Watson Burton targets employment growth

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.
Graham’s 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 firm’s role in advocacy at employment tribunals.”
