Independent legal practice Brabners has appointed Christine Hart as head of employment at its Preston office.
Christine is a Legal 500-recommended lawyer with 10 years’ experience in employment law, having trained under Employment Judge Paul Holmes. She joins Brabners from KBL Solicitors in Bolton, where she was also head of employment.
Christine specialises in advising directors and business owners on the full range of employment and HR issues, from industrial relations and employment tribunal claims to recruitment. She has experience working with employers across the North West, including both SMEs and large corporates.
Commenting on her appointment, Christine said: “Employment law is continually evolving and this provides a constant challenge for business owners right across the region. It’s vital that we work in partnership with clients and act as a direct extension of their team – only then can we provide the straightforward, commercial advice that will take away any legal headache and allow management teams the headspace to focus on running their business.
“This is an ethos mirrored at Brabners and I’m looking forward to working with the team as we further strengthen our employment offering in Preston and more broadly across Lancashire.”
Nik White, managing partner at Brabners, added: “Bringing the right people on board is vital to fueling the future growth of our firm and by investing in talent we will continue to provide the highest quality service to clients. We’ve seen increased demand from businesses seeking employment support in recent months and Christine’s appointment ensures we’re in a position to meet this demand and further support businesses across the region.”
Brabners has one of the largest employment teams in the North West, with more than 30 employment lawyers across its Preston, Manchester and Liverpool offices
