The Wilkes Partnership are delighted to announce the promotion of three new partners – Ann-Marie Aston, Mark Hodgson and Andrew Watts – as part of our 2017 promotions.
Mark Abrol, managing partner at Wilkes, comments: “After a period of growth since the beginning of 2017, which has seen the firm expand and take on ten new members of staff, it’s great to recognise the strong client relationships and contribution to the firm that Ann-Marie, Mark and Andrew have made across the private client and commercial property departments respectively. We’re really pleased to welcome them to the partnership.”
Ann-Marie Aston is part of the private client team, specialising in Court of Protection and private client work. Mark Hodgson and Andrew Watts are both in the commercial property team, with Mark specialising in the retail and leisure sectors, and Andrew experienced in the industrial, health and telecommunications sectors.
These promotions accompany the promotion of four other solicitors across our Birmingham and Solihull offices. Emma-Louise Green (contentious probate), Mike Linford (corporate), Sian Kenkre (family) and Sophie Fenn (private client) have also all been promoted to associate.
