Excello Law, the fast-growing commercial law firm, has been joined by corporate and commercial lawyer Anca Thomson.
These latest hires come at a time when Excello Law is growing its presence across the UK and internationally. In December last year the firm opened up an office in Liverpool, closely followed by a Leeds office earlier this year. Last month the firm announced an alliance with US firm Rimon, broadening the firm’s international reach and strengthening its ability to take on cross-border work.
Anca Thomson qualified as a solicitor in 1999. Her career has included working at Sinclair Roche & Temperley, Norton Rose and Davies Lavery before setting up her own practice in 2004. Anca has worked extensively on privatisation projects and acquisitions by FTSE 100 companies in the emerging markets of Eastern Europe, including cross-border transactions and international joint ventures. She also advises on UK corporate transactions including share and business acquisitions, MBOs, private equity investments and joint ventures. Anca divides her time between France and the UK.
Excello Law is stepping up its search for entrepreneurial commercial lawyers both in the UK and internationally, it is in active discussions with lawyers across the country as well as in the USA and UAE amongst a number of other jurisdictions.
The firm’s managing director, George Bisnought, says: “I’m delighted to be able to welcome these latest recruits to Excello Law. Each bring with them many years’ experience advising clients on corporate and commercial matters, providing the kind of high-level legal advice that Excello clients are looking for. All of them appreciate the benefits that working for a firm like ours can bring to entrepreneurial lawyers who want greater flexibility and control over their careers. We expect to bring further hires of this calibre on board over the coming year as we continue to grow.”
