A regional law firm is targeting business growth in west Dorset with the appointment of a highly experienced lawyer.
Ellis Jones Solicitors has welcomed Senior Associate Tim Glover to its Swanage office to help meet rising demand for its services in the county.
Dispute Resolution specialist Tim, who has nearly 30 years of experience, previously held senior positions at law firms in the Weymouth and Dorchester area.
Ellis Jones, with 18 Partners and more than 160 staff, has offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs (Poole), Ringwood, Swanage and Wimborne as well as London.
Nigel Smith, Managing Partner, said: “Tim’s excellent reputation precedes him.
“He is well-known as a dispute resolution specialist across the region and particularly in Dorset. His great depth of experience and considerable skills will be a tremendous asset as our business expands.”
Nigel added: “I was born in Dorchester and still have strong links with the town. I’m excited about the prospect of reaching west from our Swanage office into Dorchester and Weymouth.”
Tim, who qualified as a lawyer in 1992, is an Accredited Mediator with the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology at Regents College in London.
He said: “The process of dispute resolution may have changed over the years with fewer days in court but the principles remain the same.
“I’m looking forward to helping more clients benefit from Ellis Jones’ excellent services as the firm looks westwards, especially through my longstanding connections with Weymouth, Dorchester and west Dorset.”
Tim, a father of four, is a former rugby player and youth coach in Weymouth. He enjoys sailing and boxing training.
He joins the Swanage office hot on the heels of Partner Chris Pemberton, who lives in Dorchester. His appointment also follows a record eight promotions at Ellis Jones.
