Law firm Wilsons Solicitors LLP has promoted three of their solicitors to equity partner: Rupert Wilkinson and Tim Fullerlove, both partners in the tax & tTrusts team, and Jon Ashbridge, partner in the commercial team.
These appointments come at a time of ambitious growth plans, with the firm seeking to expand the private client teams of both their Salisbury and London offices. The firm is keen to recruit more top talent across the South-West and London to better service their growing client base, whilst also rewarding the ambitious and hard-working lawyers in situ. These new equity partners will invest and help lead the charge of this expansion.
Rupert Wilkinson is a private client lawyer and has been at the firm since 2011. His work is primarily trusts and wills planning, and his clients are mostly individuals, trustees, and executors.
Jon Ashbridge specialises in real estate and commercial matters, advising a broad and diverse range of sectors on their finance and security arrangements, as well as on the acquisition, structuring, development and disposal of prime and country properties and businesses. He has been at Wilsons since 2019.
Tim Fullerlove joined Wilsons as a trainee in 2006 and advises both UK-based and international individuals on the management of their wealth and personal affairs, with a particular focus on tax and estate planning.
This increases the total number of equity partners at the firm to 21. Jon is based in Wilsons’ Salisbury office, with Rupert and Tim working across Salisbury and London.
Commenting on the promotions, Mike Parker, Wilsons’ managing partner says: “At Wilsons we value the hard work and efforts of our ambitious lawyers. Tim, Rupert and Jon are all highly experienced lawyers, who receive consistently excellent feedback from clients. We’re pleased to welcome them to the equity partnership at a time of expansion for the firm, and their investment will help further the firm’s reach and offering to clients in both Salisbury and London, in what has been a challenging period for many.”
