Mr Joyce said: “We are delighted to welcome David to the firm. His experience and expertise will be vital in supporting us on the next stage of our growth.
“I am proud of what Ramsdens has accomplished over the past 10 years and David’s extensive business experience and his advice and guidance will be invaluable as Ramsdens continue to go from strength to strength.”
Mr Bradley said: “Ramsdens is an excellent, progressive law firm with traditional values and I am looking forward to working with the partners during the next stage of its development.“
His role as non-executive chairman will focus on the development of an agreed strategy and working with the partners and leadership team to help implement that strategy.
