In December 2021, John Todd (our former Head of Civil Litigation) retired after a commendable 57 years in the legal profession. We would like to wish John a very happy retirement.
John’s retirement leads us to welcoming Nick Howell as our new Head of the Civil and Litigation Department. Nick joined AMD in December 2021.
Nick moved to Bristol in 2012, where he undertook the Legal Practice Course and worked as a civil litigation paralegal for around 4 years. He then trained at a firm in Dorset, before qualifying as a litigation solicitor and returning to Bristol.
On qualification, Nick helped his firm develop their commercial litigation department and was promoted to Associate after 2 years. He expanded his offering to employment law and looks forward to adding this specialism to our existing team.
Nick enjoys the personable aspects of working as a solicitor and he has really enjoyed helping clients through difficult times. One example in a commercial context is advising employers or employees on settlement agreements. Read more below on the considerations in play when advising employees on the terms of a settlement agreement drafted by an employer.
Outside of work Nick enjoys playing football and keeping a watchful eye over his mischievous toddler.
Nick will be based at our office at 100 Henleaze Road, but will be able to meet clients throughout all of our four offices.
