Lisa Botterill and Louise Ingram announced as joint heads of Shakespeare Martineau in Leicester


Shakespeare Martineau law firm has promoted two people to head up its Leicester office.

Corporate partner Lisa Botterill and residential development partner Louise Ingram will share the role of office head, taking over after a decade of leadership from Roy Botterill. He remains with the firm as corporate partner.

Meanwhile, corporate expert Roger Harcourt will continue his position as head of the Nottingham hub for a further three years. The East Midlands offices employ more than 250 people.

Lisa Botterill joined the Shakespeare Martineau Leicester office in 2017, having been a partner at Nelsons, in New Walk, Leicester from 2014.

Prior to that she worked with Harvey Ingram, also in New Walk, then helped open Shakespeare's original satellite office there, before its merger with Harvey Ingram.

She said: “I’d like to thank Roy for his sterling leadership over the past 10 years, for helping to shape the Leicester office and steer it to its market-leading position in Leicester and beyond.

“Both Louise and I look forward to taking on the challenge and continuing Roy’s great work.”

Shakespeare Martineau managing director Victoria Tester said: “Location means a lot to us and our clients and, unlike other firms that are retreating from local office footprints, we are expanding.

“As well as widening our talent pool, this benefits our clients by giving them direct access to legal experts who know and are embedded in the local market, and who are supported by our full-service national offering.

“We see the potential of the East Midlands market, and the breadth of services we provide in the region.

“We look forward to Lisa, Louise and Roger working with our clients and contacts within the region to unlock that potential and continue to evolve our East Midlands hubs’ dynamic culture and positive environment.”

Louise Ingram has expertise is residential development and works with landowners, promoters and developers to deliver new homes across the region. She has been named as a leading individual in her field by the Legal 500.

Roger Harcourt has been with Shakespeare Martineau since 2006 and advises clients on starting, buying, investing in and selling companies. He specialises in fast growth businesses as well as social and primary care providers and medtech businesses.

Shakespeare Martineau is part of legal and professional services group Ampa, which employs more than 1,400 people over 18 UK hubs.
