Gordon Brown appoints ex-Ward Hadaway man
Damian Robson will work alongside the firm’s head of dispute resolution Jonathon Stokes specialising in employment law and is training towards becoming a barrister.
Robson began his career at Browell Smith & Co as a paralegal, before moving to EEF, where he qualified as a solicitor.
Robson said: "It’s apparent that Gordon Brown is investing in further establishing itself in the business community and their transparent, people-focussed approach is particularly refreshing.
"I admire the company’s eagerness to explore opportunities that could benefit clients and the fact that they are willing to engage an in-house advocate’s role is a really exciting prospect for me."
Stokes added that Robson will be an asset to the team and his wealth of experience would "no doubt speak for itself over the coming months".
Gordon Brown has offices in Newcastle and Chester le Street.
