Nottingham-based law firm Fraser Brown Solicitors has announced the promotion of Fiona Boswell to partner.
Fiona, who is a BFA (British Franchise Association) qualified franchise professional and recommended lawyer for franchising in legal directories, joined Fraser Brown in 2015 and has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry.
As the head of franchising and commercial services at Fraser Brown, Fiona co-ordinates the franchise team and advises businesses on all legal aspects concerning franchising, including contracts, disputes, mediation, resales, international franchising, brand issues and more.
Fiona said: “It’s a privilege to be recognised by the firm for my commitment to our clients and the Fraser Brown team and I’m very much looking forward to continuing to develop the firm’s portfolio as a partner.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with new and long-standing clients over the last few years on many varied cases, no two days are the same here and it is a fantastic company to work for. The knowledgeable team, growing company and clients create a very inspirational working environment.”
The announcement of Fiona’s promotion comes just four months after Fiona took home the service provider of the year award at the annual Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards.
Patrick Wood, managing partner at Fraser Brown, said: “Fiona is extremely passionate about franchising and has provided valuable support to many of our clients since she joined us in 2015. She is a great advocate for women in the franchising industry and a valuable asset to our team.
“This promotion is testament to her hard work and commitment to both the firm and our clients. I know she will thrive in her new role and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.”
