BPE Solicitors is pleased to announce that Antonia Shield, head of BPE’s Commercial Property Team, has been promoted to the role of Deputy Senior Partner.
Antonia, who joined the Top 200 law firm in February 2002, has been an Equity Partner since 2010. Antonia has extensive experience personally advising some of the UK’s most successful retail and leisure brands during her career including Superdry, Pure Gym, Golden Tulip and Wyevale, in addition to heading up BPE’s 30-strong Property team. Her promotion to the role of Deputy Senior Partner will now see Antonia taking a more prominent role representing the wider business alongside Senior Partner John Workman.
Antonia takes over the role of Deputy Senior Partner from Philip Radford who remains a member of the firm’s management team with particular responsibility for risk and compliance.
“Antonia is an exceptional lawyer, highly regarded by colleagues and clients alike,” says John Workman. “I’m delighted that Antonia will take a greater leadership role as we continue to build the business, develop our talented team of lawyers and support our clients to achieve the best possible outcomes through BPE’s ‘can do’ approach to law.”
