Clough & Willis Bolsters Commercial & Corporate Team with New Appointment

Bury based Clough & Willis - one of the North West's leading mid-sized legal firms - has bolstered its commercial and corporate department following the appointment of Guy Lachlan who joins as an associate solicitor.

Guy advises businesses from sole traders to large multimillion pound turnover companies as well as national organisations in various key sectors such as healthcare, engineering, food, insurance, utilities and retail.

He offers the full range of commercial and corporate legal services to his clients, including; business acquisitions and disposals, management buy-ins/buy-outs and restructuring, shareholder agreements and disputes, directors' liability advice, as well as commercial law needs covering terms of business, agency, distributorships, licensing and franchising and also partnership agreements and disputes.

Guy has joined Clough & Willis from Thursfields Solicitors in Worcestershire; prior to that he worked in Leeds after starting his career in London. He graduated from Durham University and completed his studies at the College of Law.

Guy is a regular conference speaker on corporate and commercial law topics and also professional partnership issues in the healthcare sector. His appointment follows last month's announcement that Grahame Henry had joined the firm's litigation team.

Shefali Talukdar, managing partner of Clough & Willis, commented: "As a firm, we have always boasted a strong commercial and corporate department and Guy's arrival is a great addition. He has a reputation for having a solid commercial acumen which I know will be of real benefit to both our established and new clients.”

Guy added: "I am delighted to be joining Clough & Willis and am looking forward to driving the commercial and corporate department forward with an emphasis on meeting and exceeding what our clients expect of us.”
