Clarke Willmott renews Business Partnership with Somerset Chamber

Leading Taunton law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has renewed its business partnership with the Somerset Chamber of Commerce following a successful first year.

The firm is one of the Chamber of Commerce’s longest standing members and became a business partner in 2019.

The business partnership brings members to the heart of the business community, together with unrivalled opportunities to engage with business and influence policy at local, regional and national level.

Chamber business partners are a leading example of their industry sector and are positioned as the authoritative voice within their areas of operation.

Chris Thorne (pictured), Partner and Head of the Taunton office, said: “We are delighted to continue our fantastic working relationship with the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, promoting business interests across our region and beyond.

“Providing an overarching voice for the business community throughout the county is increasingly important, particularly in these uncertain times. As the leading law firm in the county it is fitting that we should support an organisation which helps advise, support and promote not only our business clients but many other businesses throughout Somerset.”

Alistair Tudor, Commercial Operations Manager for Somerset Chamber, added: “Somerset Chamber of Commerce is delighted to continue the longstanding relationship with Clarke Willmott.  As Business Partners, the Clarke Willmott team has supported our members and the wider business community through what has been a very challenging business environment and I’m looking forward to working closely with Chris and the team over the year ahead.”

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
