Barton Legal bucks the trend with a new hire

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Casper Hammond as an Assistant Solicitor.

Despite the gloomy economic backdrop, Casper's appointment is a reflection of our substantial recent growth. Within the last few months, not only have we found success in carving out significant national and international work, but have also expanded our marketing capabilities by appointing Kathryn Collington as a marketing consultant.

Arriving from the Hull-based Rollits where he qualified, Casper will join our well-regarded construction and engineering departments. Here he will provide advice on all aspects of construction law, be it contracting drafting, litigation or adjudication, for our international client base.

Bill Barton, Director at Barton Legal, said: “These continue to be uncertain and potentially turbulent times. But with this, also lies opportunity, not just for Barton Legal, but for the entire legal sector, in the way in which we look after our clients and to lead the way when it comes to developing innovative legal solutions. We are privileged to be investing in the growth of our business in the current climate, and these appointments reflect our long-term confidence in our business.  Casper is a great fit for our practice. It is as much about personality as it is about skill, and we are looking forward to working with him across our national and international matters.”

Casper Hammond, Assistant Solicitor, commented: “I am delighted to be joining Barton Legal's highly-regarded, award-winning team. Its reputation as a go-to firm for construction law is well known, and the depth of expertise at Barton is excellent. The firm is known for doing great work, with a really wide range of clients whilst maintaining a strong ethical foundation. I am also excited to make the move to North Leeds. As a keen cyclist, walker and runner it is a fantastic location, and the area is also very well connected to the city – the best of both worlds!”
