New hire at Wilkin Chapman solicitors

Wilkin Chapman solicitors has welcomed Limara Rickell to their Corporate and Commercial team at their Lincoln office.

After completing her law degree at King’s College, London and further training in Bristol, Limara joined Wilkin Chapman’s Lincoln office, at Brayford Wharf East, as a trainee in 2015.

Settling in the Corporate and Commercial team, she qualified before joining a large international law firm in Birmingham where she spent two successful years until the opportunity arose to return to her hometown Lincoln.

Having gained a wealth of experience in the West Midlands, she is now once more working within the Corporate and Commercial team led by Russell Eke.

Limara said: “Even in the two years I have been away, the amount of development that you see in the city centre especially, is amazing.

“The university continues to grow with the expansion of its Science and Innovation Park being an ideal example of the opportunities that exist here now.

“It’s a great time to be returning – to be a part of this expansion and offering support for businesses to succeed.”

With previous academic success in two sciences, her interest lies in the burgeoning green and renewables sector, as well as technology developments in the agricultural sector.

With a growing number of landowners in rural Lincolnshire looking at the renewables and technology opportunities, Limara emphasised how Wilkin Chapman’s commercial team was increasingly involved in supporting clients moving into areas such as anaerobic digestion and solar projects, energy crops, and the development of Agri-Tech.

Limara continued: “The number of business start-ups we are dealing with is extremely encouraging, as is the number of clients we work closely with in the renewables and technology sector.

“Their success is our success and the relationships we enjoy with our clients was a major factor in my decision to return to Wilkin Chapman.

“It is an exciting time to be back to play an integral role in both the future of the team here and in Lincolnshire’s growth and economy.”
