About Hugh Strickland

Hugh joined Aaron & Partners in June 2014 as a corporate finance partner, advising on buying and selling companies (often with a cross-border element), financing businesses (both debt and equity), joint venture/shareholder agreements, share option schemes, group re-organisations and general company law.

Hugh leads much of the firm’s banking and finance work and acts for a number of Banks and financial institutions/investors, as well as assisting borrowers with their loan facility and security documents and on receiving investments.

Hugh grew up on the Shropshire/Cheshire border, and served with the Shropshire & Staffordshire Yeomanry TA. After studying engineering at Exeter University, Hugh began his law career with several periods of work experience with Aaron & Partners. He studied law at Staffordshire University, and then spent many years working in a large firm in the East Midlands.

Hereditary deafness runs through the family – Hugh is partially deaf in both ears and is a long-term wearer of hearing aids, as is one of his daughters. Hugh has been very involved in fund-raising for the main UK charity for the deaf, Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID). Given his deafness, Hugh prefers advising his clients face to face or via email, rather than telephone.

Hugh is a trustee and Chairman of the Shropshire RCC – a charity helping mitigate the effects of rural isolation and rural poverty across Shropshire.

Hugh Strickland is listed as a recommended individual for Finance – Banking and finance in the West Midlands area by Legal 500.

It has been great having Hugh back on our panel. He instinctively knows exactly what issues the Bank is concerned about, and comes up with pro-active solutions to them – he is commercial, pragmatic and extremely well organised, Aaron and Partners deliver an excellent service to us.

When the time came to sell our family business, we met with several law firms – Hugh Strickland from Aaron & Partners came to see us and he demonstrated from the outset that he knew what needed to be done, had done this many times before, would look after us throughout the deal and give us top quality advice. We never once regretted appointing Aarons – this deal was a one off for us, but Hugh, Katie Dyson and the rest of the team really looked after us and provided brilliant support, making the process as smooth as possible. Any complications that arose were quickly dealt with, to support all of the family members involved.
