LCF Law strengthens dispute resolution practice

LCF Law has strengthened its dispute resolution team with the appointment of a new solicitor.

Andrew Donaldson joins from a South Yorkshire-based law firm and is based at LCF Law’s new flagship office in Leeds.

Donaldson trained with a Legal 500-ranked firm and qualified in 2019. His experience covers corporate dispute resolution and commercial litigation, insolvency, restructuring and other corporate legal work.

He also gained two years of paralegal experience within a litigation team based in London and Dubai.

Originally from Canada, Donaldson completed his first degree in history and Russian studies at the University of Ottawa and then went on to graduate from the University of Leicester with a Bachelor of Law LL.B Hons.

Commenting on Donaldson’s appointment, Charles Abraham, head of dispute resolution at LCF Law, said: “Our team is based across both our Leeds and Bradford offices where we represent well-known national and international companies, dealing with a full range of contentious issues including contract disputes, disputes with financial institutions, insolvency and property litigation.”

“Our department has successfully grown and now consists of eight dedicated dispute experts. Clients like our strategic approach, clarity of pricing, and ability to identify a clear route to a desired outcome, and this means our client base has grown significantly over the last five years.”

“With several new contract wins towards the end of 2019, we were keen to bolster our team with bright new talent. Andrew joins lawyer Chris Dalby, who we welcomed to the insolvency team two years ago, and they both have the relevant experience and drive to succeed within our firm.”
