Kuits strengthens commercial law team

7th March 2023

Manchester commercial law firm Kuits recently strengthened its commercial law team with the appointment of Nicola Knappett as Senior Associate and the promotion of Rebecca Bainbridge to Senior Associate.

Nicola (Nikki) brings to the firm significant experience of working as a freelance General Counsel for a number of well-known brands, as well as having worked for global law firms.

Of her appointment Nikki said; “I’m really excited to join Kuits in a role where I can use my skills as in-house counsel to assist our clients while also working in a team of talented commercial lawyers. Kuits is a well-know and well-respected law firm in Manchester and I am delighted to be a part of it.”

Nikki’s appointment follows the promotion of Rebecca Bainbridge to Senior Associate in December 2022. Rebecca joined Kuits in 2014 and is a very talented and highly regarded lawyer who provides excellent service to clients, ensuring her advice is business-focused as well as technically brilliant.

Caroline Brennan, Partner and Head of Commercial at Kuits commented; “Rebecca is an exceptional commercial solicitor and her promotion to Senior Associate is very well deserved. I know she will continue to be an asset to the team. The appointment of Nikki as Senior Associate adds a further dimension to our team and her experience in General Counsel roles means we can continue to offer our clients the type of pragmatic and commercially focussed service they would expect  from  in house counsel but with the support and resources of a top 200 law firm.”

Kuits is ranked in both Legal 500 and Chambers UK as well as being included in the Times UK top law firms and Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplace®.
