Andrew Jackson has appointed Adam Sinclair as its new business development director.
Sinclair’s arrival comes shortly after the firm opened its latest regional office in Scarborough. Sinclair has worked in senior management in Yorkshire for many years as managing director of a large family business. The firm said that he brings an invaluable insight into the commercial and legal needs of the region’s businesses, both large and small.
Sinclair, who has also chaired York’s new Business Improvement District, comprising over 1,000 businesses, said that he was excited to be joining Andrew Jackson, which he said had made great strides regionally, nationally and overseas.
“I started my career in the legal profession myself, working in property law in London and, whilst I made the move to the world of business and commerce many years ago, I have retained the basis of knowledge and skills that will enable me to bridge the gap between legal services and the needs of business clients,” he said.
“It’s a great time to join the firm, with the recent opening of the Scarborough office, joining a portfolio of regional offices that continue to thrive. There is no doubt that 2016 was a fantastic year for the team at Andrew Jackson or that the client offer has never been stronger. I look forward to playing my part in ensuring that, collectively, we build on this success and ensure that we continue to provide an exceptional service that is tailored to the needs of the businesses and individuals we work with. “
Mark Pearson-Kendall, managing partner of Andrew Jackson, said that Sinclair’s
client focussed approach to connecting businesses and legal advisors was “a perfect fit” for the firm.
“With his roots in Yorkshire, both professionally and personally, Adam is well respected for his work throughout the UK, with a varied career as an employer and a leader voice in the business community and brings an invaluable perspective to the team,” said Pearson-Kendall.
“I am excited that with Adam’s valuable insight and expertise, we will be able to provide tailored legal solutions to more businesses and individuals throughout UK and overseas.”
