We are pleased to be starting our new Financial Year with the announcement that four of our key members of staff have become Equity Partner as of 1st May.
Suzanne Foster, Jason Evans and Tom Bessant are all being promoted from Partner to Equity Partner, whilst Ashley Partridge will scale the ranks to Equity Partner from his current position as an Associate.
Suzanne is currently Partner and Head of Family and Relationships, working exclusively in family law since 2003 when she qualified as a Solicitor. Based in Andover, she joined Parker Bullen in 2016 and offers her clients first class advice in all matters of family law, with a particular specialism in supporting families in the Military.
Jason was recruited by the firm as a Partner in March 2021 to head up the new Romsey office. He, too, deals with family law, specialising in divorce cases involving business interests and complex issues. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives, a trained Mediator and a Collaborative Lawyer.
Tom, meanwhile, looks after clients in the property sector using his 10 years of expertise to advise on the acquisition of investments let to blue chip tenants. As a residential and commercial property owner himself, he is uniquely placed to share his insight and knowledge.
And finally, Ashley, a qualified Chartered Legal Executive and Chartered Tax Adviser, is being promoted to Equity Partner from his current position as Associate and Head of Wills, Probate and Estate Planning. He has been a member of the Parker Bullen Private Client team since 2018 with a specific interest in advising on tax and estate planning.
Gareth Horner, Managing Partner, Parker Bullen, comments: “We are extremely fortunate at Parker Bullen to have such legal giants in the making. Each one of these lawyers has proved their worth with their incredible loyalty, hard work and dedication to the business. They each have their own strengths and specialisms, with which they have built up excellent working relationships both with their clients and other staff members. We have no doubt that they will be an absolute asset to the firm and to the legal industry in years to come.”
