The Commercial team welcomed Solicitor Helen Mandeville to their four-strong team. Helen joins from Kidwells Law Solicitors in Hereford.

Finally, the Business Development team has also had a new arrival with Claire Leadbeater joining as Business Development Manager. Claire joins the firm at an exciting time, following the recent launch of their new brand.

John Workman, Senior Partner at BPE commented: “It’s great to see so many new faces around the office. We’re an entrepreneurial firm and have brought a crowd of young people who I believe will greatly contribute to the ongoing development of the firm. We hire for experience, character and commitment to clients and colleagues – these guys have all that in spades!”
