Tim, who joins the firm as a Partner previously worked for Richard Slade and Company Solicitors in Bristol, and before that international law firm Wragge & Co, where he trained and worked for five years after qualification in its employment team. He will be working alongside the head of the Employment team Lisa Gettins, advising businesses on a vast range of employment issues.

Commenting on his new role at BPE, Tim said: “I am thrilled to have been appointed Partner of such a well-regarded Law firm. I am particularly keen on working on a personal level with clients; to be seen as an extension of its workforce rather than an external lawyer, and BPE is exactly the kind of firm that allows me to do this.”
Head of Employment Lisa Gettins said of Tim joining the team: “I am delighted to have Tim on board. He is already proving to be a vital member of the team and to BPE in its entirety.”
