Alex Castiglione appointed Partner
We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Alex Castiglione, our current Head of Commercial Property, as Partner.
Alex joined Barcan+Kirby in 2002 as a temporary receptionist, and took the opportunity to obtain her Chartered Legal Executive qualifications, specialising in commercial property, with assistance from the firm.
Since qualifying in 2007, Alex continued to grow the firm’s commercial property division from its Clifton office, dealing with legal issues relating to commercial property sales and purchases, land acquisitions, plot sales and commercial re-financing.
In 2016, Alex became the first Legal Executive to be promoted to Senior Associate in the firm’s history.
Her further promotion to Head of Commercial Property last year cemented her position as a key player within the firm, whilst her efforts to grow Barcan+Kirby’s offering to small to medium-sized businesses in the Bristol area, have continued to show results.
Bill Willcocks, Managing Partner at Barcan+Kirby, responded to Alex’s appointment:
“Congratulations to Alex, who really is considered a ‘home grown talent’ at the firm.
“We are proud of her achievements and her ongoing contribution to the firm, not only in terms of her legal expertise and commercial awareness, but also as a valued member of the team.”
“I am delighted to be promoted to Partner at Barcan+Kirby,” added Alex Castiglione.
“Having started at the firm in 2002, it proves that hard work, loyalty, and dedication really do pay off. I’m looking forward to working with the partners to expand the firm and its offerings in 2018.
I would like to thank my current commercial property team who have worked so hard this year, and management for supporting me throughout my career.”
