Law Firm Appoints New Executive Director To Head Its Dispute Resolution Department

13th May 2021

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

BRM services local, regional and national clients, including PLCs, large private companies, owner managed businesses, entrepreneurial SMEs, charities and public sector organisations.

It has experienced strong growth across both its offices notwithstanding the challenges of Covid. Its Sheffield office, which opened in 2018, has flourished and is proactively expanding to meet demand, with more appointments to be announced over the next few months.

Adrian Sheehan Head of Real Estate said; “We are delighted to have recruited an Executive Director of Rob’s seniority and experience, who has been a prominent and respected Litigator in the Sheffield area for over 20 years. Rob reinforces the management and strength of our Dispute Resolution Department, particularly with regard to Property Litigation. We believe that together, Rob and his new team are one of the most robust offerings in the area”

Sarah Rowland Head of Business Law; “Rob and I started our legal careers together over 23 years ago, so I have always known of Rob’s value to his clients and the respect that they have for him. Rob’s appointment will supplement our expanding Dispute Resolution Department and add value to BRM’s commercial offering to our clients overall”

Rob Cooke Head of Dispute Resolution; “I am thrilled to be joining BRM at such an exciting time, and I am looking forward to driving the Dispute Resolution Department and the Sheffield office forward. I can’t wait to get going!”
