Equity partner promotion for Lodders’ Louise Igoe


Lodders has promoted private client specialist Louise Igoe to equity partner.

A specialist in estate planning, wills and trusts, she is now one of three equity partners within Lodders’ top ranking private client team, alongside its head Martin Green, and Stephen Brignull.

Louise joined Lodders as a trainee, qualified into the private client team and went on to make history at the firm in 2011 when she became its youngest partner at the age of 30.

She is one of five promotions, including three new partners, announced by the firm this month, for members of its private client, agricultural, real estate and business teams.

Commenting on her new role of equity partner, Louise, a member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP), said: “Of course I am delighted to become an equity partner at Lodders, which is an excellent and fast-growing firm.

“Since I joined as a trainee I have worked on a huge variety of cases from complex estates, to wills and tax planning. Lodders works hard to support and nurture its talent and trainees and has provided me with the very best grounding for a solid legal career; I have been fortunate to work alongside exceptional mentors, in particular our private client team head, Martin Green, and partner and tax expert Stephen Brignull.

“Equally, Lodders is as committed to providing clients with the combination of exceptional legal skill alongside the best possible client service, and the firm as a whole, and in particular the private client team, have experienced sustained growth in instructions, especially over the last two years. Now is a great time to become an equity partner and I am very excited for what the future holds and being involved in further developing and running the firm.”

A ‘natural private client lawyer’

“Louise joined the firm as a trainee,” added Lodders’ senior partner Martin Green, “and quickly proved herself to be an exceptionally bright and capable individual, and a natural private client lawyer with a very good and sensitive manner with all clients.

“It is testament to her commitment, hard work and legal ability that her career has evolved so successfully at the firm, which is true of all five promotions announced this month.”

Lodders’ latest promotions coincide with the firm experiencing sustained growth, as Martin explains: “The firm is performing especially well and we have seen steady growth, particularly in recent years.

“As well as expanding our operations, notably with the opening of our Cheltenham office in October 2013, the strong reputation of our range of specialist legal services continues to grow and receive high rankings in both the Legal 500 and Chambers directories.”
