Leading Gloucestershire law firm, WSP Solicitors has appointed six Directors to invest in the future of the business. The move is part of a succession plan formulated by Managing Director, Judi Bonham and Commercial Director, Peter Mardon, with a view to transitioning ownership of the successful long-standing business into new hands by 2026.
The investors include current WSP Directors Amy Leivers (Head of Commercial Property), Kirstie Carr (Head of Private Client) and Lucy McCallum (Head of Residential Property). Joining the young, diverse team are Camella Cephas (Associate Solicitor, Childcare), Robert Selwood (Deputy Head of Private Client) and Silas Miller (Marketing Manager).
The new team will be bringing over 80 combined years of legal and marketing experience to the table as well as fresh, new ideas on the direction of WSP Solicitors work in the county.
Of the move, Judi Bonham said “We have been thinking about the future of our business and how best to leave it in safe hands for the benefit of our loyal and valued clients and employees, so, despite offers from other law firms, we preferred continuity and have assembled a strong team that we feel are perfect to take WSP into the future and best serve our clients and community”. “Each member of the new team brings their own energy, knowledge and experience to the table and we are confident they will continue to grow WSP Solicitors as a leading provider of legal services in the county in the best interests of our clients”.
The succession project will run over the next four years as the six new Invested Directors take on greater responsibilities in the business and the local community.
