Commercial law firm Berry Smith has appointed Emma Borrington as its latest partner.

The 34-year-old from Cardiff joined Berry Smith in 2002 and is an experienced corporate lawyer who advises on the legal and commercial aspects of all forms of transactions for public and private companies.

The newly appointed partner works with the firm’s large number of owner managed businesses throughout the UK and has built up experience of acting for companies operating in the financial services and manufacturing sectors.

She said: “I am delighted to become a partner at such an exciting time for the practice.

“We are experiencing growth in all of our teams driven by the increased activities of our core client base and our ongoing success in winning new clients.”

The latest appointment coincides with a period of rapid growth at Berry Smith, particularly in its corporate department which is experiencing its highest level of transaction activity for a decade.

Berry Smith has appointed two additional corporate solicitors within the last 12 months with more appointments planned.

Andrew Bound, Head of Transaction and Business Services at Berry Smith, said: “We are delighted to welcome Emma to the partnership.

“She has played an integral role in our business and the services that we provide.

“The last 12 months have been incredibly busy for the corporate team indicating not only a significant uplift in deal activity but also Berry Smith’s ability to increase its market share.
