Three solicitors join Dawson & Burgess and Kenyon, Son & Craddock Solicitors

Newly merged Dawson & Burgess and Kenyon, Son & Craddock Solicitors has welcomed back three local solicitors to Doncaster.

Both Ben Bailey and Vicky Sladdin started their careers in Doncaster before each moved further afield within Yorkshire.

They have now returned to join the law firm, which formed on 1 April after the merger of Doncaster-based Dawson & Burgess and Kenyon, Son & Craddock, which has bases in Thorne, Goole and Wakefield.

Bailey, formerly of Graysons in Sheffield, joins Kenyon, Son & Craddock with “a wealth of experience” to drive forward its personal injury and medical negligence department.

He said: “I’m really excited at the prospect of coming back to work with a local firm in the town where I grew up with the opportunity to support local people who have suffered injury or worse through no fault of their own.” 

Sladdin returns to Doncaster after working at Emsleys in Leeds. She has “extensive experience” in wills and probate, deputyship and trusts.

The third appointment, Magdalena Musialik, moved to Doncaster from Poland when she was 19. She has lived in the town since then and has always been proud to be part of its Polish community.

Musialik joined Dawson & Burgess in 2013 and qualified as a solicitor in 2019. She went on to work in Newark but returned to the Doncaster firm earlier this year as a commercial and residential conveyancing solicitor, who also deals with corporate matters.

Musialik commented: “I am hoping to connect with individual and commercial clients, old and new. I am also particularly well placed to support Polish speaking clients.” 

Commenting on the appointments, Gemma Canli, partner at Dawson & Burgess and Kenyon, Son & Craddock Solicitors, said: “We are thrilled to be joined by such talented people and look forward to them playing a key role in our provision of excellent legal services in Doncaster City and beyond!”
