Law firm Armitage Sykes has promoted two key personnel to director level.
Ruth Miller, who deals with family law, and John Burnett, who specialises in dispute resolution (both pictured above) take up their posts with immediate effect.
Ms Miller, who qualified as a solicitor in 1999, is a member of the Law Society’s Childrens Penal and the Family Law Accreditation Scheme.
She is also a trained collaborative lawyer and a member of Resolution.
Mr Burnett has specialised in civil and commercial litigation, including employment law for more than 15 years.
In his early career, he worked for the Crown prosecution Service before specialising in litigation.
Rob Kelly, managing director of the firm, which has offices at New North Road in Huddersfield, said: “We pride ourselves on our people-focused culture.
“The appointment of Ruth and John is a testament to their achievements and sends a positive message that the firm values the contributions of its people.”
