Peter Cusick Appointed Partner At Roythornes
Leading food and drink sector law firm Roythornes has announced the appointment of Peter Cusick as a partner within its agriculture, food and litigation teams.

Described by Chambers UK, which ranks the best lawyers in the country, as “a brilliant legal mind”, Mr Cusick has a national reputation for agricultural and food cases

Chambers UK added: “He is incredibly efficient and immediate in his response. He is totally up-to-date with all the legal aspects of a dispute. He is very quick to grasp the essential implications of any situation, and to clearly see options to resolve the problem.”

Mr Cusick has a national reputation for agricultural and food cases including successfully handling complex cases against the Rural Payments Agency and DEFRA, particularly in the area of fruit and vegetable Producer Organisations (POs) and other subsidies.

Instructed by farmers whose livestock contracted Foot and Mouth Disease in 2007, he was central to an important test case against the Institute for Animal Health, DEFRA and others.

His cases often have a European dimension and he has acted in the European Court of Justice.

In addition, he also advised clients on a wide range of commercial disputes including partnership disputes, agency law, banking litigation and professional negligence claims.

He also acts on planning and environmental disputes with particular expertise in cases involving the adoption of sewerage systems.

Speaking about the appointment Peter Bennett, head of the food and drink team, said: “Peter is a fantastic addition to the Roythornes team – his breadth of experience and expertise speaks for itself.

“He has tremendous experience across a range of fields which I am sure will be invaluable to our clients.

“We’re delighted to have him as part of the team and believe this further solidifies our status as the leading practice in the food and drink sector.”

He is listed as a leading solicitor with the major legal directories and is also a CEDR Accredited Mediator.

Roberts Mart Announces New Managerial Appointments Following Multi-Million Pound Investment
A trio of managerial appointments are among 16 new jobs created by Roberts Mart & Co Ltd as a result of its multi-million pound investment at the company’s Leeds-based production facility to meet the growing demand from all industry sectors for its high performance packaging films.

Production Manager Mark Sarjantson, Assistant Technical Manager Jince Joy and Quality Manager Paul Melia all join the successful family-run firm, which also announced promotions for John Ambler, moving from Process Engineer Manager to Extrusion Production Manager and Tony Rymer, who takes on the role of Print Technical Manager after seven years as Shift Manager.

The addition of three highly experienced leaders to its managerial team at Aire Valley House will help drive the development across both the company’s sites in Leeds to meet the future strategic needs of one of the UK powerhouses of the flexible printing and packaging industry.

Mark Sarjantson, who has a proven track record in productivity improvements at his previous employers, said: “With the high level of investment and an improvement culture using lean manufacturing techniques, the future holds many opportunities for Roberts Mart.”

Sustaining Roberts Mart’s success in providing high value and quality products to many of the top UK brands is part of Jince Joy’s brief. He has a wealth of experience in the flexible packaging field, including a stint in the Middle East, and has been tasked with incorporating new technologies and driving innovation at all levels.

Completing the trio of new appointments is Paul Melia, who is responsible for maintaining the Quality Management System, including ISO9001 and BRC Standards. He will be focused on ensuring continuous improvement across all areas of the business.

Roberts Mart’s Managing Director, William Roberts, said: “The company is growing rapidly. These new appointments and the changes to our managerial team will drive the business forward and help it remain at the forefront of the flexible packaging industry.”

The business’s £2million investment in new equipment includes the BOBST 20SIX Flexo Eight Colour Printing Press - the latest in printing technology for the flexible packaging industry - a Nordmeccanica Super Simplex Laminator and Proslit Slitter Rewinder. This latest increase in capital expenditure takes Roberts Mart’s overall investment to just over £17.5m over the last 10 years.

Roberts Mart was founded by William Roberts in 1852 and from paper merchanting, commercial printing and producing paper bags it has now developed into one of the UK’s leading specialist producers of high performance packaging films used in a variety of industry sectors including food, beverage and household textiles like duvets.

Co-directors William and Ben are sixth generation of the Roberts family to run the firm, following in the footsteps of their father and chairman John, who has recently been given an Outstanding Contribution award by the British Printing Industries Federation after over 50 years’ service with the company. He handed over the day-to-day management in 2009 to his two sons but remains active in the business.
