Goughs welcomes new talent to Corporate Team

By Nick Batten on 3 May, 2022

Nationally-accredited Wiltshire law firm Goughs Solicitors has welcomed a new Senior Associate, Jonathan Carter-Lewis, to its already thriving Corporate Team. 

Jonathan brings knowledge and expertise – having worked in Hong Kong and London, for CMS, Nabarro LLP and Transasia Lawyers – to ensure Goughs offers the most up-to-date and relevant advice to its clients. 

The appointment follows a very successful few years for the firm’s Corporate and Real Estate teams who have collectively opened the company’s seventh office, extended the Land and Development Team and been recognised by the prestigious legal directory, Legal 500. 

In his new role, Jonathan will be reporting directly to Gemma Sumsion, Partner & Head of Real Estate & Corporate for Goughs.

Jonathan said, “Becoming a Senior Associate at Goughs is my greatest professional achievement and moving my family to the South West from London has given me the perfect work-life balance. Goughs have a wide variety of clients who face different challenges. My priority is to become their trusted advisor and build on the firm’s impressive legacy.”

Gemma added, “We are really excited to welcome Jonathan to the team. Jonathan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the commercial sphere and he will add true value to the firm’s Corporate offering. We are seeing a real upsurge in the work that is coming into the team, 2021 saw our turnover double and it doesn’t look as if work is slowing down.

“All of this success comes as a result of our dedicated and passionate lawyers and our loyal client base. 2022 is the growth year for the Corporate Team in many ways and it is great to have Jonathan on board with us for the ride!”
