Amanda Beresford – Schofield Sweeney

Schofield Sweeney recruited former Shulmans LLP planning head Amanda Beresford to launch a new practice for the firm in August 2020. She also previously led the Leeds planning team at Addleshaw Goddard, and is a qualified planner, as well as president of the Leeds Chamber of Commerce and chair of its planning group. She is well regarded for ‘providing advice that is both expert and straightforward at the same time’, and her ability to ‘steer clients on much more than just the legal position’. She works in tandem with environmental head Craig Burman, and has brought over a significant number of clients from her former firm.
