Liverpool and London-based law firm, O’Connors, has appointed corporate lawyer Christina Millan to its corporate team as it continues to build for the future. Christina joins from the Liverpool office of DWF LLP where she handled a wide variety of corporate and commercial transactions and corporate governance work.
O’Connors has gained a national and international reputation for delivering corporate, commercial, insurance and regulatory advice and sector expertise to help clients evaluate and manage risks and opportunities, wherever in the world they are doing business. Christina’s appointment expands the firm’s capacity to handle the growing number of corporate transactions now being generated from within the firm’s entrepreneurial client base.
Christina said: “I am very passionate about the North West having lived, trained and worked here and I see a growing demand from the region’s successful businesses to buy specialist professional services locally, where such services are available. I believe the O’Connors legal project management model, which enables experienced transaction lawyers to stay hands-on at all times and deliver better support, cost control and results for clients, is exactly what the market is looking to buy and I am hugely excited to be part of this innovation.”
Commenting on Christina’s appointment, head of corporate John Spofforth said: “Christina brings many things to the firm, in particular her corporate transaction experience and project management skills which fit perfectly with our business model. Christina will also be able to support our growing commercial team and bring the knowledge she gained during her time in DWF’s internal group legal team to our legal sector specialism. Our team now comprises eleven lawyers and a five-strong experienced support group. As the economy continues to defy the global uncertainties and transactional activity continues to increase, I could see us making further appointments during this year.”
