Leading commercial law firm Thrings has strengthened its corporate offering to domestic and international clients with the appointment of Jonathan Morris as partner.

A highly-experienced corporate solicitor with more than 10 years’ experience of working with AIM-listed and owner-managed businesses, Jonathan joins Thrings from Bates Wells Braithwaite, where he was a senior associate.

Jonathan comments: “Last year the City saw a number of flotations as many established organisations made the decision to go public.

“It is clear that with the General Election on the horizon, firms are adopting a more cautious approach, but with a new government in place in May and a buoyant economy, that certainty will return to the stock market, prompting greater levels of activity and further significant investment opportunities.

“Thrings has a growing corporate presence in the London legal market due to its increased focus on equities and capital markets.

“As well as developing Thrings’ client base in London, I am very much looking forward to working closely with teams in the firm’s other offices and connecting London capital sources to businesses in the South West.”

Jonathan is listed as a ‘Rising Star’ in corporate finance law in the current Super Lawyers legal directory, Thomson Reuters’ research-driven, peer-recommended solicitor rating service.
