Sheffield based Wake Smith Solicitors has strengthened its Litigation and Dispute Resolution department with the appointment of Mike Doherty as an Associate.

Mike joins the team with more than 15 years’ experience in disputes including contractual, property, insolvency and shareholder and partnership.

His experience also covers equity and trust based claims, negligence claims, breach of warranty claims, TOLATA cases and contested probate matters.

Solicitor Mike said:

“This was a great opportunity to join Wake Smith. Straight away I knew the company was a perfect fit for me. I have been impressed by the place, the people and the operation as a whole.”

After qualifying, Mike became an associate working across South and West Yorkshire as a civil and commercial litigator at firms in Leeds and Sheffield.

Liz Shaw, head of Litigation at Wake Smith Solicitors, said:

“Most businesses at some time will need expert litigation legal advice and representation to prevent or resolve disputes. Mike joins an experienced and highly effective team of litigation specialists at Wake Smith fighting cases for our clients. These range from small businesses to large organisations on issues that include multi-million pound multi party actions to matters involving a few thousand pounds. We welcome Mike to the team.”

The Sheffield based litigation team includes a part time judge; a trained mediator; and several members of Law Society panels who are highly experienced solicitors specialising in contentious matters.

The team is supported by various legal professionals, who are litigation specialists in their own right.
