Leading Harrogate law firm McCormicks Solicitors has added to its Commercial Litigation team with the appointment of Will Bates.
He will work with Partner Philip Edmondson in providing Commercial Litigation and Sports Disputes services to clients.

He trained at a regional firm in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire and, as well as Commercial Litigation, has experience in Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property and Employment matters.
Philip Edmondson said: “Will’s forensic and pragmatic approach and ability to anticipate potential issues, while considering whether alternative dispute resolution is possible, makes him an excellent fit with the McCormicks team.”
Will has experience assisting with a full range of Commercial Litigation matters involving: contractual disputes, construction disputes, debt recovery, professional negligence, contentious probate, harassment, defamation, abusive registration of domain names, insolvency (individual and corporate) and matters with multi-jurisdictional elements.
