Outset welcome six new team members

Outset are delighted to welcome six new team members, providing support to clients on employment, property and business transactions.

Hollie Whyman joins our employment team from city firm, Fletcher Day. Hollie brings significant experience and pragmatism, having spent several years working as a Practice Manager at a charity before starting her legal career.

We welcome Natalie Brown, an experienced commercial property lawyer who joins us from Hempsons in London where she advised on a variety of property matters for NHS Trusts. Natalie isfrom New Zealand, where she gained in experience in her roles at both a top tier and a boutique property firm. Natalie will be working with clients on a range of property matters, including the commercial property aspects of transactions. 

As Outset continue to invest in and develop emerging talent, Theo Halpern, Neha Iqbal and Daniel Moat also join our business transactions team as paralegals. Theo, Neha and Daniel have previously worked with us in short term roles (or in Daniel’s case part time, whilst completing his studies). Neha, Theo and Daniel will support the team on ancillary parts of corporate transactions.

We’re also very happy to welcome back Molly Mackay to the team who first joined us for work experience in 2016 whilst at secondary school. Molly will assist the team with post-completion work whilst studying for her LPC, before joining us full time in September as a trainee solicitor.

In addition to the new recruits, Cameron Gaston-Penny who joined us in 2018 qualified as a solicitor earlier this month and will continue to work in our Business Transactions team as a corporate lawyer. Ayda Khanchi, who also joined in 2018, began her training contract at the start of the year having completing the legal practice course whilst working with us part-time.

Managing Director, Sean Gorman said "It’s fantastic to have two experienced lawyers joining our team, as well as so much exciting future talent. We provide a very different option to the traditional law firm both in culture and ethos, and our way of working reflects that. As a result, we are as focussed on attracting great experienced team members as on developing new talent so they can thrive in our team. We have a hands on approach to learning, and our new recruits are already fully immersed in client work, alongside the rest of the team”.
