And Matt Kendall has joined Murrell Associates as a director and head of commercial property from a period as in-house legal counsel with international investor services company, Computershare, having previously worked for the international law firm, Osborne Clarke.

The firm’s new management structure is more akin to those of its corporate clients than a traditional law practice.

Murrell explained: “We’re a progressive and expanding firm and we aim to practise what we preach. There’s nothing like being in business, as well as practising the law, to make it clear that a deep understanding of clients and their needs is what enables us to provide them with the specialist and highly commercial services they demand.”
