A SOLIHULL law firm has ap­pointed two new man­ag­ing part­ners.

The Wilkes Part­ner­ship, which also has an of­fice in Birm­ing­ham, has pro­moted Gareth O’Hara and El­lie Hol­land as joint man­ag­ing part­ners to lead the prac­tice.

Mr O’Hara has been at the firm since 1993 and has led the cor­po­rate team for many years, act­ing on high- pro­file cases such as multi- mil­lion pound man­age­ment buy­outs.

He sits on the firm’s man­age­ment board and over­sees a num­ber of client and sup­plier re­la­tion­ships.

Ms Hol­land has been with the firm since its merger with Wil­liamson & So­den in 2013 and has more than a decade of ex­pe­ri­ence head­ing up ma­jor clients.

Se­nior part­ner Nigel Wood said: “Both Gareth and El­lie have shown ex­cep­tional lead­er­ship and le­gal prac­tice dur­ing the time they have been with us.

“They also have a pas­sion for the work and I know they are ex­cited by the op­por­tu­nity of work­ing more closely with all the teams and the board to fur­ther grow and broaden the reach of our firm.

“There is some im­pres­sive le­gal ta­lent in Birm­ing­ham and this is more proof that there are many op­por­tu­ni­ties here for that ta­lent to thrive.”

These lat­est pro­mo­tions fol­low Amanda Holden and Gavin Evans to part­ner as well as the ap­point­ments of Stu­art Tym as head of planning, Zara Reed as HR and com­pli­ance di­rec­tor and Kevin Lynch as head of con­tentious pro­bate.
