Brabners, a commercial law firm based in Manchester, has appointed a new managing partner.
Nik White will succeed Mark Brandwood with effect from 1 May 2018, as Brandwood steps down from the role after nine years.
Brandwood will continue as a corporate partner in the firm’s Manchester office.
On his appointment, White said: “This is a hugely exciting time for the firm and our people. The North West region has incredible potential, full of talent, innovation and determination to succeed.
“As one of the region’s leading law firms, we’re keen to play our part in helping to fulfil that potential. I am passionate about supporting our people and clients and am really looking forward to leading Brabners and driving the firm’s success.”
Speaking about the appointment, Brandwood added: “We’ve built excellent momentum across the entire firm over the last 18 months. This means we can continue to invest in expanding our capabilities for the benefit of our clients, underpinned by exceptional talent, service and technology.
“We’ve spent the last year developing some of the best specialist legal and sector teams right here in the North West. Looking ahead to 2018, we’re ideally placed to help guide clients through their complex legal challenges, supporting them in realising their ambitions by capitalising on opportunities for growth and development.
“Nik has played a key role in helping to shape our identity and culture and I know I’m passing the mantle onto a talented leader who will continue to guide the business forward, building on what has already been achieved.”
