Double Hire for Brabners as Law Firm Continues to Grow

21st October 2021, 4:13 pm

Independent law firm Brabners has continued to strengthen its support for commercial and high net worth clients with two new partner hires. The firm has appointed property litigation specialist Jessica Parry within its 95 lawyers-strong real estate team, while Amanda Bailey joins to add significant wills, tax and family trust expertise to its private client team.

The two appointments follow a period of significant investment across the firm, which has seen it named in the ‘UK 100 Best Companies to Work For’ list for the second consecutive year and also ranked by Best Companies as the 3rd best law firm to work for in the UK.

Jessica joins from the Manchester office of international firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, having previously spent five years in London with Charles Russell Speechlys. With over 12 years’ experience of contentious property matters, she has worked on a range of high-profile corporate landlord and tenant disputes, with previous clients including Tesco, Blackrock and investment management firm Hermes.

Amanda Bailey joins from DTM Legal where she was head of the trust and estates team. She is recognised by the Legal 500 as a ‘Next Generation Partner’ and was one of four lawyers shortlisted internationally for the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Trusted Advisor of the Year Award. A fully qualified member of STEP, she brings more than 10 years’ experience of providing legal advice to private individuals, business owners and agricultural estates spanning wills, trusts, probate, family investment companies and tax planning.

Nik White, managing partner at Brabners, said: “The pandemic and Brexit have created a range of new challenges for clients across both our commercial and private client practices – be they related to matters such as high street rent arrears or the management of family estates. All such evolving issues require specialist support, which is why we’ve moved to further strengthen our offering across the board. In Jessica and Amanda, we are adding two exceptional and highly regarded lawyers to an increasingly diverse partnership which is committed to making the difference and helping our clients to achieve their ambitions.

“I look forward to seeing them further shape – and thrive within – the positive and welcoming culture which we continue to nurture and enhance at our firm.”
