Newcastle-based Peter Millican Law has appointed Jabad Jaigirdar as a partner in the firm.
The appointment reflects his contribution to the group’s growth in client base and turnover since he joined the firm in 2014. This growth led to Peter Millican Law advising on over £38 million worth of sales and acquisitions in 2017, a total deal value which is expected to be surpassed in 2018.
Jaigirdar specialises in advising on mergers and acquisitions, company restructures and shareholder agreements. Coming from a family of Tynemouth restaurateurs, he has developed an expertise in advising the leisure sector, alongside his established experience in finance and banking.
Jaigirdar commented: “I’m passionate about my work, and delighted to become a partner with an ambitious and well-respected law firm. With an increase in clients, and the firm being appointed to act on increasingly complex deals, Peter Millican Law has doubled its number of fee earners in the last 12 months alone, and we expect that growth to continue.
“Having extensive experience acting for prominent bar, hotel and restaurant operators, I’m now also targeting the London leisure sector and finding that Peter Millican Law’s clear focus as a company, specialist expertise and business practices are opening doors which will allow our growth to continue.”
Peter Millican, owner of the law firm, added: “Jabad’s promotion to partner reflects his passion not only for bringing in new clients, but also for delivering for each client. He is a great ambassador for the firm, and equally well an inspiration to less experienced staff. We’re proud to have him as a partner, and together looking forward to the company’s future.”
Prior to joining Peter Millican Law in 2014, Jaigirdar worked for Eversheds and Hay and Kilner Solicitors in Newcastle. Having worked in family restaurants as a teenager, he is a keen chef with a talent for Indian cuisine.
