Senior Associate Promotion at Square One Law
Newcastle based commercial law firm, Square One Law has announced the promotion of one of its employment lawyers, Roisin Patton, to senior associate.
Roisin, whose clients include the likes of Heerema and Bannatyne, joined the entrepreneurial firm in January 2014 as an associate and over the last eighteen months has worked closely with equity partner Jean-Pierre van Zyl on building long-term relationships with established clients and bringing new work to the team.
Jean-Pierre said: “Roisin has worked hard and shown great ability and enthusiasm working with high end clients and developing the firm’s profile in the marketplace, and so the promotion is well deserved.
“Most employment teams across the country will have felt the effects of the introduction of employment tribunal fees and the ensuing decline in tribunal activity.
As employment tribunal claims have declined our experience of working on key strategic projects like global mobility, executive incentive schemes and trade union recognition with our clients has become more significant.”
Roisin added: “I’m delighted with my promotion. During my time at Square One Law I have been given the opportunity to develop the firm’s brand as well as my own which has been a great experience.
The firm is very client focussed and it is refreshing to be given the freedom to develop networks and relationships and to be able to provide genuine commercial advice to our clients. I look forward to helping JP to develop the employment team further.”
