Retirements and Promotions at Owen White Solicitors


Jane Masih has been appointed managing director of Owen White Solicitors, following the retirement of outgoing MD Richard Keen.

Richard was with the Slough-based firm for over 40 years and in the role as MD for the last five years. 

Jane, who has been with the firm since 1986, will continue in her role as head of the firm's highly respected franchising team, as well as taking on the new role of managing director.

In further promotions, Mike Smith has been promoted to the role of director. Mike works in the property team, focussing on residential development.

The firm, which specialises in corporate and commercial, commercial property, commercial property disputes, residential development, employment, franchising and litigation was recently appointed to a new Heathrow legal panel.

Jane Masih said,

‘We wish Richard well in his retirement and thank him for his contribution throughout a long and successful career, which helped us to become the law firm we are today. Our recent appointment to the Heathrow Legal Panel is testament to the professionalism of our staff and the quality of our work, which was in no small part as a result of his leadership.   We are also pleased to welcome Mike Smith to the board of directors. His work with our residential developer clients confirms that he will make a significant contribution to the firm in the years to come. 2019 is looking very good for Owen White Solicitors and we are confident of achieving continued success with our strong new team in place.'
