Our healthcare specialist lawyer, Oliver Pool, has been promoted to Partner. Oliver's appointment comes hot on the heels of recent growth in the Healthcare team including the appointment of Paul Werrell and the joining of leading healthcare practice Lockharts in January this year.
Having trained in London, Oliver joined VWV in 2005. He acts mainly for GP partnerships on a wide range of commercial matters including partnership deeds, disputes and contracts. Independent legal directory Chambers & Partners describes him as "knowledgeable and resourceful".
Simon Heald, VWV Managing Partner, commented:
"Oliver has been a key member of the Healthcare team for many years and has been pivotal in achieving the reputation and growth we have. The Healthcare team continues to go from strength to strength and this has been recognised by leading independent research directory Chambers & Partners. The directory has ranked the Healthcare team in Band 1 - the highest ranking and five out of seven named lawyers are from VWV, including Oliver."
