Alastair replaces former Head of Sheffield, Neil Thompson, who sadly passed away in June this year. Peter Jackson, Managing Partner, Hill Dickinson, said: -We are very pleased to be able to confirm that Alastair is to be the new head of our Sheffield office. -Alastair is a well-known, liked and trusted figure in the Sheffield business community, as well as being an excellent lawyer. He has been instrumental in Hill Dickinson's success across the Yorkshire region since we acquired the team from Halliwells in 2010.  We believe he is the right person to continue to grow the firm's presence in this market and wish him every success. Said Alastair: -While nobody would choose to be appointed in such circumstances as those surrounding the death of a respected colleague and friend, Neil's stewardship of and vision for the Sheffield office has ensured I begin my tenure with the best possible start.  -The office has strong partnerships with many regional businesses and organisations and we will continue to focus  on the important sectors such as manufacturing for the benefit of the team and wider region. The firm has established partnerships with Sheffield Wednesday and  many other local  organisations, and continues to work proactively with the local business and education community to promote investment and identify areas of growth.
