We are pleased to announce the appointment of former Lupton Fawcett Partner Rob Cooke as an Executive Director to head its Dispute Resolution Department.

Rob has extensive experience in Commercial and Property Litigation. He has been appointed in a strategic move to further bolster BRM’s Dispute Resolution Department, and as part of continuing expansion plans in Sheffield. Rob will be based at the firm’s Sheffield office at Steel City House, West Street.
