After six years at James Legal and two years after his promotion to senior solicitor, April 2023 saw Byron Swarbrick, who leads the corporate commercial team, appointed as the fifth director at James Legal.
“Byron has achieved a great deal and I am super proud of him. He has put in a lot of hard work over the years, delivering great results for numerous clients, and really embodies all of the James Legal core values.” Says Nick Miller, CEO of James Legal.
“A very popular person amongst the James Legal team and a firm favourite with so many clients and business contacts, Byron’s wit, humour and personality is infectious, everyone he deals with really warms to him, and his people-centred personality is one of the things that makes him such a good solicitor,” continues Nick.
Byron, who heads up the corporate commercial offering at James Legal, dealing with everything from business contracts to employment law matters, has this last year alone led transactions with a combined value of around £15 million, with many more in the pipeline. He counters being super-busy at work with his other important role as a real family man at home, enjoying spending time with his partner and two children when he’s not busy managing cases.
Managing Director and Solicitor Simon Young says Byron is another great example of how James Legal nurtures talent: “Here, we believe in giving our team members the opportunities and the platform that they need to build their experience early on in their careers – this is not always the case at many firms. In addition, all of this comes with the back-up and support of a highly competent team and of course, Byron is a shining example of what can be achieved”.
“When I first came to James Legal I had limited experience” recalls Byron. “I have had a huge amount of support and encouragement, and I am hugely grateful to have been given the opportunity of becoming a director.”
Nick concluded: “I know I speak for all the firm’s directors when I say we are all looking forward to seeing how Byron embraces his new role and continues to contribute positively to the ongoing growth of our successful firm.”
