Freeths bolsters corporate team as service line growth soars

National law firm Freeths has appointed Ania Vernon as Corporate Partner in the East Midlands. Ania joins the firm from Shoosmiths.

As a well-regarded individual within the corporate finance community, Ania routinely leads the delivery of high quality indirect real estate M&A, both offshore and domestic. She has over ten years’ sector experience specialising in tech, retail and asset-manager M&A, and brings with her rich credentials for advising management teams on buy-outs, institution-sponsored deals and other transactional processes.

In her new role at Freeths, Ania will help strengthen the growing presence of the wider national corporate team within the East Midlands. 

Commenting on the appointment, Leon Arnold, said: “The addition of Ania to the team comes at an exciting time for Freeths, as the corporate team enjoys a consistent upwards growth trajectory. The wealth of experience that Ania will bring will only continue our strategy to bolster services for clients within the region as well as lend hand to multiple, ongoing projects across the UK.”

Ania Vernon added: “I’m beyond thrilled to have joined Freeths at such an exciting time. Having grown up in the East Midlands and called this buzzing region “home” for most of my life, I feel invested on a human level in its continued prosperity. So, when Freeths got in touch to tell me about their reignited strategic focus and serious expansion plans here, the opportunity was a no-brainer. Suffice to say we’re definitely going to be a team to watch!”

Ania’s appointment follows several significant corporate key hires in the East Midlands over the last two months including Partner Martin Smith and Director Hannah Tessyman.
