Edwin Coe bulks up with triple partner hire

Lincoln’s Inn-based Edwin Coe has taken on three non-equity partners to bring its other practice areas up to the strength of its traditional areas of insolvency and litigation.

Former Davies Arnold Cooper partner Carolyn West and former Reed Smith associate Thom Wilkinson have both joined Edwin Coe’s property department as partners.

Simeon Gilchrist has been hired to further strengthen the insolvency practice Edwin Coe from Druces and Attlee.

Further to the above appointments, Edwin Coe’s senior partner and senior litigation and dispute resolution and contentious insolvency partner Christopher Berry said that, unlike the rest of the market, the firm was going to expand on the private client side and “looking at fairly senior level appointments there”.

Berry says the first quarter results are on track for meeting the turnover target of £13m for the year – up £1m on last year.
