Thomas Mansfield Solicitors launches Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice

We are excited to announce that we have extended our range of services with the recruitment of new partner, Paula Kumar, the former head of Dispute Resolution and Employment at Ignition Law, a leading law firm focused on start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs.

Thomas Mansfield Solicitors has grown steadily since it was set up in 2004 and this latest expansion reflects increasing market demand for litigation and dispute resolution services, in addition to the firm’s existing corporate and private clients.

Paula joins the firm as Head of Dispute Resolution. She will work alongside Consultant, Paul Thomas, who recently secured one of the most significant judgments on costs in 20 years, in an ongoing bitter private equity partnership dispute between Melford Capital Partners (Holdings) LLP and Others and Frederick John Wingfield Digby.

Paula specialises in complex commercial, employment and media disputes. She advises on shareholder and director disputes, breach of contract, unfair dismissal, discrimination, enforcement of restrictive covenants, copyright and trademark infringement and breach of confidentiality. Paula advises a wide range of high profile private and corporate clients including high net worth individuals, SMEs, financial institutions, law firms, retail chains, charities, artists and galleries, song artist managers, international songwriters and producers, senior executives and media professionals and organisations.

Neill Thomas, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Thomas Mansfield Solicitors comments:

“Through the businesses our employment law team are working with we have found that there is a substantial demand for our advice on litigation and dispute resolution matters. To meet this demand, we have hired a partner, Paula Kumar, who specialises in this area and also brings considerable experience of running a successful team of litigation lawyers. With Paula’s help we plan to grow the team and develop the offering further.”
