Bargate Murray becomes an ABS (Alternative Business Structure), appoints a new non-lawyer director and celebrates 15 successful years in business since its foundation in 2004

Quentin Bargate, Founder and CEO, commented:

“Bargate Murray becoming an ABS is great news for the firm and for clients. It won’t change the way we work, but it will allow us greater flexibility to introduce new expertise to the firm by appointing non-lawyer shareholders and directors with appropriate business acumen and new skills, and accept outside investment for growth.

“Outdated job titles, like partner, are no longer relevant.  We are a modern firm and we want our job titles to reflect that fact. 

“A first change is the appointment of Graham Agass of Graymatters, private business consultants and a former banker, to the board.  Graham is an old friend and an expert banker whose financial acumen will be invaluable.

“In addition to the change to become an ABS, May 2019 is  the 15th anniversary of the foundation of Bargate Murray, (originally called Quentin Bargate & Co). Becoming an ABS is a good way to build for the future.”
