Leading Kent law firm, Whitehead Monckton is delighted to announce that Dan Cowley has joined its management team as an Associate Director.   Dan, based at the Canterbury office, specialises in all aspects of commercial property work.  Dan’s addition to Whitehead Monckton’s management team takes the number of Directors at the firm to 14.

The firm has also recently filled its newly created role of Chief Operating Officer.  Simon Longhurst joined the firm in March as a member of the executive board.  His primary role is to ensure the firm works as efficiently and effectively as possible and continues to build on its reputation for excellence.

Louise Purcell has joined the Employment team as a senior solicitor.  A particular focus of Louise’s is Employment Tribunal advocacy.  As an in- house advocate at Capsticks, she represented a number of NHS Trusts, at Employment Tribunal hearings across London and the South East.  She finds that her direct experience of Employment Tribunals is a valuable experience, on which to draw when advising clients about employment issues.

We have also taken on our first apprenticeship scheme with KTA (Kent Training & Apprenticeships) and employed a Marketing Assistant to join our Central Services Department.  Under the direction of the Marketing Executive, they will provide day to day support to the business development and marketing function within the firm.   KTA have been supporting people to gain qualifications and develop skills for over 30 years. Working with large and small organisations across Kent, they offer high quality accredited and bespoke training.  https://www.kenttrainingandapprenticeships.co.uk/

Finally, March saw the launch of our new website, which is a more modern design which was warranted for the website and in particular one that works well on mobiles and tablets.  We were delighted to use Reflect Digital in this development.  Reflect Digital already assist us with our SEO activity and have completed other website developments for us. 

Becky Campbell who heads up Reflect Digital won the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award at the KEiBAs last year and has just been named in the KM Business Top 30 Under 30!, coincidentally sponsored by Whitehead Monckton this year. We weren’t involved in the judging though.
