Tracey Dickens - Birkett Long LLP

Within: Corporate and commercial: Essex

Birkett Long LLP's 'awareness of client requirements, coupled with technical knowledge and its ability to bring transactions to completion, proves invaluable'. The corporate practice handles domestic and international business transactions, shareholder and joint venture agreements, corporate restructurings and commercial contracts. The healthcare, technology and media sectors are historically strong, while consultant solicitor Alan Massenhove, who joined from a London firm in October 2017, brings in more expertise in franchise businesses and the regulated sectors, including banking. Praxis42, Valeo, Wilkin & Sons, Systematic Logistics International and E2V Technologies form the client roster. Team lead Tracey Dickens is an 'excellent communicator and technical adviser, while remaining commercially pragmatic'. Other key members include David Wisbey and Basildon-based solicitors Stephen Avila and  Tim Field.
