Leading North Yorkshire law firm McCormicks of Harrogate has a new Solicitor.
Brian Nuttney joined the practice in 2014 as a Legal Assistant, following a long and successful career in journalism, and has now qualified as a Solicitor.
He works in both the Crime and Private Client departments.
Brian was formerly Deputy Editor of the Yorkshire Evening Post and prior to that of the Telegraph & Argus in Bradford. He completed a Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at the College of Law/University of Law, York, before joining McCormicks.
Brian’s colleague in the Crime team, Sean Wilson, has qualified as a Duty Solicitor. Duty Solicitors represent people who do not have a solicitor but require legal representation, both at the police station and in court.
Sean is a former Dental Surgeon, who retrained as a lawyer following a car crash in his late 20’s. He started as a Trainee Solicitor at McCormicks in 1998, qualifying as a solicitor in July 2002. He left the firm in 2003 to pursue other interests but returned as a Consultant in late 2009.
He appears regularly in the Magistrates’ Courts and police stations, to represent clients in the full range of criminal and motoring offences.
McCormicks Head of Crime, Partner Geoff Rogers, said: “Brian and Sean’s qualifications further strengthen our busy team and I congratulate them on their success.”
McCormicks is the only Harrogate firm to be recommended for Crime in both of the latest editions of the leading guides to the legal profession, the UK Legal 500 and Chambers UK.
