New appointment and promotion round at Swinburne Maddison

Durham City law firm, Swinburne Maddison, has extended its dispute resolution team with the appointment of a new solicitor, Lewis Brown.

Returning to the North East following time with a law firm in South Yorkshire, Lewis brings experience representing individuals and businesses across a wide range of dispute resolution matters.

He will enhance the range of legal support on offer at Swinburne Maddison and help the firm consolidate its position in the marketplace.

Speaking about his appointment, Lewis said: “I am very excited to be continuing my legal career back in the North East and to be doing so at one of the region’s fastest growing law firms.

“The dispute resolution team has an excellent reputation and Swinburne Maddison is known for its client-centred ethos and creative, practical approach to all matters.  I can’t wait to get started and play my part in its future growth.”

Jonathan Moreland, partner and head of the dispute resolution team, added: “It is a real pleasure to welcome Lewis to the team.

“He is a huge talent, and will no doubt prove himself to be a great asset as we continue to adapt to the new circumstances which the past few months have thrown at us and support our clients through this challenging period.”

The Durham law firm also recognised four of its existing team with a promotion round.

Family law specialist Catherine Lowther was promoted to associate level and Sharney Randhawa (employment), Nadine Walton (private client) and Abigail Zuk (dispute resolution) were made managing associates.

Swinburne Maddison partner, Victoria Walton, said: “In these uncertain times, it is more important to us than ever that we show our commitment to our staff and have a strong team of lawyers behind us as we guide our clients through the challenging months ahead.

“We know that our new associate and managing associates will embrace this next step in their career and we look forward to seeing where it takes them.”
