Richard Robinson named department head

The Corporate team at Napthens solicitors has appointed Corporate partner Richard Robinson as its new head following the promotion of Keith Melling to its executive board.

Keith, formerly head of Corporate, will lead the firm’s Commercial division as part of Napthens’ new, recently-announced executive team, a role which will see him overseeing the strategy of the Corporate, Employment and Litigation departments.

Richard, who has particular experience in the financial services, leisure and healthcare sectors, joined Napthens in 2013 from Addleshaw Goddard in Manchester.

He will manage the Corporate team, continuing to handle a wide range of corporate work including company acquisitions and disposals, mergers and start-ups.

Richard said: “Keith has done a fantastic job growing the team and developing our corporate offering, I look forward to building on this strong foundation and working with him and the executive team to support the continued growth and development of the firm.

“The Napthens corporate team is well-established with a great track record and I look forward to working with the rest of the department and building on the success of recent years.”
