Gherson Solicitors elevates three lawyers to partnership to strengthen practice areas


The London law firm appoints Thomas Cattee, Elizabeth Uttley, and Amalia Gherson as partners, reinforcing expertise in key legal domains

Gherson Solicitors LLP, a prominent London-based law firm, proudly announces the promotion of Thomas Cattee, Elizabeth Uttley, and Amalia Gherson to the partnership. This strategic move aims to bolster the firm's capabilities across various practice areas, with the trio joining Founding Partner Roger Gherson and International Protection Partner Charles Burnett at the helm.

Thomas Cattee, previously a Principal Investigative Lawyer and Prosecutor at the Serious Fraud Office, brings his extensive experience to lead the White-Collar Crime, Extradition, INTERPOL, and Sanctions department. His expertise in handling high-profile cross-border cases involving complex financial crimes, extradition, bribery, and corruption enhances the firm's capabilities in navigating intricate legal landscapes.

As UK Inbound Immigration Partner, Lisa Uttley specialises in serving individuals and ultra-high-net-worth families across diverse UK immigration and nationality applications. Uttley's track record of success in handling complex matters, including challenges against the Home Office via Judicial Review, strengthens the firm's immigration practice, particularly in matters involving discretionary elements and judicial interventions.

Amalia Gherson, appointed as International Protection and Sanctions Partner, leads the firm's efforts in high-profile cases related to asylum and protection claims, Immigration Tribunal appeals, and sanctions-related challenges. Her adeptness in coordinating multi-jurisdictional matters and providing UK sanctions compliance advice reinforces the firm's position in handling complex international legal issues.

These appointments mark a significant milestone for Gherson Solicitors LLP, only the second cohort of solicitors to ascend to partnership since the firm's restructuring to an LLP in 2022. The firm's evolution from its founding in 1988 as an immigration practice to its current stature encompassing diverse legal domains underscores its commitment to excellence and growth.

Founding Partner Roger Gherson expressed confidence in the new appointments, emphasising the firm's dedication to providing clients with top-tier legal services amid global uncertainties. He highlighted the exceptional talent and dedication demonstrated by Cattee, Uttley, and Gherson, affirming the firm's commitment to nurturing and promoting outstanding legal practitioners.

The promotions, effective from 2nd April 2024, reflect Gherson Solicitors LLP's unwavering commitment to delivering excellence and reinforcing its position as a leading legal firm in London.
