After 35 years, family law solicitor Jonathan Brew is planning to step up, rather than wind down, his role in the community as he hands over the reins of senior partner of Harrison Clark Rickerbys in April.

Speaking about his change in role, Jonathan said: ’I am really looking forward to having more time to do one of the things I love most, which is getting out and about in Worcestershire among the communities and businesses who make up the fabric of the society we live and work in.’

Jonathan joined the firm in 1983, as a partner who, although originally tasked with taking over its criminal law practice, soon realised that there was a need for a family law team in Worcester. Whilst building such a team across the Three Counties he has also developed longstanding relationships with people and communities across the region.

Likewise, Richard Knight, is bringing his own vision to the role of senior partner and firm’s role in its localities. He said: ’As senior partner I want to engage with each of our seven offices, meet the teams and hear more about the work that colleagues do in and with their communities.’

Richard is a corporate law partner who joined Cheltenham law firm Rickerbys 29 years ago and became part of the wider firm when Rickerbys merged with Harrison Clark in 2013.
