Coffin Mew strengthens Brighton Private Client team

Posted on: October 1st, 2015

Coffin Mew has strengthened its team in Brighton with the appointment of talented lawyer Sue Warwick.

Sue joined the growing team in Brighton as a consultant in September to advise clients on their wills, probate, estate planning and powers of attorney. 

Since opening our office in Brighton in May, the team has grown to include specialist lawyers in corporate and commercial, commercial real estate, residential property and employment, together with the wider support of the firm’s lawyers across its offices in Portsmouth, Southampton, Gosport and London. 

Born and bred in Brighton, law was not Sue’s first career choice, having worked for a clothing and footwear company in its merchandising and marketing team, and as a school teacher teaching Spanish. Her varied career brings commercial and practical insights into her legal career.

On joining the firm, Sue said:

I have known a number of the Coffin Mew team for many years and have worked alongside them advising clients we have in common. The firm has a terrific reputation and an entrepreneurial approach, and I jumped at the chance of joining the team in Brighton.

There is also a strong demand for high quality private client support, with an established elderly population, matched with a young, affluent and entrepreneurial community.

Nick Leavey, Partner and Head of the Brighton office and the firm’s Commercial Property practice, adds:

Sue is a talented lawyer with a deep technical understanding of the law and, importantly, its practical application.

She will be a real asset to the team and we all look forward to working alongside her.
