Lupton Fawcett appoints new head to lead York office

Lupton Fawcett has appointed regulatory and corporate defence lawyer Jeremy Scott to lead its office in York. 

Scott (pictured, right) joined Lupton Fawcett as head of regulatory and corporate defence in 2013. For more than 30 years, he has represented regional, national and international businesses and their directors, advising on regulatory investigations and high-profile criminal prosecutions. 

As head of the York office, he will be responsible for leading the firm’s business development activity in and around the city, attracting new clients and building partnerships with other professional services firms. 

Commenting on his appointment, Scott said: “I am delighted to take on this role and to lead the further growth of the business in York. I believe the way we do law at Lupton Fawcett is the right way—putting clients’ interests first, always striving to get the right result for them, whether it’s a private client purchasing a house or preparing a will, or a business facing investigation by a regulatory body.” 

“I am looking forward to helping to make Lupton Fawcett the first port of call when clients in the region or further afield have a legal problem, and the first legal firm other business advisors recommend to their own clients.” 

Lupton Fawcett managing partner James Richardson (pictured, left) said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Jeremy to his wider role as head of our York office following many years of success leading our regulatory and corporate defence team.” 

“He has huge energy and enthusiasm for delivering the best results for clients and a strong commitment to supporting and motivating colleagues.  I’m looking forward to working more closely with him as we drive our continued growth in York and beyond.” 

Lupton Fawcett provides a full range of commercial and personal legal services to clients throughout the UK from its offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York. 

Last month, its Leeds-based team moved to a new office in the southern professional quarter of the city. It now occupies the entire first floor of the newly refurbished 2 The Embankment building on Sovereign Street, close to Leeds Station. 

The relocation of its Leeds office coincides with the launch of a new website and brand identity for the firm.
