St Ann’s Hospice has appointed commercial law firm Brabners to provide business advice and support to its Greater Manchester-based team.

Following a competitive tender process, the North West law firm was chosen to support the charity with a range of specialist advice, including charity and employment law, property, wills and probate, and commercial contracts.

Manchester United star Michael Carrick’s charitable foundation has named commercial law firm Brabners as its sole legal adviser.

Michael Carrick Foundation has been created as part of the midfielder’s testimonial, which celebrates his 11 years as a player at the club. It includes a match between Manchester United’s 2008 Champions League winning XI and an All-Stars team at Old Trafford on Sunday 4th June.

Commercial law firm Brabners has appointed leading sport and entertainment lawyer Simon Taylor as a partner.

Brabners is proud to announce its partnership with Launch, a new tech co-working space at The Landing in MediaCityUK. Launch is a new space which has opened within The Landing and is aimed at supporting start-up and scale-up businesses in the North West, with a particular focus on VR, AR and IoT businesses.

As a professional mentor at Launch, Brabners will be running workshops, masterclasses and having one-on-one chats with the tenants with a view to guiding them through their growth from small, ambitious companies into large, successful businesses.

Commercial law firm Brabners has strengthened its commercial, intellectual property and sports practices with three new hires.

Victoria Trigwell joins the firm’s commercial and intellectual property team as an associate, alongside intellectual property and trademark administrator Ioana Ghiurco. Andrew McGregor has been hired as an associate in the sports practice.

Brabners is set to sponsor this year’s Property Professional of the Year category at the Made in Manchester Awards 2017.

Commercial law firm Brabners acted for The National Football Museum (NFM) in their recent deal with GG Hospitality, which is co-owned by the Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, to take over the dining, hospitality and event management at the museum from 1 October 2016. 

Commercial law firm Brabners has expanded its healthcare practice with the appointment of senior associate, Nicola Lomas, to capitalise on the high levels of commercial activity in the dental market.

Nicola, who has more than 10 years’ experience advising a national client base, from sole practitioners to large multi-site corporates, has been recruited from Goodman Grant, where she held the role of director.

Commercial law firm Brabners has advised an innovative Liverpool business which has developed digital advertising boards for the city’s black taxis on a £80k investment by Merseyside Special Investment Fund (MSIF).

Open Messenger has been developed by local entrepreneur Mike Smith who is based at the Baltic Triangle. 

The digital messenger boards allow advertisers to tailor their promotional messages on Hackney taxis to real-time conditions, such as local weather, location and time.
