Experienced solicitor joins Hewitsons’ agriculture team

Law firm Hewitsons has strengthened its Agriculture & Rural Property team with the appointment of solicitor Mark Hicks.

Mark has joined the firm’s Northampton office, in Billing Road, as a Senior Solicitor, working alongside Partner Gareth Williams.

He brings with him more than 30 years’ experience of commercial property work, including a wide range of landlord and tenant matters, and both residential and commercial developments.

He said: “Hewitsons has an enviable reputation and I’m looking forward to helping to add to the firm’s success.

“I’m excited to be taking on new projects and challenges and to be working alongside Gareth and the rest of the firm’s highly respected Agriculture & Rural Property team.”

Gareth added: “We are delighted to have Mark join our growing team. His experience is a welcome addition to the team and we are confident that he will be an excellent fit for the firm.”

Mark’s appointment forms part of an ongoing firmwide expansion at Hewitsons, which has offices in Cambridge, London, Milton Keynes and Northampton.

Over the past two years, the firm has made numerous additions to its various specialist teams, which together cover every major area of law.

Over the past 12 months in particular, Hewitsons has invested more heavily than ever in top legal talent, as well as everything from IT systems to infrastructure. This has come on the back of record revenue and profit levels.
