Paul Sykes is recognised as a leading litigator regionally and also in the top law firm directory, Legal 500 and in The Good Lawyer Guide. At Lupton Fawcett, Paul's primary focus will be to strengthen the firm's dispute management practice in York and North Yorkshire.
The firm's respected dispute resolution practice in York acts for many well known businesses and individuals in the region.

He has a proven track record of helping clients achieve success and his appointment is further testament to our long-term strategy of investing in our people, to deliver the very best to our clients. This is the first of a series of lateral hires into our York office since our December merger, designed to provide the strongest offering into the York market. I am very keen to speak to any other first-class lawyers with strong York connections who feel they can contribute to our continued success."
