Dickinson Dees leader steps down

Dickinson Dees‘ managing partner of 10 years Neil Braithwaite has stepped down and Jonathan Blair, who has been with the Newcastle firm since 1989, will take over the reins.

Braithwaite has presided over a fivefold increase in turnover to £56m and had followed an aggressive expansion strategy across Yorkshire and into London.

Blair was optimistic that Dickinson Dees’ strong growth would continue. Braithwaite will continue at the firm as a partner.
