Top ranking law firm Lodders Solicitors continues to invest in its thriving Cheltenham practice with a clutch of new hires.
The firm has made three appointments, including that of Tim Labrum who has joined as associate in its agriculture practice, growing the firm’s Cheltenham team to 27, and now by well over five-fold since its launch in the town in 2013.
Originally from Cheltenham (when his contemporaries would have known him as Tim Jones) and having decided to return to the region, Tim, an agricultural law specialist and a member of the Agricultural Law Association and the CLA, joins Lodders after working in Cumbria and the North West for over ten years.
At Lodders’ Cheltenham practice, he will advise the firm’s farming, landowning and rural enterprise clients on all aspects of agricultural law, including sales, purchases and lending, tenancies, partnership agreements, grazing agreements and land registration.
Also joining Lodders’ Agriculture team is Paralegal Emily Packer. The team, which operates across the South West and Midlands, is led by partner and team head James Spreckley.
Lodders’ Cheltenham practice has also added new starter Leah Townsend who joins its administrative support team.
Nick Rowe, partner and joint head of the Cheltenham practice, says: “Since 2013, Lodders’ Cheltenham practice has gone from strength to strength and the firm continues to invest in recruiting quality individuals, its legal specialists and client service, to maintain Lodders’ position as one of the premier law firms in the region.”
Founded over 230 years ago, Lodders is a premier law firm in Cheltenham, Stratford upon Avon, Birmingham and Henley in Arden. The firm has 25 partners and over 130 fee earners and support staff across its office network. With its portfolio of sector and market specific top-ranking legal teams, the firm has recorded year-on-year growth in recent years.
From its Cheltenham office on Montpelier Parade the firm provides a full range of legal services for its rural and private clients as well as businesses, charities and other organisations.
