Reading Time: 2 minutes

Bennett Griffin LLP is delighted to announce the appointment of Jeremy Wootton into our expanding Commercial Property Team.  Jeremy has a wealth of experience having spent his career at Thomas Eggar LLP acting on many high-value commercial property deals.  Jeremy joins us on 5th May 2015.

Rob Fawcett, Head of Property at Bennett Griffin said, “This is an exciting opportunity for the firm as part of our strategic aim to continue and grow our offering to commercial clients across the South.  We identified some time ago that in order for the firm to continue to grow we needed to identify ways in which the firm could evolve to meet the demands and requirements of our clients and to be able to offer the best legal advice. Two possibilities come to mind a takeover or merger with another firm or the strategic appointment of key individuals into the core departments of the firm. We have opted on this occasion for the later and this now forms part of the firm’s strategy for growth which will enable us to further develop our market share of the legal sector across the south.   We will continue to bring great lawyers to the firm to complement our existing strength in providing excellent client focussed legal services for business and individuals”.

Jeremy brings with him an array of knowledge and experience which will be invaluable to our existing lawyers in the Property Department. His areas of expertise include residential and commercial development, site acquisitions, business expansion, property finance and investment property acquisitions to name just a few.

Jeremy says:

“Having lived in Worthing nearly all my life, I’m excited at the opportunity to once again work, as well as live in the town. The choice of joining Bennett Griffin was an easy decision. They are a vibrant firm with a clear focus on who they are and what they want to offer their clients. Like so many things in life, making a choice of a professional adviser is often influenced by recommendations from others. Bennett Griffin has the local residential and commercial communities at the core of its values and has built its reputation on strong relationships with the people and businesses of the town. I’m looking forward to carrying on many existing relationships from a more local perspective as well as building new ones within the community.”
