Moorcrofts bolster its senior corporate team to meet rising demand

Nicola Bennett has joined Moorcrofts as a senior associate in the corporate team to meet the needs of the firm’s expanding work load and increasing client base. The team, headed up by renowned corporate partner Teri Hunter is now 11 strong, including 4 partners.

Nicola joins Moorcrofts from reputable law firm, Freeths, where she was a senior associate, based in London, specialising in a range of corporate matters including capital market transactions. She re-joins Moorcrofts after having trained and qualified with the firm back in 2008.

Nicola is highly experienced in corporate transactions, investments, restructurings and share schemes and has a well-established reputation in the corporate field. She also has extensive experience of both private practice and in-house work having spent five years working for a major Spanish infrastructure company and as sole legal counsel for a London based property consultancy firm. This, coupled with being highly motivated and commercially astute, plays to Moorcrofts strengths of being an in-house legal and business advisory team for its clients.

The appointment follows a period of rapid growth for Moorcrofts. Within the last two years, it has invested significantly within the practice. In the last 12 months alone, Moorcrofts has nearly doubled in size, now housing one of the largest corporate and commercial legal teams in the Thames Valley region, whilst at the same time as consolidating the 16% growth achieved by the firm in 2016-2017.

Teri Hunter, CFO and corporate partner said: “We’re delighted to welcome Nicola back to Moorcrofts. Her breath of knowledge and experience will aid the training of junior staff and enhance and bolster our senior corporate team to continue to provide outstanding client service and legal advice for our clients.”

Nicola Bennett, senior associate, said: “I am looking forward to continuing to develop my career and being involved in the ever-increasing growth of Moorcrofts. It is refreshing and exciting to be involved in such a dynamic and forward-thinking law firm, that prides itself on combining both legal advice and commercial understanding to ensure businesses achieve the desired outcomes they need to drive growth and success.”
