Law firm banks on new team

LEGFIN Wright Hassall Banking Team

A Midlands law firm has made a major appointment to help head up a new Banking and Project Finance team.

Wright Hassall, named Regional Law Firm of the Year at the 2017 Lawyer’s Awards, has appointed Judith Gershon as partner with responsibility for real estate finance at the Leamington Spa-based firm.

She has moved from the international law firm Gowling WLG and joins the new six-strong team, led by corporate finance and banking partner, Keith Ainsworth.

The new team has been assembled to expand the firm’s banking and project finance offering which has grown significantly due to client demand.
