All change at the top!

Hull & York commercial law firm Rollits has appointed partner Ralph Gilbert as Managing Partner with effect from 1 May 2015.  Ralph takes over from Richard Field, who, after nine years in the role takes over as Senior Partner from Steve Trynka. 

Ralph, who joined Rollits in 1988 is a well-respected litigator, recognised in particular for his practical "solutions based" approach.  He has already served as the firm's Finance Partner and in addition to his new role as Managing Partner he will continue to be involved in client matters. 

Ralph Gilbert comments "I am honoured to have been chosen as the Managing Partner of Rollits, a firm which I joined upon graduating from the University of Hull 27 years ago.

 "I want us to build upon our reputation for delivering the very best service for our clients whilst continuing to adapt and innovate in an ever changing legal market place.

 "I start my tenure from a very strong base, ready to build upon the excellent work of Steve and Richard in the past."

Richard Field comments "I have worked closely with Ralph for the last eight years when he was finance partner and so I know he will do an excellent job.  I am sure he will do all he can to  continue to move the firm forwards and entrench our position as one of the leading commercial law firms in Yorkshire."
