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

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.
