Brabners gains momentum with key partner hire

Brabners has further strengthened its employment, pensions & immigration practice with the appointment of partner Dan Walker.

Dan has previously been a partner at Knights and head of the employment team at MLP Law in Altrincham. He brings more than 15 years’ experience supporting employer clients across a variety of sectors, including retail, hospitality, healthcare and pharma.

Brabners’ employment, pensions & immigration practice is a Tier 1 Legal 500 ranked department. The team has a strong reputation for representing clients dealing with complex, high value employment related projects and disputes.

Dan’s support for clients will include guiding senior executives through shareholder and director level disputes, restrictive covenant cases and high-level strategic decisions. In addition, he will continue to ensure compliance for businesses operating in highly regulated industries, as well as advising on share options and long-term incentive plans that drive client growth.

Nik White, managing partner at Brabners, said: “The past few years have been challenging for employers as they look to deliver growth in a wage and cost inflationary environment and a demanding labour market. As businesses adapt and strategically review their models, we’re seeing greater demand for the high-level expertise.”

Dan Walker added: “Having been part of the legal sector in the North West for almost two decades, I’ve seen the evolution of Brabners into a high-performing purpose-led firm. The employment team’s ‘tier one’ status made it a huge draw, and I’m looking forward to my clients being able to benefit from the depth of expertise across the team.”
