New Starters Welcomed

We have recently welcomed an array of new faces to our Cheltenham head office.

We have seen growth in several areas of the business, resulting in new additions to our Commercial Property, Commercial, Corporate, Residential Property and Business Development departments.

Cara Forrest, Laura Pitcher, Thomas Christie and Annie Pickering have all joined our growing Property team. Cara joins Commercial Property as an Associate Solicitor with ten years’ experience, whilst Laura joins the department as a Solicitor, arriving from Freshfields in London. Thomas and Annie have both started as Paralegals and will be helping to support the busy team’s workload on both the commercial and residential side.

The Commercial team welcomed Solicitor Helen Martinelli to their four-strong team. Helen joins from Kidwells Law Solicitors in Hereford.

James Morgan joins Corporate as a Paralegal, having made the move from Shoosmiths in Birmingham.

Finally, the Business Development team has also had a new arrival with Claire Leadbeater joining as Business Development Manager. Claire joins us at an exciting time, following the recent launch of our new brand.

John Workman, Senior Partner at BPE commented, “It’s great to see so many new faces around the office. We’re an entrepreneurial firm and have brought in a crowd of young people who I believe will greatly contribute to the ongoing development of the firm. We hire for experience, character and commitment to clients and colleagues – these guys have all that in spades! ”
