Peter Nicholson’s promotion is one of several to be made across Nelsons’ three offices as it continues to grow the business and develop its employees across a range of its departments

Leicester law firm Nelsons has promoted Peter Nicholson to the position of legal director.  

A solicitor with nine years’ experience, Nicholson first joined Nelsons in 2018 after he said he was drawn to the firm’s “innovative and dynamic” approach. He currently advises businesses and individuals on a wide range of employment law matters including complex cases involving departures, discrimination and whistleblowing.

His promotion is one of several to be made across Nelsons’ three offices as it continues to grow the business and develop its employees across a range of its departments.

Nicholson said: “I am delighted to be offered this promotion. Nelsons has an excellent reputation across the East Midlands and is renowned for being innovative and dynamic. I am really grateful for the opportunity to develop my career in such an exciting environment.

“As legal director, I am looking forward taking on a more active leadership role and the challenges that come with that increased responsibility. Above all, however, I am excited about playing my part in further enhancing Nelsons’ high performance culture through which we aim to empower our clients.”

He added: “I’m fortunate enough to work alongside so many exceptionally talented and hardworking individuals, not just within the employment department but across the whole firm. Without a doubt, the people, both colleagues and clients, are my favourite element of working here and I’m excited to take on this next chapter in my career.”

Nelsons’ chief executive Stewart Vandermark added: “Peter has been a real asset to the team in Leicester since joining in 2018. His previous experience and hard work has enabled him to progress quickly, and I would like to congratulate him on his promotion – I look forward to seeing him thrive in his new role.”
