Battens law firm in change of ownership

Leading South West law firm Battens Solicitors has today announced a change of ownership. After many years as majority shareholders, Chairman David Stephens and Commercial Property director Ray Edwards, will step down with five of Battens’ senior solicitors becoming the new owners and directors.

The five new owners include Ceri Stephens, who will take the reins as Managing Director, and Peter Livingstone, who will become Chairman. They will be joined in the running of the firm by equal shareholders Katherine Gilmour, Head of Company & Commercial, Louise Gidley, Head of Family, and Naomi Dyer, Head of Private Client. 

Battens has chosen to make this announcement on International Women’s Day (IWD) to celebrate the fact that four of the five new owners of the firm are women. This year’s IWD ‘Choose to Challenge’ theme fits the firm’s commitment to equal opportunities for all and reflects its new structure as a majority female-owned and led law firm.
