Buckles Solicitors LLP has its head office in Peterborough but has spread beyond the region, most recently with a new office in London and through its association with CastaldiPartners, which has offices in Milan and Paris. As a result, the firm has a strong client base not only in East Anglia, but also nationally and internationally. Nigel Moore’s team was strengthened further with the recruitment of senior associate Nadine Duncan, who joined from DLA Piper to add key skills in commercial, IT, outsourcing and technology matters; and specialist corporate associate Robin Johnston, who joined from Bray & Bray in Leicester.

The firm’s highlights of 2016 included advising a US-based chemical producer on a multimillion-pound acquisition; acting for protel hotelsoftware on a high-value strategic investment in a UK-based business; and assisting an exporter in the agricultural sector with its exit from a joint venture.
