Specialist law firm Richard Nelson LLP sees impressive growth with trio appointment of leading lawyers
28 Apr, 2016
National law firm Richard Nelson LLP is continuing to expand and strengthen its national presence with the appointment of three new lawyers. Mark Wilson, Jacqui Callan and Faris Dean (pictured) are the latest members to join the team, bringing more than 60 years’ combined experience with them.
Wilson, who takes up the role of partner, is nationally recognised within tax law, specialising specifically within heavyweight tax investigations, fraud, company prosecution and privately funded criminal cases. He was one of the founding partners of law firm Cartwright King.
He has represented clients involved in some of the most high profile cases of the past decade, including former Portsmouth FC Chairman Milan Mandaric who was cleared of all charges in his tax case alongside Harry Redknapp.
Callan initially began her career as a probation officer before retraining as a lawyer in 1999. She has been appointed solicitor advocate at Richard Nelson LLP. Her expertise is in multi-handed money laundering, customs and excise, fitness to plead and sexual offence cases.
She later joined one of the biggest criminal defence firms in the country as a director for crime and was one of the first defence High Court advocates on the Leicester circuit.
Dean joins Richard Nelson LLP as consultant solicitor. He has advised sole traders, partnerships and corporations on a range of corporate, commercial and regulatory matters, and is also a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant.
Wilson and Callan are operating from the company’s Nottingham office whilst Dean joins the office over in Cardiff.
Managing partner of Richard Nelson LLP, Marie Dancer, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark, Jacqui and Faris to our ever expanding team of defence lawyers. Their experience and industry knowledge will be invaluable for our clients and will strengthen the defence team at our Nottingham headquarters.”
The company has seven offices across the UK in London, Nottingham, Cardiff, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds.
