Nick Emmerson

We are delighted to announce that as from the 1st June 2020 Nick Emmerson, Partner at Gateley Legal, Board & Council Member at The Law Society of England & Wales becomes our new President at Leeds Law Society.

Nick, who has practiced in Leeds, Hong Kong, Shanghai and London, takes over from Ridley & Hall managing director Emma Pearmaine at a time when Leeds Law Society is operating virtually.

Nick said that he is proud of how the staff and volunteers that run Leeds Law Society have responded to the coronavirus pandemic and how they are dedicated to seeing the Society not just survive but thrive in these extraordinary times and beyond. All of the society’s 2020 events will be held on a virtual platform, with the ability to add a physical event as and when it is safe to do so. Its Diversity and Inclusion Week will go ahead virtually as planned in September. The society’s website will also be upgraded.
