Browne Jacobson strengthens its Banking practice with two Birmingham appointments

30 March 2023

UK & Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson has grown its Banking offering in the West Midlands with the appointments of Associate, Tyler Isaac and Solicitor Apprentice, Hollie Ingram into its Birmingham office.

Both appointments will support the wider growth ambitions of the firm’s established Banking & Finance practice which sits under Browne Jacobson’s Financial Services & Insurance sector and cuts across Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham.

Tyler, who joined the firm as a legal assistant in 2018, began his training contract with the firm in September 2021, taking up seats in the education, corporate and employment practices. 

Hollie joins the banking team, having also started at the firm in 2018 via the apprenticeship route into a legal career. Hollie is currently in her fourth legal team in the firm, building up a deep knowledge and experience of the firm and its sectors. 

Partner Emma Hinton who is joint head of the firm’s national banking practice as well as head of the Birmingham banking team commented: “Over the last 12 months, we have seen the market go through some real peaks and troughs, but it has been very encouraging to see positive signs that the economy is stabilising, and the deal market is really picking up. As a result, our team have a very healthy number of deals in the pipeline, so I am pleased to welcome Tyler and Hollie into our growing Birmingham practice who will support on the successful delivery of these key transactions to our diverse banking & finance client base.

“Although both are still in the early years of their legal careers, they have already had almost five years’ worth of exposure to a wide range of Browne Jacobson matters that cut across various areas across the public and private sector, and they have spades of the commercial expertise that we are known for. They are also both very ambitious and committed to making a positive difference through their work, adopting the O Shaped qualities and mindset when it comes to their work and our clients.”

Tyler added: “I am really proud to be joining the Browne Jacobson Banking & Finance team, having recently qualified as an Associate at the firm. The team have a reputation for having great market knowledge, giving pragmatic advice and for having an excellent makeup of clients, so I am excited to become part of that and continue my career with a law firm that has given me a fantastic future lawyer pathway, nurtured my skill set and given me real career progression.”

Hollie said: “The Browne Jacobson Banking & Finance team is made up of highly experienced, specialist lawyers, who are working on some really interesting and significant transactions, so I am looking forward to learning more from them and to developing in the next stage of my legal career. Being a Solicitor Apprentice has awarded me with so many amazing opportunities and I am proud to be working at a firm that is passionate about leading diverse routes into law.”

In May 2022, Browne Jacobson announced it was the first official law firm partner to O Shaped, an innovative movement with a mission to drive positive change within the legal sector. The main principals of O Shaped are incorporated into all of the firm’s L&D programmes and talent pathways.
