Kay appointment to launch new corporate and commercial offering

LEADING North West law firm Jackson Lees is widening out its offering with the launch of a new corporate and commercial department. 

The firm has appointed Charlotte Mills, a highly experienced and well-regarded corporate and commercial expert, to head up the new department.

With over 15 years’ corporate experience, Charlotte trained in the South East and then spent seven years working for a Lancashire based firm before making the move to Manchester where she has practised since 2013.

Charlotte’s focus for the new department centres on developing and nurturing outstanding client relationships and working collaboratively with both business owners and their wider professional adviser network.

The department will be primarily focused on supporting SME business owners across the North West as they look to manage change in their companies. Jackson Lees is committed to offering an accessible and friendly service for clients that helps them to understand where they stand in relation to legal services without unnecessary formality or confusing legal jargon.

Charlotte and her team will provide clients with a wide range of corporate law support, ranging from general advice and guidance on the rules of running a business, to complex restructures, from starting up a new business, to selling companies when the owners are ready to say farewell.

She will also work closely with the accountancy community to support and assist clients who need help making changes to the ownership structure of their business or who may be altering their finance arrangements such as re-banking or increasing investment in the business.

Charlotte said: “People and relationships are at the heart of a successful legal practice, so it’s brilliant to be joining a firm with such a positive culture. The team at Jackson Lees genuinely cares about their people and clients and it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to be building a new department within this thriving, forward-looking firm. This is a challenging time for business, so we’re looking forward to being able to support our clients and provide the clarity and guidance they need as they navigate this uncertain landscape.

“I have developed a strong network with businesses and the professional advisor network across the North West, with many years’ experience working collaboratively with corporate clients as they look to navigate and implement change within their businesses.

“I’m looking forward to building a fully-fledged corporate and commercial department with Jackson Lees, with an approachable, expert team committed to working in partnership with our clients and their professional advisors across Liverpool, Wirral, Manchester and the wider region.”

Esther Leach, Managing Director at Jackson Lees Group said: “I am really excited about the launch of the corporate and commercial department as it expands the services Jackson Lees is able to provide to our clients and means we now have a full service offering. This is a key milestone for the firm and we look forward to working closely with the region’s businesses to provide the expert legal guidance they need to fulfil their corporate ambitions.

“Charlotte is a highly experienced, outstanding practitioner who brings real warmth and approachability to this role, coupled with a brilliant and long-standing track record of working closely with business owners to deliver elegant solutions to their legal requirements.

“Charlotte’s experience and her commitment to nurturing and developing positive relationships aligns strongly with Jackson Lees Group’s core ethos of Making a Positive Difference and she was a natural choice to launch and lead this new department. We are delighted to have her on board and look forward to seeing this department grow and thrive under her leadership.”
