What More has added to its management team with the appointment of its own company solicitor.
Tom O’Neill will be responsible for all of company’s legal requirements, including property matters, distribution and exclusivity agreements, copyright, trademark and design protection and day-to-day commercial activities.
“From the customer’s point of view a company with an in-house lawyer has a great advantage,” said O’Neill, “because agreements and contracts can be negotiated and concluded directly with customers, rather than having to instruct an external law firm. It’s so much quicker.”
Lancashire-based What More now employs 162 people.
