Ison Harrison appoints corporate expert Faris Dean in Leeds

Yorkshire law firm Ison Harrison has appointed a new partner to its corporate law division.

Faris Dean will be based at Ison Harrison’s Leeds city centre office. He joins the firm’s expanding regional team after previously leading the corporate and commercial department at Berkeley Rowe Solicitors in London.

With more than 17 years of legal experience gained in the corporate and commercial arena, Dean is accustomed to working with small- and medium-sized enterprises as well as large multinationals, both within the UK and internationally.

Dean specialises in acting for clients across a broad spectrum of corporate and commercial matters ranging from business or share sales to commercial contracts and financing in various sectors, including IT, manufacturing, professional services and airlines.

As Ison Harrison’s new dedicated partner on the corporate and commercial team, Dean will help grow its service offering while also coordinating with teams of professionals from across the firm’s growing network of 16 regional offices, the newest of which opened in Harrogate in December last year.

In his new position, Dean will work closely with Richard Coulthard, director and head of corporate services at Ison Harrison.

Commenting on his appointment, Dean said: “I am delighted to be joining the firm with its strong foundations and I look forward to supporting and building the expert corporate offering, further enhancing the excellent reputation already established in this sector.”

“Ison Harrison is a progressive firm, especially in the arena of corporate law, and it continues to assert its position as one of the leading firms in the region.”

Coulthard said: “We are delighted to welcome Faris to the firm. As our commercial and corporate offering continues to grow, Faris represents another strong strategic recruit to further expand the wealth of knowledge and experience offered by the team and to further our expansion plans for our commercial services.”

“He brings with him experience in international transactions and a background in the London market to further diversify the commercial team and our client base. The division continues to go from strength to strength having doubled the commercial team’s turnover in the past two years.”
