New Appointments Add Strength To Our Team
As part of our ongoing expansion, we have new appointments in our leadership team and across the firm, strengthening our position as one of Leeds’ leading Law Firms and as a national trade union specialist firm.
Instrumental in leading us through this exciting period is our Managing Partner, David Sorensen. Appointed in February 2020, shortly before the Coronavirus pandemic, David has played an essential role in managing the firm and supporting its clients through an unprecedented period. He commented “I’m delighted to be Managing Partner of one of Leeds’ oldest independent law firms and to see the firm grow during what has been a challenging but overall positive year for the firm. These promotions and changes demonstrate our growth and our strong pool of talent. I would like to congratulate everyone on their promotion”.
Tom Morrish has taken over as Senior Partner from Paul Scholey. Tom will continue his roles as the firm’s Finance Partner and Head of the Wills and Estates team. Tom’s appointment recognises his long-standing contribution to Morrish Solicitors. Discussing his new appointment, Tom commented: “I am delighted to have accepted the role as Senior Partner, it gives me great satisfaction to be able to maintain the Morrish family connection. I wish Paul the best as he continues to be an active partner in the firm.”
Paul Scholey will keep working closely with our Trade Union clients and their members. Paul said: “It’s been an absolute privilege to be Senior Partner. We’ve expanded our client base locally, regionally and nationally, and grown our profile in the trade union world. I’m really proud of the work done by all our staff, and I know David will take the firm from strength to strength with Tom as Senior Partner and a great team around the partnership table.”
Joining the firm’s partnership is Anna Sari. Anna has worked at the firm since graduating in 2008. Specialising in medical negligence cases, she has a wide range of experience in claims including birth injury, delayed cancer diagnosis, GP negligence, orthopaedic injuries, gynaecological and obstetric injury and gastronomy. Her appointment recognises her years of dedicated service to the firm and its clients, and the growing caseloads within the Clinical Negligence team. On being appointed partner, Anna commented “I am absolutely delighted and proud to have been promoted to Partner. I am very much looking forward to a new challenge and contributing to the continued growth of the medical negligence team and future success of the firm.”
Employment Solicitor Tony Rippon is promoted to Associate Solicitor. Starting at the firm in 2013 as a Paralegal, Tony finished his training with us before specialising in Employment Law. His promotion reflects Tony’s excellent work and the ongoing expansion of the employment team. Speaking of his promotion, Tony said “I’m delighted to have been promoted to Associate Solicitor. I have always felt supported in my personal development here. I advise clients from a diverse background across a wide range of sectors on all aspects of employment law. I look forward to continuing to contribute to the success of the firm in my new role.”
