News: New commercial appointment at Oxley & Coward


Abigail Watson has joined Oxley & Coward as the Rotherham solicitors' new company commercial solicitor, taking over from Rebecca Stopford in April.

An already impressive career has seen Abigail work at City firm DLA Piper for several years, where she specialised in non contentious company and commercial law matters prior to joining Oxley & Coward and has considerable experience of working on business asset and share sale and purchases and other business transactions common to the practice of commercial law.

"It's an exciting time to be joining Oxley and Coward and I am really looking forward to the challenge," said Abby (pictured) when commenting on her appointment. "The firm obviously has a very long history, but there is a very forward looking attitude here too which businesses can relate to and I'm looking forward to meeting the local business community and playing my part in continuing to deliver the high standards of service they have come to expect from us."

Peter Hedley, practice manager at Oxley & Coward, said: "We are delighted to be able to welcome Abigail to the team. The role of company commercial solicitor is a key one for the practice and Abby's City experience is going to be a big advantage for us and our clients."

Abigail will be able to advise Oxley & Coward clients on a wide variety of commercial law matters, including business acquisitions, company formations, reorganisations and restructuring, together with joint ventures, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements and commercial contracts where Abigail's experience will prove invaluable.

"Oxley & Coward always recruit the very best people the profession has to offer and securing the talents of a solicitor of Abby's calibre is always pleasing," added Peter. "The clients we currently serve have come to rely on our professional and experienced service and Abigail's appointment demonstrates in a way no one can miss that our ambitions for the practice and our clients remain as high as ever."

Abigail will get the chance to meet with members of the local business community as Oxley & Coward host its next Business Breakfast networking event on May 16.
