Kuits’ litigation team bolstered by three new hires26 Sep 2016
Manchester commercial law firm Kuits has strengthened its litigation team with three new appointments.
Catherine Gritt joins the department from Squire Patton Boggs as an associate. Catherine, who is a member of the Property Litigation Association, brings extensive experience in all areas of property litigation, including landlord and tenant law, as well as having considerable experience in commercial contractual disputes and professional negligence actions.
In addition, the department has welcomed associate Phillip Warburton, a commercial dispute resolution lawyer with experience of dealing with a wide range of disputes. This encompasses all areas, including contractual and shareholder disputes, professional negligence, injunctive relief and commercial property litigation. Previous firms include O’Neill Patient Solicitors and Muldoon Britton Solicitors.
Siôn Fôn also joins the team as a newly qualified solicitor, having completed his training contract with Kuits.
Andrew Weinberg, head of the litigation department, commented: “The growth of the team reflects an increase in both caseload and fee income in recent months. This is particularly true for areas such as property litigation, where it’s been essential that we strengthen the team to support our growing client base.
“Our strategy has always been to hire the very best talent across the firm, and both Catherine and Phillip come to us with a proven track record of success. We are similarly delighted to have been able to welcome Siôn into the team following completion of his training contract, during which he demonstrated many of the traits we look for in our team members, such as commercial awareness, tenacity and a determination to go the extra mile for clients.”
