She was promoted to Member in 2018 and has been head of the Commercial Property Department since 2017.

In the Legal 500 2020 Joanne Wood was again named as a next generation lawyer in the ‘very professional’ Commercial Property practice:

“Joanne Wood and Shelley Fitzpatrick are outstanding to deal with. The firm should treasure such approachable friendly and contactable staff.”

‘”Joanne Wood has a great legal mind and also a great memory which means you get great advice, and she is already aware of our position when we discuss new issues.”
