Leading Gloucestershire law firm Willans LLP has appointed a new solicitor to its Legal 500-rated litigation & dispute resolution team
Katie Duthie has joined Willans from the Bristol office of national firm Lyons Davidson. She works with the team across a wide range of private and commercial work, including disputes arising from commercial contracts, landlord and tenant and property. Katie also deals with civil litigation and contentious probate and trust cases.
Litigation & dispute resolution partner Paul Gordon commented: “We are delighted to welcome Katie to Willans’ dynamic and innovative team. Katie’s appointment will help us to meet increasing demand from our growing client base, enabling us to continue to deliver the first-class client service that we are known for”.
Katie said: “I am really pleased to have joined the highly-regarded litigation & dispute resolution team at Willans, and am looking forward to working with a varied base of clients across Gloucestershire.”
Katie’s arrival is one of several recent appointments at the established firm, which has enjoyed steady expansion across its private client and commercial teams over the last few years, and particularly in the last four months.
Willans’ commercial litigation practice scooped a prestigious top-tier rating in the latest edition of national independent guide The Legal 500, with 11 of the firm’s departments ranked in total. The guide praises the firm’s dispute resolution department for its “strong presence” in the region, describing it as “able to compete with larger regional players”.
