Three new partners in string of Moore Barlow promotions

South East-based law firm Moore Barlow has today announced 14 promotions including three new partners. 

Kirsty Bowyer, who began her legal career with the firm as a trainee solicitor more than 10 years ago, has been promoted to partner in the corporate team. Kirsty specialises in advising entrepreneurial businesses with mergers and acquisitions (M&A), corporate finance and reorganisations, fundraising, flotations and takeovers. Her promotion sees her become the firm’s first female corporate partner.

Louise Campbell who joined Moore Barlow almost three years ago has been promoted to partner within the commercial property team. She qualified in 2007 and undertakes transactional property work for developers, lenders and owner/occupiers along with all forms of landlord and tenant work for both landlord and tenant. 

The firm has also announced the promotion of William Warnock to partner in the commercial property team. William, who joined Moore Barlow in 2019, has a wealth of experience working with renowned developers and business owners dealing with complex land development and commercial property transactions.

The three promotions take the overall number of partners at the firm to 70, 54% of which are women.

A further 11 lawyers across the firm have been promoted to associate and senior associate.

“The post-pandemic landscape is littered with challenges that makes access to high-quality legal advice as important as it has ever been for both businesses and individuals. Our promotions this year demonstrate the strength in depth within our firm across our areas of expertise and the calibre of legal representation we offer to our clients.  

“Investing in our people is absolutely fundamental to our business model. We’re committed to providing our team members with the opportunities they need to progress in their careers, alongside a friendly, nurturing working environment where they feel empowered to provide first-class legal support.”
