Kirill Bingham appointed head of office at Clarke Willmott In Taunton

Kirill Bingham has been appointed the new head of office at national law firm Clarke Willmott LLP in Taunton.

Kirill grew up in Exeter and joined Clarke Willmott in January 2016, becoming a partner later that year. As head of the firm’s corporate team in Taunton, he acts for clients throughout the UK and overseas, advising on company incorporations and reorganisations, shareholders’ agreements, acquisitions and disposals, MBO’s, EOT’s and fundraisings.

Being one of the founding offices of the firm, and second largest with more than 190 staff and 22 partners, Clarke Willmott’s Taunton office covers a diverse range of disciplines with lawyers advising clients across the South West and nationally. 

On taking over the head of office role, Kirill Bingham said: “I am proud to be appointed to this role at an exciting time for the office and the firm generally, with our Taunton office having undergone a transformative and sustainable refurbishment and a new CEO elect in place, Peter Swinburn, who will take over next Spring.

“As a team we will continue to strive to build on the core values, to continue to support the local community and to provide exceptional legal service. It is also important for us to be able to provide the very best working environment and career prospects. I look forward to working with my talented colleagues.” 

Clarke Willmott CEO Stephen Rosser said: “I would like to congratulate Kirill on his appointment. It is a crucial role within the firm and we look forward to Kirill and the team continuing to build on the foundations made.”

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