Following on from the arrival of Andrew Campbell, Head of Pensions from Slaughter & May we have recently been joined by Corporate Law Partner, Liz Barton and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Paul Brent. 

Liz arrives from Cripps LLP and specialises in corporate and commercial work for UK private companies as well as foreign owned organisations entering and expanding into the UK. Liz has regularly appeared in Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession which describes her as “earning great respect from her clients”. This year’s feedback from The Legal 500 said that she was “extremely diligent” and the directory awarded her Next generation lawyer status which is given to people making a material difference to their firm’s offering. Areas Liz advises on include:

  • Shareholders' agreements and company constitutional documentation
  • Company and group reorganisations
  • Corporate governance and company formations
  • Mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • Secured lending
  • Management buy-ins/ buy-outs

Paul is an award winning sales and marketing expert. He has worked at some of the world’s most successful professional services businesses including international and national law firms helping them to stand out from competitors and bring on board and retain clients.  

Peter Doyle, Managing Partner comments -

“I’m pleased with both appointments and would like to welcome Liz and Paul to the firm. Liz’s expertise further expands our services and helps to cement our position as the UK’s leading and largest independent Workplace law firm. Paul’s experience of client acquisition, developing new services as well as communications, particularly in explaining how we differ to competitors in a way that clients and contacts find valuable, will help the firm continue to grow. They have joined at a very exciting time for the business and we will continue to actively recruit the very best legal advisers, specialist consultants and other professionals.”
