Truin made managing partner at Barr Ellison
Emma Truin has been appointed managing partner at leading Cambridge law firm Barr Ellison.
In her new role, Truin will focus on ensuring continued high-quality service provision to the firm’s regional client base as well as continuing the growth of the firm overseen by the outgoing managing partner Robert Curry over the past 10 years.
Truin is a top-ranked lawyer in her field in the Legal 500 and Chambers with 30 years legal experience.
She ran the Cambridge office of Slater & Gordon before moving to Barr Ellison in 2016 and becoming catastrophic injury partner a year later. Emma is chair of Headway Cambridgeshire, leading it successfully through a period of change.
She said: “This is a pivotal time for the region’s economy and with renewed momentum we look forward to an even greater opportunity to help our clients and our people succeed.”
Emma becomes managing partner on August 1; Robert will remain as a partner, focusing on client care and risk management.
He said: “Quite frankly, it’s difficult to let go, as I’ve enjoyed growing the firm to more than double its turnover during my tenure. However, it feels the right time to hand over the reins to Emma, who has proven talent, and I look forward to working with her and the partners to continue our success story in Cambridge.”
Partner Sarah Martin, head of Family Law, has also been appointed to the Management Board and will work with Emma Truin in the day-to-day running of the firm.
Sarah joined Barr Ellison in 2015 from a Band 1 black country law firm and has been a partner since 2017. Partner Francis Durrant remains as the head of the firm’s hugely successful Trusts & Estates team.
Senior partner, Elizabeth Deyong says: “Barr Ellison has a rich history of delivering quality legal expertise in Cambridgeshire, while constantly evolving to meet the challenges posed by today’s changing marketplace, and Emma Truin is perfectly suited to managing the firm through its next phase of growth. We look forward to delivering for our clients over the next decade.”
