Promotions Help Firm Increase Market Share; A Round-Up of News from the Region's Legal Sector in The


A Midland law firm has celebrated the success of its staff announcing five promotions.

As part of its strategy to build its core services, Wright Hassall has promoted the quintet, in order to move forward with its aim to increase market share in key areas.

Russell Spencer has been promoted to associate in the residential development team. He has worked for the firm for the last 13 years and has built up an enviable reputation advising private developers and registered providers on small to medium sized property transactions and development work across the country. Mary Rouse has been with the company for 21 years and specialises in debt recovery and residential property disputes, acting for social housing clients, lenders, private landlords and large corporate clients.

Ms Rouse has secured promotion to senior associate with a view to leading a new team in the creation of a bespoke fixed fee unit, working across the dispute resolution group.

Also in property dispute resolution, Claire-Elaine Arthurs has secured a new role as an associate after two years with the firm.

Ms Arthurs deals with commercial, residential and agricultural property issues, as well as supporting social housing providers. Her clients range from multinational PLCs to local individuals.

Meanwhile, Peter Dixon has been promoted to legal director in Wright Hassall's business immigration team.

Mr Dixon has over 20 years experience in immigration law and primarily works with corporate clients, advising them on the relocation of key staff to work in the UK from overseas.

Rita Rajput has been promoted to the role of associate in the corporate team. She has six years of experience within the firm, working across transaction services and investments for SMEs and larger corporates.

Incumbent supplier Rolls-Royce will regenerate the existing infra-structure at its site at Raynesway with advanced nuclear reactor core production facilities, generating another 40 years' use from the current production site.

Mr Hamlett said: "For MOD, this contract is an important step in securing the future defence needs of the nation. The team has worked closely with MOD's commercial team to get to this point.

"As an experienced adviser to the ministry, our knowledge of its objectives ensured we could help it move forward and achieve its goals."

The contract secures 300 jobs at Rolls-Royce and will see construction of new buildings to replace existing facilities that have reached the end of their useful lives.

Legal advice to Rolls-Royce was provided by Rolls-Royce legal, Nick Manassei, and by Freshfields, led by Emma Kendall.
