We have strengthened our Litigation team - February 2013
Debra Spedding has joined Everett Tomlin Lloyd & Pratt.
Debra, a commercial litigator, started working for us after a total of twelve years with Eversheds and Harding Evans. During that time Debra was recognised by the Legal 500 as being a leader in her field and became head of Harding Evans commercial debt recovery department.
Originally from Lincolnshire but now settled in South Wales with her family, Debra has been appointed as an associate solicitor based at our Gold Tops office.
Debra said: “I am delighted to have secured this position with ETLP, not just because they have a reputation as being a family friendly and forward thinking firm, but because they have expanded their business client base consistently over the last decade and wanted to be able to offer a more specialised service.”
“My overriding passion and commitment is to commercial litigation with the emphasis on building disputes and professional negligence work but I have wide experience of all types of civil litigation, including neighbour and boundary disputes, contractual disputes, debt recovery and enforcement action.”
“I was attracted by ETLP’s ambitious plans and approachable and honest outlook towards their clients. This is an exciting time to be part of ETLP and I hope to be able to attract new clients to the business and play an active part in the development of the firm.”
Kirsten Tuck, the firm’s Head of Litigation said; “Debra’s appointment significantly strengthens both our team and the service we can give to our commercial property and business clients. We are delighted she chose to join us as we are aware that a number of firms were keen to recruit her.”
Managing Partner, Ashley Harkus, said: “We’re naturally delighted to have been able to attract a professional of Debra’s undoubted and proven calibre to join us. ETLP has ambitious growth plans and we see Debra, with her range of skills, as being able to play an integral part in helping us to achieve our goals.”
