Dickinson Gleeson has appointed two new lawyers. Both Jonathan Barham and Caitlin Bruce are joining the firm due to the growth of its litigation team. Jonathan has been appointed as a Senior Associate and Caitlin as an Associate at the firm.
Jonathan, an English-qualified barrister who until recently practised in the North-West of England, will undertake a broad dispute resolution practice encompassing corporate, commercial and insolvency issues. He regularly advises companies, shareholders, office holders and corporate service providers on a wide range of matters.
Jonathan read Law at the University of Exeter, was called to the English Bar in 2002 and is a member of Lincoln’s Inn.
Caitlin is a South African qualified attorney (non-practising). She specialises in commercial litigation, dispute resolution and insolvency.
Since qualifying, Caitlin has advised both listed and international clients in private arbitrations and litigation involving contractual and commercial matters, as well as construction, mining and environmental disputes.
Caitlin has experience in insolvency and liquidation proceedings and, prior to joining Dickinson Gleeson, advised one of the major creditors in high-profile liquidation proceedings against Optimum Coal Mine in South Africa.
Founding partner James Gleeson said of the new hires: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan and Caitlin to the team. Their appointments during this period of uncertainty are testament to the strength of our litigation practice. We have no doubt that the addition of Jonathan and Caitlin will enhance our service capabilities in the firm’s core disputes offering.”
2020 continues to be another successful year for us, with Dickinson Gleeson being awarded Citywealth IFC Boutique Law Firm of the Year for the third year in a row.
