Knights has bolstered its Dispute Resolution team with the addition of two senior lawyers who bring a strong client base to its Weybridge office.

Professional services business Knights has hired Partner Stephen Bottomley and his colleague Lyssa Reeve.

They both join Knights’ growing Dispute Resolution team as the business gears up for growth.

Stephen Bottomley specialises in helping clients resolve disputes over a variety of areas including contentious probate, property disputes and landlord & tenant matters.

He brings more than a decade of experience of working alongside clients on disputes of all kinds – often over assets worth more than £1 million.

Stephen Bottomley said:

“It’s a really exciting time to join Knights, with growth planned here in Weybridge and right across the country. That growth will bring opportunities for my clients, and I’m looking forward to getting going.”

Stephen bolsters Knights’ Weybridge team that offers a full range of services across corporate, real estate, family, private wealth and dispute resolution law.

He arrives at Knights alongside Lyssa Reeve. The pair previously worked together and have built a strong reputation and network of clients and referrers with a range of commercial clients, including vehicle rental companies and dental practices.

Stephen’s appointment also follows the arrival of Corporate Partner Jay Birch in Knights’ Weybridge office – with more senior hires due to be announced in the coming weeks.

Client Services Director Darren Walker said:

“Stephen and Lyssa are brilliant additions to our team in Weybridge. We’ve got ambitious plans for growth over the coming months, and they will help us to deliver on those plans.

“We’re making a huge investment in our team across the South East and there are exciting times ahead.”
