Dominic joined the firm Ison Harrison in 2003 as an assistant solicitor to a relatively small Probate department to head up, which he has continued to do so for over 10 years.
Since then, under his direct supervision, the department has grown more than six times the size. We now have a Private Client offering in all of our offices, and we believe the department, which holds nearly 30,000 wills, is the largest and broadest Private Client department of its type in Leeds.
Dominic has trained most of the fee earners in the department, with them generally spending at least a year under his direct supervision. He is enormously proud of this and having never having paid recruitment fees. Continuous training and development of his staff has always been a top priority, as demonstrated by the fact that none of his team have ever left and that a number of his "graduates" have quickly established their own caseloads and reputations within the field.
Dominic is at heart a fee earner. He relishes being a fee earner and he leads by example. Although his caseload is mainly non contentious, having been originally trained as a family lawyer, he is equally happy with contentious probate work.
His advice is often sought by other members of the firm and by other professionals such as accountants, financial advisers and other lawyers.
He would say that his best skill is that he goes the extra mile for his clients.
He is proud to have been the firm's training partner for 7 years and even prouder of the trainees the firm has produced during this time.
Dominic became an equity partner in 2008 aged 33.« Go back Email Dominic Mackenzie »
