Emma Barclay has been promoted to partner within the corporate team at BTO Solicitors LLP.
Ms Barclay, who joined BTO as a trainee solicitor in 2012, has focused on corporate law throughout her career. A valued team member, she has progressed through the ranks in less than a decade and will play a key role in further developing BTO’s corporate, banking and renewable energy practices.
