The new partners, Amanda and Gavin, both joined The Wilkes Partnership five years ago and have been on a path to partner in their fields of expertise ever since.

Gavin advises on a wide range of commercial disputes, from contractual disputes between businesses to breaches of warranty or covenant. He regularly advises on shareholder disputes and those relating to the operation and control of owner-managed businesses.

Nigel Wood, Senior Partner at The Wilkes Partnership, said “In the past year we have been handling an increasing number of high profile cases for clients across the firm. These promotions are not only deserved, but they reflect the progression opportunities across our firm and the ever growing expertise we have here across a wide range of disciplines.”

These latest appointments follow Stuart Tym as Head of Planning, Zara Reed as HR & Compliance Director and Kevin Lynch as Head of Contentious Probate.

Amanda Holden, Residential Conveyancing Partner at The Wilkes Partnership, says: “My time with Williamson & Soden and now The Wilkes Partnership has been an exciting learning curve presenting a wide range of experiences and challenges. At The Wilkes Partnership I’ve always felt that there is a culture of development which is one of the many reasons I’ve enjoyed being here since I started with Williamson & Soden over 15 years ago. I feel that those joining the firm as graduates can look forward to a long career of being supported throughout their development.”
