Issue 79

Muckle LLP has strengthened its award-winning team with nine new promotions, including three new Partners.

Richard Nixon, Julie Garbutt and Amy Sergison have been made promoted to Partner and five other solicitors have been promoted to Associate. Richard Nixon joined the firm’s Real Estate team in 2010 as a solicitor and specialises in drafting and negotiation real estate documents such as agreements, transfers, leases and licenses. Richard also has a wide range of experience acting for clients in the public, private and educational sectors.

Julie Garbutt is an expert in all aspects of personal estate planning for businesses clients and their families. As part of the growing Private Client team, Julie provides specialist advice on wills, family trusts, inheritance planning, business succession, asset protection and Court of Protection work. Also promoted to Partner is Amy Sergison, who is part of Muckle’s Employment and Business Immigration team and uses her skills to advise employers on all aspects of contentious and noncontentious employment law, from recruitment through to dismissal. She also leads the team on providing business immigration advice and provides bespoke training on employment law issues to organisations in the private, education and charitable sectors.

Sara Worsick (Corporate), Tom Justice (Commercial), Olivia Colbeck (Private Client), Kate Rickett (Real Estate), Beth Thompson (Real Estate) and Zoe Ditch (Banking) have all been promoted to Associate.

Jason Wainwright, Managing Partner at Muckle LLP, said: “It’s fantastic to see Richard, Julie and Amy promoted to Partner in recognition of their expertise, dedication and major contributions they’ve made to our firm.

“I’m also delighted to see Sara, Tom, Olivia, Kate, Beth and Zoe receive their well-deserved promotions. These new promotions reflect the hard work, expertise and enthusiasm that they have all demonstrated. It’s wonderful to see that some of them joined Muckle through our vacation scheme, and most went on to become trainees at the firm before their most recent promotion to Associate.

“At Muckle, we pride ourselves on nurturing talent from within, and we’re pleased to help develop and reward our home-grown talent.

“Recognising our best people is really important to us and Muckle continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to seeing our firm grow alongside the talented individuals within it.”
