New era dawns at Buckles Solicitors
New era dawns at Buckles Solicitors


THRIVING law firm, Buckles Solicitors LLP, is preparing to enter a new era in 2018.

With bold plans comes planned change in the firm’s leadership: Colleen Gostick – Buckles’ managing partner for more than 16 years – hands the baton in April to Duncan Jackson.

Having grown the firm from a local practice in 2001 to a strong regional player picking up many awards and accreditations along the way, Colleen will move to the new role of Chairman to support Duncan in his new role as CEO.

The firm has ambitious growth plans, through acquisition and organic development; a path is being carved through the firm’s niche international offering and solution-oriented approach.

Duncan said: “Buckles has been completely transformed under Colleen’s leadership and a big part of my role will be to build on her success and develop opportunities to further grow the firm.

“Continuity and a managed transition is at the heart of the change. We also have exciting plans in place to build on the recent achievements of the firm and there are many significant projects in the pipeline.”

Buckles Solicitors, which has offices in Peterborough, London, Nottingham and Stamford with Cambridge opening next year, provides a comprehensive range of legal services to individuals and businesses.

The firm has established a strategic alliance with CastaldiPartners, based in Paris and Milan, providing an extensive team of multi lingual, dual qualified lawyers to assist international clients across multiple jurisdictions. It has also recently developed a referral network for other law firms, BUCKLESconnect, which now boasts more than 250 member firms.

Colleen, who will support Duncan in her new role as Chairman, said: “Duncan has my whole-hearted support and I am very much looking forward to seeing just how far we can take the firm under his leadership.”
