Lupton Fawcett expands employment team

Lupton Fawcett is expanding its employment team with the appointment of experienced solicitor Holly Dobson. 

Dobson (pictured) joins the firm’s Sheffield office as a partner, specialising in employment law and data protection and the General Data Protection Regulation. 

Her 35 years of experience covers the full range of employment issues, civil litigation, and data protection compliance and training.

After studying law at Durham University, Dobson held various roles where she gained experience as a skilled advocate and a robust litigator. She is a deputy district judge and a member of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.

Andy Gilchrist, head of employment at Lupton Fawcett, said: “We are delighted to welcome Holly to the team as she is an exceptional employment lawyer with an excellent reputation.”

“As Holly is a part-time Deputy District Judge and a data protection expert, she brings additional skills and experience to the team. Holly is consistently highly rated in the Legal 500 so will be a real asset to the team.”

“Importantly, she is a true team player with a real focus on customer service, so she is a great fit and shows that Lupton Fawcett is, again, the firm to be part of.”

Lupton Fawcett has offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York, providing a full range of legal services to commercial and individual clients.
