New Associate joins Porter Dodson disputes team

UK Top 200 law firm Porter Dodson, based across Somerset and Dorset, has appointed a new Associate to their disputes team.  Helen Williams (pictured)  joins the firm with more than 15 years’ experience in the legal sector and specialises in property disputes.

Helen said: “I am delighted to join Porter Dodson, who have an excellent reputation as an employer of choice. Having grown up and lived in the South West for most of my life, I’m pleased to have joined a regional firm with its roots firmly established in the local community. 

Property litigation encompasses a broad range of disputes, ranging from residential and commercial landlord and tenant issues, contested boundaries, disputes over easements, leasehold enfranchisement, farming partnership disputes and breach of covenant, to name just a few.  I look forward to working with the team to expand the firm’s expertise in this area.”

Managing partner, Rob Fox, added: “Helen’s appointment to the firm is an integral part of the firm’s growth plan. Her wealth of experience in property litigation and her commercial approach will further strengthen our disputes team, which is ranked in Chambers HNW 2021. The firm continues to grow and recruiting the right people to support that growth is key to the firm’s success.”

Porter Dodson employs nearly 200 people at its eight offices across the South West and has a number of vacancies for skilled and motivated lawyers and support staff.  To learn more about joining this award winning law firm, visit
