The promotion of BPE Solicitors’ Jo Bewley to Equity Partner has further strengthened the firm’s Board. She will take up the position from 1 October 2019.
Jo joined the firm in 2011 and in that time has established herself as an excellent client-facing lawyer as part of the Commercial Property Team, with a particular specialism in healthcare. She was recently promoted to Head of Property services and acts as a key client partner for a number of BPE’s largest clients including Mears Group, Pure Gym and Lilian Faithfull Care.
“I’m thrilled to have been given this opportunity to join the Owner Group,” said Jo. “It marks an exciting next step in my career as a lawyer and I’m delighted that it’s with BPE. We’re an ambitious firm and I’m very much looking forward to working with the rest of the Board as we take BPE forward.”
“Jo has become part of the bedrock of BPE,” said Senior Partner, John Workman. “Her qualities, not only as a lawyer, but as a manager and leader, meant it was a straightforward decision. We believe that as a firm, there is something a bit different about us which is centred around our ‘DNA’ and culture. Jo embodies this and we know that it’s something she will continue to champion in her new role. On behalf of the other Equity Partners, we congratulate Jo on her appointment to the Board.”
