Wansbroughs Corporate and Commercial Team - Wansbroughs Solicitors (2)

Wansbroughs appoints new partner and head of corporate & commercial

Wansbroughs Solicitors has appointed William Ingram Hill as a partner and head of the new corporate and commercial team.

William brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role. He trained and spent his early career at magic circle law firm Allen & Overy before moving to Burges Salmon LLP in Bristol.

In 2009 he moved into industry and spent six years at AIM-listed company, Helius Energy plc, first as general counsel and then as chief operating officer and acting CEO.

He joins from a London firm where he has been a partner since 2017.

He has been a director of a number of private SMEs in the energy, media and technology sectors and is an accredited and practising mediator.

William has extensive experience advising on multi-jurisdictional mergers and acquisitions, corporate structuring and fundraising, complex commercial contracts and environmental, social and governance matters.

William’s newly-formed corporate and commercial team comprises Philip Wigg (partner), Emma Jewell (associate solicitor), Danil Galushko (paralegal), Sally Bevan (team co-ordinator) and Josie Welch (secretary).

The team will work between the firm’s head office in Devizes and its new office on Regent Street in London.

Commenting on his appointment, William said “I am extremely excited to be joining Wansbroughs and very much look forward to working with my excellent team to expand the firm’s corporate and commercial offering regionally, nationally and internationally.”

Commenting on his appointment, Oliver Price, managing partner and head of dispute resolution, said: “We are delighted about William joining us and he brings strength and depth to the services that we can offer.

“Rapid expansion, with an increase in our headcount of over 10 per cent this last quarter, has meant that we now have stand-alone teams offering corporate & commercial and dispute resolution advice.”
