Leading law firm Cains is expanding its litigation department with the appointment of Andrew Newton as an Associate.
Andrew, 27, joins top ranking Douglas-based Cains after four years with Appleby where he was a lawyer in dispute resolution.
“Cains is an exciting challenge and I am enthused by the opportunity presented to me” said Andrew, who was born on the island and went to Castle Rushen High School. This was followed by the University of Durham and a BA in Business and then in 2010 Manchester College of Law, graduating in 2012.
Andrew added: “When I met with the Cains team I found the whole experience very engaging and I’m very much looking forward to my new role.”
The range of work Andrew will undertake in the litigation team at Cains will be a range of corporate and commercial disputes including banking and trust litigation. Peter Clucas, managing director of Cains’ litigation department, is delighted to welcome Andrew to his team. He said “Andrew has a keen intellect and, although only recently joining us, he has already demonstrated his ability to provide a high class service to our clients. Andrew will broaden the range of talent which we can offer to our clients and I look forward to seeing Andrew succeed in his new role.”
Last year Andrew was the representative for the Isle of Man at the Commonwealth Youth Parliament in Darwin, Australia, and was elected Prime Minister of the Parliament.
His other interests include being trustee of Isle of Man charity DO! Developing Orphans which provides for the education of orphans in northern Uganda and is also secretary of the United Nations Association of the Isle of Man.
