The firm is delighted that Erol Huseyin has joined the corporate and commercial team at Brachers, having been a partner at Norton Rose Fulbright in the City for the past ten years.
Erol has a distinguished track record, having also worked at Magic Circle firm Allen & Overy for five years before joining Norton Rose in 1998 and becoming partner in 2006. He has some 20 years’ experience advising businesses and lenders on all aspects of commercial transactions, with a particular specialism in energy. His expertise includes advising on joint venture arrangements, business and share sales, product supply and sales & distribution arrangements, IP licensing, and loan and other finance structures.
Ranked in Chambers Global, which recognises lawyers as leaders in their respective practice areas, Erol has extensive experience of running and supervising teams of lawyers on projects and providing focused, risk-based advice to clients.
Living just outside Tonbridge in Kent with his wife and two children, Erol decided that the time was right to leave the City and start a new phase in his career working at a locally-based firm with a significant footprint in the business community.
Erol was also attracted to Brachers by the firm’s ethos of supporting clients of all kinds throughout the business cycle as they grow, from family-owned businesses and SMEs to mid-market and larger corporates and publicly funded organisations.
Commenting on joining Brachers, Erol said:
“I am thrilled to be joining Brachers and am excited about the new chapter publishing up in front of me. Brachers deservedly has a high reputation for its wide-ranging work with businesses across the spectrum in Kent and indeed the South East more widely. There is a strong team of experienced lawyers at the firm and I am really looking forward to working with them to bring clients the advice and guidance they need.”
James Bullock, Head of Corporate at Brachers, said:
“We are very pleased that Erol is coming on board. His experience speaks for itself and I have no doubt that clients will greatly value working with him due to the knowledge, insight and support he can bring them. His appointment comes as we continue to invest in the strength and depth of our business and commercial teams – as the trend continues of businesses seeking specialist advice locally rather than gravitating to London.
Our work is about providing the legal support to help businesses face their future with confidence, whether it’s advice on deals, contractual risks, contingency planning, or strategic projects. Whatever it is, we’re here to help businesses in Kent and beyond reach their full potential.”
