Berwins’ industry-ranked commercial law team has received a significant boost with the appointment of a senior corporate lawyer.
Oliver King joins as a Senior Associate, bringing with him a decade of legal experience and a reputation for delivering targeted results for corporate clients.
The team – which is recognised by Legal 500 for advising not only Yorkshire businesses, but also an increasing set of international names – routinely advises clients from a range of sectors but has a particular specialism in the IT and software space.
On being appointed, Oliver said “I’m thrilled to have joined such a well-regarded firm at what is an exciting time for the practice and the industry as a whole.”
“Not only does Berwins have an enviable reputation for completing high quality corporate and commercial work, but the firm has also used the past 12 months to focus and accelerate growth plans. That means real benefits for both clients and the business as a whole.”
Before joining Berwins, Oliver was part of the Corporate team at a regional law firm and has spent his entire career based in York, acting for both regional clients and those further afield.
Reflecting on the appointment, Senior Partner Paul Berwin added “We’re delighted that Oliver has become part of the Berwins team. There are many synergies between the way that he and the team operate, and this strategic hire will not only complement and strengthen the skill set already in place but forms a key part in driving the firm forward, contributing to ambitious growth plans.”
