Royds Withy King has announced its annual promotions with four of its solicitors being promoted to partner across its Bath and Swindon offices.

The promotions include three lawyers who began their careers as trainees at the firm.

James Worrall, Mark Hambleton and Greg Callard, who were all ranked as “Associates to watch” in the latest edition of Chambers and Partners UK guide to the legal profession, have been promoted to partner.

Samantha O’Sullivan, a private client lawyer who heads the firm’s Charities & Not-for-profit sector group, has also been made up to partner.

James Worrall, who is described by clients as “commercially minded with good client rapport”, works in the firm’s Corporate team in Bath and specialises in mergers and acquisitions, corporate structures, group reorganisations and exit strategies. He acts for entrepreneurs, corporates and business owners and has a particular focus on the financial services and technology sectors.

Mark Hambleton, who also works in the Bath office of Royds Withy King, is described in Chambers and Partners as a “rising star”. He specialises in complex personal injury and insurance claims. His particular specialisms are cases involving cyclists, motorcyclists, individuals who do not have the capacity to litigate, and cases involving the Animals Act. Mark is the South West regional co-ordinator for the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

Greg Callard in the firm’s Swindon office advises SMEs and owner-managed businesses, commercial landlords and tenants on commercial property issues. Greg’s work ranges from acting for retail businesses acquiring space in shopping centres across the UK to advising expanding local businesses on their property needs. As part of the firm’s Charities & Not-for-profit sector team, Greg also advises charities on dealing with the legal aspects of managing property portfolios, including property transactions regulations, charity to charity property transfers, freehold disposal and acquisition and leasehold work.

Samantha joined Royds Withy King in 2013. She advises individuals on a wide range of issues, including pre- and post death estate and tax planning for individuals and families, use of trusts and tax-efficient Wills, inheritance tax and capital gains tax. Samantha also advises local and national charities on all aspects on setting up and running a charity including restructuring, creation and winding up of trusts, advice to trustees and beneficiaries and dealings with the Charity Commission.

Graham Street, managing partner of Royds Withy King, said: “We are delighted to announce these new partner promotions which recognise the hard work and commitment shown by James, Mark, Greg and Samantha over the years. They continually go over and above to deliver a consistently high level of service to their clients and we are particularly proud that three of our new partners started out as trainees and have grown their careers at the firm.”

Royds Withy King, which has over 500 partners and staff across its offices along the M4 corridor and in London, has also promoted eight solicitors to associate and senior associate in its Bath and Swindon offices.
