Solicitors grows commercial team with new appointment

BPE Solicitors, with its headquarters in Cheltenham, has appointed Emma Hickson as a Senior Associate as part of its Commercial team.

Joining BPE from Charles Russell Speechlys and having worked in commercial law for more than a decade, Emma brings a wealth of experience to the team. Emma trained and qualified at Eversheds LLP in London before spending eight years working for IT services company DXC Technology (formerly Computer Sciences Corporation) as an outsourcing lawyer. Emma also has first-hand experience of the growing fintech sector having been Chief Legal Officer for mobile payments company, Luup.

Emma advises on commercial contracts with a particular interest in technology and IT, often negotiating complex framework and subcontracting arrangements and advising on high value outsourcing bids in both the public and private sectors.

John Workman, Senior Partner at BPE, commented: "It's great to have Emma joining us. Her diverse experience, including negotiating and supporting the outsourced private-sector delivery of two of the largest UK government IT infrastructure contracts, is hugely valuable. We have no doubt Emma will be a great asset, helping to support BPE's long-term growth plan."

With more than 130 staff including 70 lawyers, BPE has its headquarters in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and offices in Stonehouse and London, as well as access points in Cirencester, Bristol and Oxford.
