Tim Batchelor - Promotion

Congratulations to Tim Batchelor, who has recently been promoted to Senior Consultant at Thornton Legal.

Tim joined the business in September 2019 and primarily covers the market in Manchester, dealing with commercial roles for a number of the UK’s Top 100 Law Firms.

He previously worked as a headhunter in London specialising in pensions law before relocating to Chester where he was an accomplished garden designer.

Tim has been a great addition to the team at Thornton Legal where he has put his experience of proactive, targeted recruitment into action.

In spite of the Covid pandemic of the last 12 months, Tim has made great strides establishing himself in what is a tough market and has made a number of excellent recent placements including:

  • Insolvency Partner – Brabners
  • Senior Employment Associate – DWF
  • Senior Corporate Associate – Freeths
  • Private Client Principal Associate – Weightmans
  • Private Client Associate – Gateley

When I met up with the Senior Partner of a large regional practice before Christmas, he described Tim as one of the best, most diligent recruiters he had dealt with.

Both Joe and I have been delighted with what Tim has achieved in such a short period of time. His dedication in leaving no stone unturned in getting results for his clients has made us both up our game! Notwithstanding his valuable contribution to the business in a recruitment sense, his cheerful and good-natured characteristics have been a big boost to morale in a challenging 12 months.

We are all looking forward to seeing what Tim will achieve once the market picks up over the summer and beyond. He deserves all of the success that will undoubtedly come his way!
