Nic Elliott, Director & Head of the Dispute Resolution & Employment Group said: “Nicola’s arrival is a key part of the Groups’ growth strategy and compliments the other dispute resolution services we offer.

Now a few weeks in, I’ve got to say everyone at the firm has been fantastic and very welcoming.
