Flint Bishop hires new partner

Nationally recognised, award winning law firm and Marketing Derby Bondholder, Flint Bishop Solicitors, has this month welcomed Rachel Bennett as a new partner to the business. 

Rachel advises on a full range of corporate matters including acquisitions and disposals, shareholder and joint venture arrangements and private equity. Rachel has a strong reputation throughout the region and is recognised by Chambers and Partners for her “strength in the M&A and private equity sphere.” 

Rachel will be working alongside Partner and Head of Corporate, Martyn Brierley, and her appointment further strengthens the Corporate department’s highly regarded reputation for advising clients on high value and complex corporate transactions. This was reflected by the department’s involvement as legal advisors on three deals which were nominated for awards at the latest East Midlands Insiders Dealmaker Awards, including advisors on the East Midlands SME Deal of the year, being the sale of the national jewellery retailer, Chapelle Jewellery to Hilco Capital, the owners of the HMV entertainment group. 

Managing Partner for Commercial Services, Qamer Ghafoor comments “We are delighted to welcome Rachel Bennett to the firm. She has a fantastic reputation for delivering excellent legal advice to the clients she services. I am sure Rachel will settle into the department and wider business in no time and on behalf of the partnership, we wish her all the very best.”
