Two leading lawyers have joined Knights as the business continues its growth across the South East.  

International tax Partner Mark Tan joins Knights’ Corporate team in Weybridge, bringing more than two decades of experience supporting clients.

He has also held senior in-house tax roles for global companies, including Louis Dreyfus Company, The LEGO Group and Asahi.

Mark is joined by Real Estate Partner Bharat Nahar, who has more than 25 years’ experience as a Real Estate lawyer in the City of London – including as Head of Retail and Diversity and Inclusion at a Top 100 firm.

Bharat brings a sharp commercial focus to an array of complex property issues for a broad mix of clients including retail giants Smyths Toys, Monsoon and Accessorize.

Mark Tan, Corporate Partner at Knights said:

“Having worked in an in-house capacity for over a decade, I am excited to join a commercially forward-thinking firm that delivers client service way beyond traditional law firms.”

Bharat Nahar, Real Estate Partner at Knights, said:

“I am delighted to join Knights. It’s an ambitious business with people who go the extra mile for  their clients, colleagues and communities.”

Mark and Bharat are the latest arrivals to Knights, following the appointment of several new Partners in recent weeks – and more set to join soon.

They both join a growing team in Weybridge that works alongside Knights’ 1,500-strong team of colleagues in the largest regional legal and professional services business operating outside London.

With 23 offices nationwide, Knights is ranked within the top 50 UK law firms by revenue – providing multiple services to business clients alongside premium advisory services to private individuals.

Darren Walker, Client Services Director at Knights, said:

“Mark and Bharat are the latest talented lawyers to join us in a period of really exciting organic growth. We are growing across the South East, building on the opening our flagship Brighton office, and we look forward to completing our premium office space in Weybridge later this year.

“It’s an exciting time as we get ready for further growth.”

Knights’ team in Weybridge are based at Bourne Business Park.
