Exciting changes for leading, local law firm

Local, trusted and dedicated law firm, Thomson & Bancks, has seen a summer
of change. Sylvia Gillham, who now heads up both the Residential and Business
departments across all four offices, explains.


The retirement of Partner and Chairman David Greer, who had been with the firm since 1982 and a Partner and Head of the Business Services department since 1985, marked the end of an era but was bittersweet for the firm as it ushered in exciting changes for the department.


The Business Services team has been strengthened by the appointment of Solicitors James Leyland and Rebecca Tiffin who have a wealth of knowledge and experience between them. Both James and Rebecca have fitted into the firm well and are delighted to have joined such a forward thinking and close knit commercial property team.


Business Services Solicitor John Stagg, has been appointed as a Partner of Thomson & Bancks along with Emma Cottell of the Residential Property department. Since joining the firm in 2015, Emma has been an integral part of the team and it was a natural progression for her to become a Partner. John specialises in commercial property and business sales and dedicates himself to providing the best service possible to his clients. We all work closely to provide easy to understand legal and practical advice on a wide range of business and property related matters.


It was with great pleasure that we were able to announce these changes which form part of the ongoing process of evolution within the firm. Although it came with a tinge of sadness seeing our fellow Partner and friend David retire, we are excited for the future of Thomson & Bancks.


Dating back to 1830, Thomson & Bancks are proud of their history but recognise the challenges of the ever changing legal sector of today. With the ongoing developments at the firm, it will continue to deliver the same great client care with new innovations.


As a client of Thomson & Bancks you can be sure that “You matter to us”.
