Greenaway Scott marks ‘successful 2018’ with eight appointments

Leading business advisory firm Greenaway Scott has added eight new talents to the team, and made two senior promotions, as it celebrates a “hugely successful” start to 2018.

The new recruits take the firm’s headcount up to 36 from its standing start five years ago.

The firm, which specialises in offering tailored advice in the mergers and acquisitions market, focussing specifically on technology and life sciences, has welcomed new starters across its corporate finance, commercial contracts, employment and human resources, and commercial property teams.

Elle McCook and Catherine James, who have both trained with Greenaway Scott, have been promoted to the role of solicitor in the corporate finance and commercial and IP teams respectively.

The corporate finance team has also welcomed two new executives, with Aimee Dring and Olivia Lewis both joining the team from Eversheds Sutherland. Ms Dring and Ms Lewis will work across the mergers and acquisitions business at Greenaway Scott.

Joining the employment and human resource team is lawyer Selena Baker and executive Michael Bolous.

Ms Baker, who has 11 years’ experience as an advisor in employment law, joins the Cardiff office as an associate, while Mr Bolous, who previously worked at Eversheds Sutherland, will take on the role of executive in the employment and human resource team.

Executives  Georgia Evans and Kate Lewis, will take on roles as executives in the commercial property team.  Ms Evans joins the team at Greenaway Scott having spent three years working at Hugh James, and Ms Lewis joins following completion of her legal studies at Cardiff University.

There are also two new additions to the Swansea office with Will Rees joining as an executive following the completion of his legal studies at Swansea University, and Sam Sutton joining the administration team at the Bay campus site.  This team has seen significant growth since launching at the university-based office last year.

Director of Corporate at Greenaway Scott Nigel Greenaway said these additions would only “strengthen” the firm’s offering in 2018.

He said:

“We are delighted to welcome all eight new starters across both our offices in Wales, and we are sure they will be hugely beneficial for us going forwards. Also huge congratulations to Elle and Catherine, who we are delighted to see qualify with us and remain on board.

“Greenaway Scott has seen significant growth in some exciting areas over the past 12 months, and achieved record turnover and profit levels in 2017, so we look forward to exploring these new opportunities and welcoming more success for the firm this year.”

The group is unique in Wales as a multi-discipline corporate advisory business that advises upon all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, equity fund raising, company structures and commercialisation of technology – covering both legal aspects and the financial advisory element through subsidiary Verde Corporate Finance.
