Top 200 law firm, BPE Solicitors, has seen the return of two of its solicitors. Laura Pitcher and Adam Kean have both re-joined BPE as Senior Associates, boosting the firm’s Commercial Property and Corporate teams.
Laura returns to the Commercial Property team from Charles Russell Speechlys in Cheltenham and Adam to the Corporate team from TLT in Bristol.
Adam brings experience in mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity investments, and restructuring and reorganisations. His sector specialism lies in renewable energy across all technologies, and in the last 18 months has been involved in buying and selling energy companies that have produced 555 megawatts of energy which has an enterprise value of circa £646 million.
Laura advises commercial clients on complex and challenging commercial property transactions and has significant experience in the acquisition, disposal, structuring and management of property portfolios, particularly in the supported living and social housing sector.
On his return to BPE, Adam said: “I’m very excited to be re-joining BPE where I will be working with its talented lawyers and for some of its enviable clients. BPE is dynamic, ambitious and has a proven track record of delivering high quality, specialist legal advice and I am very happy to return to this well-respected firm.”
Laura said: “It’s great to be back in the BPE office. The informal atmosphere and the friendly environment make for a relaxed buthard-working culture that I enjoy. Emphasis is put on building strong relationships with clients and providing valuable advice on all property-related matters.”
BPE’s Deputy Senior Partner, Antonia Shield, said: “It’s a real testament to the great culture at BPE that Adam and Laura have chosen to return. They are now bringing their knowledge and experience back to the firm, something which we will all benefit from, and I look forward to supporting both their careers going forward.”
