Nottingham-based Fraser Brown Solicitors expands its commercial and franchise team with the appointment of Ketan Mistry, who joins the firm as a solicitor.
In his new position, Ketan assists with a wide range of commercial and franchise legal services; including IT services agreements, license agreements, supply and distribution agreements, data protection policies, confidentiality agreements, IP licences and assignments, and franchise agreements.
Ketan worked for five years at Shoosmiths LLP joining as a paralegal, before completing his training contract in the firm’s Manchester office.
Ketan said: “One of the many services Fraser Brown are renowned for is its specialist commercial and franchise services and is a market leader across the two sectors. The firm works with well-known national brands as well assisting international brands coming into the UK marketplace. Joining the commercial and franchise team here is an excellent opportunity for me.
“Fraser Brown’s dedicated and personal approach aligns with my own values and aspirations, and I’m very much looking forward to developing my career further at the firm.”
Patrick Wood, managing partner at Fraser Brown, believes the move will provide great support to cater for the teams growing demand. He said: “With Ketan’s proactive and enthusiastic approach to work, he is a perfect fit for the commercial and franchise team.
“It’s always fantastic to be able to welcome new people to Fraser Brown and his appointment, which is part of Fraser Brown’s ongoing growth strategy, will allow us to continue to deliver a first-class service to our clients.”
Ketan will work alongside Fiona Boswell, head of the commercial and franchising team, and is preparing to help host a GDPR seminar on 27 February at the firm’s offices to advise organisations on a three-month compliance program to get GDPR ready.
