Geldards’ Midlands Commercial team continue to grow

Geldards’ Midlands-based Commercial team continue to grow from strength to strength as the team continues to expand in size and workload.

The team has recently been joined by two permanent additions, as two members of the team qualify as solicitors; Daniel Greatorex, who qualified in April and William Occleston, who qualified in September.

Heading up the team is Partner Michelle Craven-Faulkner, alongside Partner Jamie Goldberg. Other members of the team are Solicitor Joel Murphie, Solicitor Ellis Pugh and Trainee Solicitor Yasmine Roff.

Revenue grew by 28% compared to last year and the increase carried on through the usually quiet month of August, which is often unheard of in the commercial law world and to accommodate for the increase in growth in all directions, the team plans to expand from its Derby base, into Nottingham, to split the workload between teams across both offices and service client demand.

New clients to the firm include key players in the rail, sport and IT sectors and the team are currently working on developing products for SMEs and start-ups to offer a cost effective solution to those looking to take their business to the next step, alongside an innovative retainer arrangement which has already been well received by a number of existing clients.

The team received excellent ranking and recommendations in the recent legal directories, including retaining their Tier 1 status in the Legal 500 with Michelle Craven-Faulkner being named as a Recommended Lawyer and Jamie Goldberg named as a Leading Individual for Sport.

Head of the team, Michelle, says:“I’m so proud to head up such a wonderful and hardworking team; the increasing strength of our of team is a real testament to its members, as it shows the hard work and high quality advice they deliver to our clients every day is impactful and allows our clients to see us as trusted advisors.”

As one of the largest Commercial law teams in the East Midlands, I am excited to see what the future brings and look forward to expanding our services across both offices. The Geldards’ Commercial team work very hard for our clients and I would like to thank each member for always giving their all.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
