Law firm reveals new corporate partner

Ania Vernon

Law firm Freeths has appointed Ania Vernon as corporate partner in the East Midlands.

She joins the firm from Shoosmiths.

Vernon works on real estate M&A, both offshore and domestic. She has over ten years’ sector experience specialising in tech, retail and asset-manager M&A.

Freeths’ 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.”

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.”

Vernon’s appointment follows several corporate key hires in the East Midlands over the last two months including partner Martin Smith and director Hannah Tessyman.
