Morrisons Solicitors are delighted to announce the addition of 4 new partners to the firm.
Three of the new partners, Kellie Williams-Jauvel (Dispute Resolution), Graham Halsall (Property) and Greg Vincent (Corporate & Commercial) have been promoted internally, and Jonathan Turner (Residential Property) will join from Charles Russell Speechleys in September.
These additions to the partnership add real strength and depth to the services Morrisons provides to businesses and individuals across Surrey and south west London.
Morrisons’ managing partner, Paul Harvey, commented: ’I am thrilled to announce these four new partners. I am always excited when we recruit talented lawyers, and it’s particularly satisfying when a few years later we are able to bring them into the partnership. Greg, Kellie and Graham all joined us from larger City firms, and their promotions are in recognition of the outstanding contribution they have made to the firm and to our clients.
’Bringing Jonathan in from Charles Russell Speechleys demonstrates the ambitions we have as a firm. He adds a huge amount of experience to our residential property offering and will be a real asset to both our team and our clients.
’All of this comes at an exciting time for Morrisons. In June we were delighted to be awarded the silver accreditation against the Investors in People Standard, demonstrating our commitment to high performance through good people management. In addition we are moving our head office in Redhill into brand new premises in September. These modern offices will reflect who we are as firm and will provide both our clients and our team with a fantastic environment in which to meet and work.’
