Trio of senior appointments at Band Hatton Button

A leading Coventry law firm is continuing to strengthen with a trio of senior promotions.

Band Hatton Button, in Warwick Road, has announced a round of promotions as part of its ongoing growth and development strategy.

Mark Moseley, managing director at the firm, has stepped up to the board as a partner. He joined Band Hatton in 2008 and has over 20 years’ experience as a business leader in the financial and legal sectors.

In 2013 he oversaw the successful merger of Varley Hibbs, Button Legal and Band Hatton.

Michelle Gavin has been made a partner at the firm after joining the company in January 2014 from SGH Martineau, as associate and head of the firm’s trusts and probate department.

Her expertise include wills, trusts, estate planning, home protection trusts, the administration of estates and trusts along with lasting powers of attorney and court of protection work.

Sarah Avern joined Band Hatton in 2003 and is widely regarded as one of the leading residential property lawyers in the city.

She has been promoted to associate, head of residential property, where she heads up a team of expert lawyers specialising in a wide-range of property matters including sales, purchases, transfers of equity, shared equity schemes, lease extensions and help to buy purchases.

Band Hatton Button is one of the largest law practices in the city with 16 partners and in all over 75 employees now based at the firm.

The company offers a wide range of expertise from commercial and residential property to employment, litigation and dispute resolution matters, and personal injury and accident claims, corporate and commercial work, and wills, probate and family matters.

Philip Costigan, senior partner at Band Hatton Button, said: “We are extremely pleased to have announced three key promotions at the firm in April this year to coincide with the second anniversary of our merged firm, which will greatly help to strengthen our position in the legal sector.

“Mark has been instrumental in the successful development of the firm since his arrival. Our merger has been highly successful and has allowed our new firm to grow significantly, and Mark played a key part in that process.

“Mark, Michelle and Sarah are all highly-skilled professionals with a wealth of knowledge and experience. They have each helped to shape the growth of Band Hatton Button over the last few years and will play a leading role in the firm’s ongoing succession strategy.

“Band Hatton Button has a well-established reputation for providing an outstanding range and quality of service to its clients and this is thanks to the hard work and dedication of the expert team of lawyers and business professionals at the heart of the business.”
