Regional law firm Thrings’ plans for expansion in the south of England have taken a further step forward.
The firm has appointed rural and agriculture specialist, Mark Charter, and private client expert, Rachel Brooks, as partners.
Mark and Rachel, who join from regional law practice Blake Morgan, will head up Thrings’ new office in Southampton.
The addition of the new partners will further strengthen Thrings’ specialist agriculture team – the largest of any UK law firm – and enhance the expert support available to the farming community in the south-east, where Thrings is a member of the NFU Legal Panel for seven counties.
Mark and Rachel – who will be based at Thrings’ new premises at International House on the Southampton International Business Park – will also work closely with their corporate, commercial, family and private client colleagues in the firm’s London, Bristol, Bath and Swindon offices.
Mark comments: “Thrings is a well-established law firm in the south of England, which has developed a reputation for consistently providing first-class legal advice to clients.
“The firm’s ethos of building and maintaining long-term relationships, both with clients and professional colleagues, is one which Rachel and I share.
“We are very much looking forward to continuing our working relationship, complementing Thrings’ offering and taking it to clients in Hampshire and the surrounding area.”
Rachel comments: “Mark and I are very pleased to be joining Thrings, and to be adding our knowledge and experience to its existing agriculture and landed estates practice.
“The firm has a strong presence in London and the South West, and we are tremendously excited to have the opportunity to contribute to its geographical expansion and play a key role in the ongoing provision of specialist legal advice to new and existing clients.”
Thrings is expected to announce details of further appointments in Southampton in the coming months.
