New associate directors boost leadership team at Berwins

Yorkshire law firm Berwins has appointed three associate directors.

Unit heads Andrew Mawdsley (dispute resolution), Danielle Day (family) and Martin Whincup (marketing) have all been promoted.

Mawdsley, who also serves as a deputy district judge, has led the dispute resolution team at Berwins since joining the firm in 2017. He routinely acts on complex litigation cases including those in the High Court and Court of Appeal.

Day has rapidly earned a reputation as an exemplary family lawyer. Recognised in industry guides, she is among the youngest department heads in Yorkshire.

Whincup, who has a background in professional services marketing, has led the firm’s marketing function for almost four years.

During that time, he has overseen the firm’s recent rebrand, launch of a standalone digital law unit and run campaigns that have garnered industry recognition.

Commenting on the appointments, Berwins managing director Sarah Smith said “We’re excited to see these three highly talented individuals move on to the next stages of their careers with us.”

“During their time with the firm, each of our newly appointed associate directors has committed themselves to their roles, using their talents to further the business goals of their respective teams. Promotion will see the wider firm benefit further from their dedicated approach.”
