Bruton Knowles announces new managing partner

James Bailey has been elected managing partner of Gloucester-based Bruton Knowles for a term of three years.

He succeeds Patrick Downes who has retired after 14 years as managing partner of the national property consultancy.

Mr Bailey joined Bruton Knowles in 1998 and has had a varied professional general practice career in the utility, public and commercial sectors.

He has been responsible for the Nottingham office since 2006 and under his leadership the Nottingham team has grown in size and standing in the market.

Mr Bailey was also instrumental in opening the Manchester office in 2010. Taking over the helm at Bruton Knowles he says he will look to build on the successes of the firm, which - in addition to strong financial growth - has included the opening of several new offices, most recently Worcester.

"As we enter a new phase in our long history as a Limited Liability Partnership, we are in an excellent position for the firm's next stage of growth in a market which, although challenging, is full of opportunity," he said.

"My focus going forward is to further build on our values of integrity and professionalism by continuing to provide quality advice to our clients and creating a vibrant environment for our people ensuring we have the strongest possible team in place.

"We enjoy a great strength and depth of talent across all the disciplines and will continue to build on our growing reputation."
