Leading law firm Blake Morgan has appointed nine of its senior lawyers as new Partners across its offices in London, the South Coast, Thames Valley and Wales.

The appointments, announced today, mark a significant milestone in the firm’s recent history, with a total of 20 lawyers joining the Partnership over the last financial year.

The appointments are across a range of practice areas and regions serviced by the firm, demonstrating Blake Morgan’s significant national presence and the versatility of its comprehensive offering.

In the firm’s London office, Oliver Weiss becomes a Partner. Oliver advises a range of clients from large multinational corporates to medium and small enterprises with specialisms in the recruitment, IT, charities, and retail and leisure sectors.

In Southampton, the new partners are Steve Cole in the Banking and Finance team, Real Estate specialist Daniel Curtis, Ed McMullen in the Built Environment Team and Kate New in Property Litigation.

In the Thames Valley, three new Partners are based in Blake Morgan’s Reading office. They are Rebecca North in the Banking and Finance Team, Employment law specialist Rajiv Joshi, and Michael Ward in Real Estate.

In Wales, Louise Howells of the firm’s Cardiff-based Real Estate team, also becomes a Partner.

Mike Wilson, Managing Partner at Blake Morgan, said: “I am incredibly proud to welcome these new Partners. Their appointments reflect Blake Morgan’s commitment to developing and retaining the people we want in the firm as part of our future.

“As a firm, we place huge value on our culture of mentoring, training and developing the talent that we have and this is demonstrated by our policy of promoting from within wherever possible.

“The new Partners, along with their colleagues, will play a key role in supporting Blake Morgan’s future growth as we build on our strength and depth as a leading national firm with a wealth of expertise across the full range of practice areas.”

The full service law firm is acknowledged within the legal industry and in the independent legal directories, as providing a first-class level of service across a wide range of services including employment, real estate, banking and finance, mergers and acquisitions; private equity, corporate governance; management buy-outs; transactions and joint ventures.
