Head of Litigation Becomes Associate Director

Winn Group is delighted to have made Adam Thorpe an Associate Director.

Adam will continue in his role as Head of Litigation supporting the business in its legal strategies as Winns transitions through government reforms and also into some exciting new areas of law.

Whilst some parts of his day job won’t be changing, Adam commented;

“Joining as an Associate Director will hopefully give me further opportunities to learn and to contribute to the Group’s legal and strategic objectives.”

Adam’s legal career journey started when he attended Newcastle University to study Law followed by the completion of his LPC at Northumbria. He went on to gain experience at some large firms in London and the North East, joining Winns in 2012 as a Legal Clerk. He was then awarded a training contract with the firm, qualifying as a Solicitor in 2014.

Grateful for Winns’ significant role in enabling his career progression, Adam added;

“Winns has always been supportive on a personal and professional level, giving me some fantastic opportunities to continue learning.”  

Chris Birkett, Winn Group Chief Operating Officer, added his support to Adam in his new role saying;

“Adam deserves huge congratulations on becoming an Associate Director. Over the years he has become a vital member of the team, assisting all departments with some of the more detailed, complex legal arguments and has been successful on a number of appeals. In addition, Adam has in more recent times been heavily involved in the company’s strategy of entering into new areas of law and new innovative funding mechanisms, which we believe will put us ahead of our competitors.”
