UK commercial law firm gunnercooke have boosted their national pensions team offering by appointing Suresh Bhatt as a partner to lead their pensions offering in the North West.
Suresh’s appointment further broadens the pensions practice and gunnercooke’s pensions offering to clients. The team provides a range of contentious, non-contentious, transactional and standalone advisory services.
Director of recruitment Laura Fisher said: ’We are delighted that Suresh has joined the gunnercooke pensions team. Suresh is widely respected in his field by clients and peers. He operates as a true trusted advisor to clients, which reflects gunnercooke’s values brilliantly. Over the past couple of years we have built a strong team in this field and we are looking forward to working with Suresh to develop a leading presence for pensions advice across the North West.’
Regarding his appointment, Suresh commented: ’I am absolutely thrilled that I am joining gunnercooke as a pensions partner. It’s a really exciting opportunity for me to be given the autonomy to develop client relationships and provide my pensions expertise without the constraints of a traditional law firm model. In the context of the firm’s 160 partner full service offering and the existing depth of pensions experience within the firm, the move was really a ”no-brainer” for me.’
