Hat-trick of senior promotions for Shoosmiths’ Nottingham office

Shoosmiths has promoted three members of its Nottingham office.

The promotions round sees Su Kemp become a partner, Charlotte Thomas step up to legal director and Will Thomas take on the role of principal associate.

Su enters Shoosmiths’ partnership after joining the law firm in 2015 as a non-contentious real estate solicitor with a recognised specialism in retail and a broad experience of dealing with complex matters for property occupiers.

Su’s focus as partner will be on accelerating Shoosmiths’ growth in Nottingham – adding to both its UK-wide real estate client base and the office’s team, which now totals 77 staff.

Charlotte’s promotion will see her become a legal director in the firm’s banking and finance team, with experience in multimillion pound acquisition and leveraged finance transactions.

Will’s move to principal associate comes after successfully handling a number of major planning appeals and High Court challenges as part of Shoosmiths’ planning practice.

The trio of promotions follows Shoosmiths recently announcing a new head of office in Nottingham, with partner Michael Briggs taking the reins from Deborah Gordon-Brown.

Michael Briggs, partner and head of Shoosmiths’ Nottingham office, said: “Shoosmiths is building something special in Nottingham. The full-service office is home to over 70 staff and boasts a client base that features some of the biggest companies and brands in the UK across multiple industries.

“This latest round of promotions shows the talent we have in Nottingham, while also demonstrating that Shoosmiths is a firm where you can get ahead and build a career.

“We’d like to congratulate Su, Charlotte and Will on their new positions and look forward to working with them and the wider team to deliver the office’s growth plans.”

The promotions at its Nottingham office forms part of a firm-wide promotions round for Shoosmiths, which sees the firm appoint seven new partners, nine new legal directors and a cohort of principal associates and associates.
