New commercial partner for Lodders

Lodders has appointed commercial lawyer Stuart Price as partner in its Corporate and Commercial team.

Lodders has appointed commercial lawyer Stuart Price as partner in its Corporate and Commercial team after a record breaking 12-months.

Stuart (pictured right) will work alongside corporate partners Graham Spalding and Brad Quin – who joined Lodders from KPMG in November last year – with responsibility to drive growth and develop the team’s intellectual property, commercial and technology contracts, and data protection work.

“It’s been a very busy and rewarding 12 months for the corporate and commercial team, with substantial growth and numerous notable high-value, high quality deals for principally privately owned regional and national businesses,” Graham Spalding says.

“Stuart’s arrival is testament to our ambition, especially in the area of commercial contracts, IP, technology and data protection work, and he will have plenty of support from the corporate and commercial team as well as from across the firm, to develop this offering.

“Stuart has a great name and reputation in the market, and represents another significant, experienced hire for the team, following on from the recent arrival of partner Brad Quin, and solicitors Lydia Elvin and Nicola Vernon.”

Stuart joins Lodders from Thursfields Solicitors, where he was instrumental in developing the firm’s commercial and corporate services offering, and launching its Birmingham office in 2017.

Commenting on the move to Lodders, Stuart says: “This is a great opportunity to play a part in the continued growth and development of Lodders’ corporate and commercial law offering, and I am relishing the challenge and prospects of working at such an ambitious firm.

“The role will make full use of my expertise in commercial contracts, intellectual property, technology and data protection, along with my interest in media, music and film contracts. Law has many facets, so having a good knowledge of other areas of law that impact on business I feel helps to see the wider picture to the benefit of clients and colleagues alike.”

Stuart qualified as a solicitor in 1995, holds a certificate in Intellectual Property from Central Law Training, the certificate in GDPR Skills from University of Derby, and also advises on digital commerce, online marketplaces, R&D, brand protection and the commercialisation of intellectual property.

He has previously been the Chair of local business group, the Dudley and District Business Club, secretary for the Birmingham Music Network, and legal adviser to the blockbuster film ‘Crucible of the Vampire’ that was released in 2019.
