Gowling WLG has created five new partners following the latest round of promotions at the law firm.

Gowling WLG chief executive David Fennell said: “They have each made a significant contribution to the business already, demonstrating an outstanding commitment to our clients, and to the growth of their practices and the wider firm.

“The feedback was consistently excellent on each and every one of them – great team players who have developed our business both within the UK and around the world.”

Matt Walker and Joe Morris are directors in Gowling WLG’s 300-strong real estate practice. Zoe Fatchen is a senior UK tax lawyer with 15 years’ experience in all aspects of UK and cross-border commercial taxation, while corporate director Ragi Singh combines a focus on M&A with wider roles in the firm’s India team and its market-leading automotive sector group.

The firm’s global IP practice will be strengthened further with the addition of John Coldham to the partnership team.
