex and Andrew to the team.
“The employment, pensions and immigration practice has seen a 50% increase in turnover in the last 4 years, and the last 18 months has seen a significant increase in demand for our services due to Brexit and COVID-19.
“Our team is recognised for being highly responsive, pragmatic and commercial, and we put our clients at the centre of everything we do. Our aim is to attract and develop the best lawyers and we are actively looking to appoint further high calibre lawyers to grow our team nationally.”
