New face of the litigation team at Willans

06 January 2014

Category: Press releases, Commercial, Dispute resolution

We have welcomed Nick Southwell to our Chambers–rated litigation and dispute resolution department this week.

Nick, who is seven years’ qualified, has broad commercial and property litigation experience. He is also an accredited civil and commercial mediator.

He joins our team which handles many high-value commercial matters ranging from complex High Court litigation to disputes involving commercial contracts, IT and IP related issues and commercial supply, distribution, franchise and commercial agency agreements. The department boasts a loyal client base from national companies to SMEs.

Nick studied at Newcastle University and trained in a Hampshire-based law firm before spending three years at Lyons Davidson solicitors in Bristol and two years with Tayntons in Gloucester.

Nicholas Cox, partner and head of litigation and dispute resolution at Willans, comments:

“We are delighted that Nick has agreed to join us. The department ranked particularly well in national directories this year, and we are advising on a number of complex cases. It is an exciting time to be starting with us and we look forward to working with him.”

Nick Southwell, commenting on his role, said:

I’m pleased to be joining such a well-regarded team and to be working closely with Nicholas Cox and Paul Gordon in continuing the growth of the litigation department. I moved with my young family to Cheltenham four years ago and this position will allow me to develop my professional life in the area alongside the strong personal links and friendships my family and I have already established.”
