Shakespeare Martineau hires new partner for Leicester corporate team

Shakespeare Martineau has hired corporate lawyer Lisa Botterill, who will join the firm’s Leicester office as a partner.

Lisa was formerly a partner at Nelsons and has over 15 years of experience in the sector. She has expertise in all matters of corporate law, from the healthcare sector, working with care homes and residential homes, joint ventures bringing together funders and developers on property developments across the country, and acquisitions and reorgansiations, and has built up strong client relationships in the area.

Lisa joins the firm as they continue to grow the corporate team across the East Midlands. She will be utilising her vast local and community knowledge, as well as her wide range of sector experience, to give legal advice and handle transactions of all varieties.

Roy Botterill, partner and head of the Leicester office, said: “Here in Leicester we have seen our office continue to grow over recent years. Lisa’s appointment further consolidates our commitment to provide clients with top quality consultancy from the very best legal minds that the East Midlands has to offer.

“With a wealth of experience, a strong local reputation and a cracking surname to boot, Lisa more than fits the bill for us. Having worked with Lisa for many years previously, I am assured in the knowledge that she will continue our efforts to provide our clients with outstanding legal solutions and commercial guidance.”

Lisa Botterill said of her appointment: “Shakespeare Martineau is a highly respected presence throughout the East Midlands legal scene and I am thrilled to be joining the firm at a time of such expansion and development. I look forward to working with the team to further strengthen their community ties and expand the firm’s client base throughout Leicester and the surrounding area.”

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
