Geldards’ Midlands Commercial team continue to grow 

Derby Office Icon

 

Geldards’ Midlands-based Commercial team continue to grow from strength to strength as the team continues to expand in size and workload.

The team has recently been joined by two permanent additions, as two members of the team qualify as solicitors; Daniel Greatorex, who qualified in April and William Occleston, who qualified in September.

Heading up the team is Partner Michelle Craven-Faulkner, alongside Partner Jamie Goldberg. Other members of the team are Solicitor Joel Murphie, Solicitor Ellis Pugh and Trainee Solicitor Yasmine Roff.

Revenue grew by 28% compared to last year and the increase carried on through the usually quiet month of August, which is often unheard of in the commercial law world and to accommodate for the increase in growth in all directions, the team plans to expand from its Derby base, into Nottingham, to split the workload between teams across both offices and service client demand.

New clients to the firm include key players in the rail, sport and IT sectors and the team are currently working on developing products for SMEs and start-ups to offer a cost effective solution to those looking to take their business to the next step, alongside an innovative retainer arrangement which has already been well received by a number of existing clients.

The team received excellent ranking and recommendations in the recent legal directories, including retaining their Tier 1 status in the Legal 500 with Michelle Craven-Faulkner being named as a Recommended Lawyer and Jamie Goldberg named as a Leading Individual for Sport.

Head of the team, Michelle, said:

“I’m so proud to head up such a wonderful and hardworking team; the increasing strength of our of team is a real testament to its members, as it shows the hard work and high quality advice they deliver to our clients every day is impactful and allows our clients to see us as trusted advisors.”

“As one of the largest Commercial law teams in the East Midlands, I am excited to see what the future brings and look forward to expanding our services across both offices. The Geldards’ Commercial team work very hard for our clients and I would like to thank each member for always giving their all.”
