TWM Solicitors is pleased to announce the appointment of Jamie Berry as the firm’s new Managing Partner with effect from 1 August 2022, succeeding Matthew Truelove who, having served the permitted maximum 3 terms in office, now steps down following a successful 9 years in the role.
Jamie joined TWM Solicitors in 2011 and has been a Partner and Head of the Business Law team since 2012. Jamie acts for national and international clients on a wide range of corporate and commercial matters. He previously ran his own business and legal consultancy in British Columbia, Canada, and was also a Partner in a London law firm.
Commenting on his new appointment, Jamie said:
“It is a great privilege to be given this opportunity to continue the great work of my previous managing partners and to be able to contribute to the next phase in the firm’s evolution. I am very excited to work with our exceptionally talented staff in growing our business further and continuing with the delivery of our first class quality full service offering to our clients, in a cost-effective manner.
“On behalf of the firm, I would like to thank Matthew Truelove for his incredible work and commitment to the firm as the Managing Partner over the last 9 years. Matthew led the firm through some historically difficult times, not least the pandemic, from which we have emerged stronger than ever, and the firm has benefitted from his great leadership.”
Matthew Truelove, who will continue as Partner in the Commercial Property team, added, “I would like to thank my colleagues for their hard work, support and friendship during my term as Managing Partner – it has been a real pleasure and honour to have held such a privileged role for the last 9 years, and it is an equal pleasure to hand over the reins to Jamie for the years ahead. I wish him all the best for his term in office.”
Partner, David Powell, succeeds Jamie Berry as Head of the firm’s Business Law team.
Alongside these management changes, the firm is also pleased to announce 5 new promotions: Simon Burdett-Dixon has been promoted to Partner in the Dispute Resolution team, Alison Jones has been promoted to Managing Associate in the Commercial Property team, Victoria Butt has been promoted to Associate in the Commercial Property team. Blaise Joubert and Rebecca Westwood have successfully completed their training contracts with the firm, and have joined as Assistant Solicitors in the Dispute Resolution team.
