Yorkshire solicitor sets up commercial law firm

A solicitor known for her no-nonsense approach within the Sheffield and South Yorkshire area has joined forces with other lawyers to launch their own firm.

Stacey Pocock, who has more than 16 years’ experience, teamed up with Jason Skelton, Neil Brown and Anna Cattee and pooled their business legal knowledge to start CMP Legal at The Bridge Business Centre in Chesterfield.

The niche commercial law firm will deliver expert services to clients located in Chesterfield, Sheffield and across the country in areas such as corporate, commercial, dispute resolution and employment.

Cattee is an expert in corporate and commercial affairs. She said: “Each of us has significant experience in our specialist area of practice and the chance to break the mould through the creation of a fresh client-focused firm was an opportunity none of us wanted to miss.

“Being passionate about delivering our expertise in a clear and concise way, we understood there was a better way of working with improved technology geared for a national reach.

“Our investment in digital systems, offers clients complete flexibility in the delivery of the services they require.”

Brown is a highly experienced dispute resolution and employment solicitor with a strong business client base.

Skelton has been practicing in the Derbyshire area for more than 25 years and is a well-respected dispute resolution solicitor for businesses.

He also has a particular specialism in contentious probate matters and is regularly recommended by other solicitors and professionals.

Skelton said: “I fully believe that this offering will be met with great enthusiasm by the business community and we have ambitious plans for the future.”
