Law firm Lodders has appointed two of its partners to lead its growing Cheltenham practice

Employment lawyer Nick Rowe and private client specialist Jessica Beddows take up the role from Lodders’ recently announced managing partner Paul Mourton, who has been partner in charge of and overseen the growth of the Cheltenham practice since it opened in 2013.

The pair describe the opportunity to jointly head the Cheltenham practice as ‘exciting’, particularly as Lodders celebrates the fifth anniversary of its Cheltenham operation this year.

Lodders’ Cheltenham office predominantly works with family and privately-owned businesses, high net worth individuals, property investors and developers across Gloucestershire, the North Cotswolds and the wider South West region, via its core specialist Business Services, Employment, Real Estate and Private Client teams.

Head of Lodders’ Employment Law team Nick Rowe originally joined Lodders’ Cheltenham practice in 2015 from neighbouring firm Maitland Walker LLP, having trained at Charles Russell Speechlys. He specialises in employment law and all the complexity that arises out of that relationship, acting for both employers from privately owned businesses to FTSE 100 companies, and employees and stakeholders.

Partner in the firm’s top-ranking Private Client team, Jessica Beddows is regarded as a leading advisor in the private client sector, with a particular specialism in advising elderly and vulnerable clients. Well-known in Cheltenham, Jessica joined Lodders in 2016 from local firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys, where she had been head of the firm’s probate team in Worcester and with the firm since 2012, having previously trained and practiced at The Wilkes Partnership in Birmingham from 2005.

Jessica said: “I am thrilled to be appointed as joint head of the Cheltenham office and I look forward to working alongside Nick to steer the firm in the next stage of its future. There are a lot of exciting opportunities in Cheltenham and the surrounding areas at the moment, with numerous positive changes, including new businesses and people moving into the area. With Lodders now very well established in Cheltenham and recognised for its quality client service and advice, I anticipate more growth for the practice here.”

Nick added: “Lodders is very committed to Gloucestershire and to investing in and growing the Cheltenham practice. Jessica and I are very excited about the next stage in the firm’s development in Cheltenham and the wider Gloucestershire area. We are determined to achieve our objective of increasing the firm’s profile in the local market and to establishing Lodders as the ‘go to’ private client and commercial firm in the area.”

“Nick and Jessica are not only excellent lawyers, but are well-known and respected in the Cheltenham market,” added Paul Mourton. “Combined with their ambition, enthusiasm and drive, as well as being proven leaders, they represent excellent joint heads and partners in charge of the Cheltenham office.”
