New partner to strengthen employment team and build up advocacy practice for employment tribunals
North East firm Watson Burton has bolstered its employment practice with the hire of Chris Graham, a partner at Leeds-based Ford & Warren. Grahams focus is on the transport sector. He brings many years experience acting for haulage companies and bus and coach operators. Other clients include the UK-wide Reeds Rains estate agency and Danka UK. At Watson Burton Graham will also represent hospitals and construction companies. Graham said: It is a great time to join Watson Burton, which is strengthening its employment team and winning high-profile clients. I will be advising local businesses about the detail of new laws which have a long-term impact on working life and building up the firms role in advocacy at employment tribunals.
