Corporate team welcome appointment of senior lawyer

Turner Parkinson has welcomed former Brabners partner Adrian Rogers to its fast-growing Corporate team.

“We have been looking for some time to bolster our deal execution team with a high quality, experienced, technical lawyer, and in Adrian we have found someone who we think will bring both top level skills and a new dynamic to our team”, explained James Sheridan TP’s Head of Corporate. “Adrian will work together with David Hayes and Louise Chesher in managing our deal execution team, a key part of our internal focus on operational excellence.”

Rogers has been with Brabners for 15 years and explained the reasons behind his move: “I decided that now was the right time to look for a fresh challenge, and when I first spoke with James about how TP had developed its deals team over the last few years and the plans they have for the future, I realised that this was the challenge I had been looking for. In a market mostly populated by large, branded, multi-office firms, Turner Parkinson has grown into the number one independent and I am keen to get involved in helping the team with its plans for the future.”

The move comes at an opportune moment for TP. The firm is consistently ranked in the top 3 law firms for deal volume in the North West and in 2017 has worked on some market-leading deals. Sheridan commented: ”Looking back over recent months, we have sold Sterling Lloyd to GCP for $94m, helped Mobysoft with its investment from Livingbridge and advised the founders at Wilsons Insurance on its Inflexion-backed merger with Bollington Insurance. These are market-leading deals, and looking at our pipeline we have more to come over the next few months.

To continue to develop our deals business and deliver the market-leading quality of service that we demand of ourselves, it’s critical that we are able to get the right people into our team. We are very careful when it comes to selecting our people, but like any good team we only want the very best - both in terms of skills and attitude – as our business is all about our team delivering results for our clients. With this, we make no compromises and in Adrian I know we have someone who will help deliver further growth to our business.”
