Vincents Solicitors recruits corporate litigator

Vincents Solicitors has appointed Anas Shah as corporate litigator to its commercial department.

Anas, who graduated from UCLan's law school, will be based in the law firm's Chorley office and support the corporate team at the Preston headquarters and the commercial team in Lytham.

Previously a general litigator, Anas now specialises in commercial litigation. He will assist clients with dispute resolution with regards to contracts, employment law, debt recovery, professional negligence, insolvency, property and intellectual property concerns.

He said: “Commercial litigation is a fascinating area of the law, and I have always enjoyed helping clients to identify the best course of action to resolve issues which may be impacting their business.

“Vincents appealed due to the specific interest it has in commercial disputes and the wealth of opportunity here to develop my skills and continue to grow my own client base. I am working with some of the best commercial lawyers in the county, assisting their clients and building my expertise.”

He joins a growing team, which has recently added property lawyer Craig Aikman and corporate solicitor Matthew Scott, and is led by commercial director Ross Wellman.

Vincents appealed due to the wealth of opportunity here to develop my skills and continue to grow my own client base.

Ross said: “Commercial dispute is an expensive distraction for any business, and so our priority is the swift and cost-effective resolution of the problem for our clients. Commercial litigation complements the broader corporate services we offer, and having Anas on board provides clients with further in-house support.

“We have invested heavily in building a commercial department to rival any other across the county, and have attracted some of the best and brightest in this sector to the firm over the last year. That practice will not stop and recruitment will continue as part of Vincents’ drive to become the go-to law firm for businesses in the county.”
