Charles Middleton steps down

24 April 2012

After many successful years, our longest-serving partner Charles Middleton is stepping down as an equity partner at the end of May.

Charles joined Willans as a 22-year old, completed his training with us and became a partner in 1985 while working in litigation. In the late 1980s he moved to head up residential property, where he has built a department with a reputation second to none in the region.

Charles has played an important role in the development of the firm as a whole, helping to oversee our growth from a handful of staff in the mid-1980s to the leading firm we are today with a fine reputation in the region.

After a 30-year career in property law, Charles feels it is time for a change. Having recently re-married, he plans to take a break after withdrawing from the partnership and enjoy some foreign travel.

Charles leaves the running of the department in the safe hands of partner Bridget Redmond and the existing team – Steve Diamond, Suzanne O’Riordan, Simon Hodges and Frank Smith – who will continue to provide a superb service.

We are pleased to say that Charles will not be disappearing completely. After taking a career break, he hopes to return in a consultancy role to undertake special projects.

In the meantime, we wish him well in this new phase of his life.
