When you start the process of buying a business, it’s common to feel overwhelmed by the complexities, especially when it comes to the legal details. At WSP Solicitors, we’re known...
WSP wish a fond farewell to Nigel Sherwood after 35 years and welcome new Director and Associate.
At the end of June this year leading Gloucestershire based law firm WSP Solicitors wished a fond farewell to long standing Partner and Head of Property, Nigel Sherwood, as he retired from the firm.
After qualifying as a solicitor in 1979, Nigel moved to Stroud and joined WSP in 1984 where he became a partner in 1987 focusing predominantly in Property Law. He has a strong affection for both the area and its community.
Nigel expressed pride at “being part of the firm for over 35 years” as well as “employing great people with tremendous skills and being able to have an impact on their lives”. Thanking Judi Bonham and Peter Mardon, Managing Directors of WSP, Nigel continued to thank everyone and remark how he would miss the whole team very much.
Judi Bonham said “Nigel has made a huge contribution to WSP Solicitors over the years he has been a Partner. He has guided and supported us through significant change and I both personally and on behalf of everyone at the firm, would like to wish him well and thank him for his dedication and commitment to our clients and staff at WSP Solicitors.”
In a pioneering move, WSP Solicitors has appointed Practice Manager, Joseph Mullis, as an invested Director.
Joseph has worked in the Legal services sector as a Practice Manager since he graduated from University. Joseph commented “I am looking forward to working with Judi and Peter as a new team of Directors, continuing the great work WSP already does. Growing the firm, through continuing to offer great Solicitors and providing the best service to the communities we serve is paramount”.
On Joseph, Judi said “Joseph has contributed significantly to the continuing growth and strength of WSP Solicitors and I look forward to the outlook a new non-Lawyer Director will bring”.
Moreover, Amy Leivers will be promoted to an Associate Solicitor and take over from Nigel to step up as the Head of Commercial Property from the beginning of July. Amy joined WSP in 2017, after qualifying as a solicitor in 2003 and has specialised in Commercial Property since then.
“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead the already successful Commercial Property department. We will continue to build the team and support the local business community” said Amy.
“Since joining us” Judi said, “Amy has worked hard to maintain and grow the reputation of the department alongside Nigel Sherwood and is well placed to now lead that team”.
