Cheshire law firm FDR Law has a new chief executive at its helm. 30 year old Oliver Burton has joined the full service solicitors practice after enjoying a meteoric career in the commercial and corporate banking sector.
A graduate of the top-rated Lancaster Business School, Mr Burton will be bringing his commercial and business expertise to the successful law firm which includes 18 partners and more than 100 staff.
He will be based in the firm’s head office in Palmyra Square, Warrington, and will be managing staff in the Stockton Heath and Frodsham offices as well as the specialist commercial branch in Bold Street, Warrington. As part of his CEO role, he will also be a director of fdrIM (FDR Investment Management).
Mr Burton said: “I am delighted to join a law firm with such a strong reputation in all legal sectors. My appointment signals the partners’ determination to focus on delivering business excellence and providing a top class professional service to all our clients, whilst also ensuring we invest in our people and their future.
“With the economic downturn and the recent changes to legal aid, many law firms are struggling to survive, never mind adapt and evolve. We will stand on the shoulders of our already successful platform and ensure that FDR will not just be fit for now, but also well-placed to take advantage of all opportunities in the future.”
FDR Law is a full service legal practice and provides expert professional services in commercial law, conveyancing, criminal, family, disputes, wills and probate.
