Loosemores Solicitors are delighted to announce that Mark Loosemore has joined the firm as Senior Partner.
Mark’s arrival re-establishes the Loosemore family connection with the Cardiff-based firm which was founded by his father John 49 years ago. Mark brings extensive legal and business experience and expertise. He qualified as a commercial solicitor in London with leading international firm Bird & Bird, and specialised in sport and media work. Mark went on to become Group Commercial Director of the Welsh Rugby Union for the opening of the Millennium Stadium and the hosting of Rugby World Cup. He was later the senior in-house lawyer for a number of years with leading digital sports content and media group Premium TV (now known as Perform Group). Mark also ran the legal training business Altior, which he then sold to Kaplan, one of the world’s major professional training providers. Mark has also been an active investor in other businesses.
Mark commented: “I am very pleased to be joining Loosemores, a firm with a long track record of success and a strong reputation for looking after both business and individual clients from across South Wales and further afield. It is also a firm with which I have an obvious emotional attachment. I am excited about the prospect of working with the current team of lawyers and support staff to develop the firm and I believe it has significant potential. We will continue to provide the existing range of company/commercial, property, wills and probate, and other legal services. I am also particularly keen for us to continue to develop our services in specialist areas, such as sport, where the firm already has an established client base.”
As part of the changes, existing Senior Partners Michael Culley and Linda Jones will take up consultancy roles and will continue their involvement with both clients and the management of the firm. Michael Culley added: “We are delighted that Mark has chosen this practice and look forward to working with him to take the business forward into the future. Mark is a proven professional who will add real value to the business.”
