Commercial litigation specialist Andrew Wylde joins Lodders as a senior associate in the firm’s 13-strong Dispute Resolution team, and trusts and estate planning specialist John Padget joins as an associate in the Private Client department.
Previously, Andrew has led the commercial litigation team of East Midlands firm Ringrose Law Solicitors for five years, and was a partner at Irwin Mitchell.
He joins Lodders’ Dispute Resolution team, that is headed by partner Jane Senior, to advise clients on all aspects of dispute resolution, including corporate and shareholder disputes, contract breaches, together with providing insolvency advice.
As associate in Lodders’ top-ranking private client department, which is led by Louise Igoe and one of the Midlands’ largest dedicated private client practices, John Padget will utilise several years of experience working solely in private client law, including providing advice on trusts and estates administration, estate planning, wills, lasting powers of attorney, inheritance tax, and capital gains tax.
An affiliate of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), John joins Lodders from Birmingham’s Meridian Private Client LLP where he was an associate working principally on estate planning for high net worth individuals. He qualified as a wills and probate solicitor in 2014 at Solihull firm Wallace Robinson & Morgan LLP and has since worked exclusively in private client law.
Commenting on the firm’s latest new hires, Lodders’ managing partner Paul Mourton says: “The firm has seen sustained growth in instructions for both our private client and dispute resolution advice. Maintaining our pledge to recruit only the best in breed legal specialists and our commitment to providing the very best legal skill and client service, Andrew and John’s appointments represent significant additions to our expanding team.”
