Entrepreneurial law firm Square One Law has kick-started the New Year by announcing the promotion of corporate lawyer, JemilVisram, and commercial dispute resolution lawyer, Hayley Anderson, to the position of associate.
After a relatively short time at Square One Law, JemilVisram and Hayley Anderson have made a significant contribution to their teams and both have been involved in high profile work as the firm continues to grow at a fast pace. The result of their hard work and good client relationship skills have been recognised by the partners through their promotion to associate level.
Jemil commented: “I am delighted to receive the recognition for my work and I look forward to the responsibilities that come with being an associate. As a firm we have big plans for the New Year so I’m pleased to be able to start 2014 with an enhanced role within the team and I’m ready to face the new challenges ahead.”
Hayley continued: “Whilst I have only been at Square One Law for a year, I have really enjoyed my time here. I love being part of a growing business and the opportunities that it brings and I look forward to developing my career with the firm.”
The Employment team at Square One Law continues to expand and welcomes the appointment of Roisin Patton as an associate from Watson Burton.
After completing her LPC at Northumbria University, Roisin trained at Sintons. She is now four years qualified and has since gained a wealth of experience on the full range of employment issues from complex matters such as industrial action and trade union recognition to contentious issues involving the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal.
Roisin said: “I was really impressed by Square One Law’s vision and entrepreneurial approach and I was drawn by the opportunity to develop my career and contribute to the ongoing development and success of this dynamic organisation.”
Speaking of the promotions and appointment, senior partner, Ian Gilthorpe, said: “The firm has come a long way in the last two and a half years and my partners and I are delighted to be able to recognise the hard work and achievements of Hayley and Jemil as well as welcoming Roisin. We have invested in some great people and it is good to see them being able to develop their careers with us. This, of course, is only achieved by the fantastic support of our clients.
“2014 is going to be a challenging year for many law firms, but we believe our leaner and more agile model can help us deliver our services in a more innovative way that can meet the changes of our clients’ marketplaces.“
