Cohen Cramer names new Managing Director

Emma Mason and Simon Baskind

Cohen Cramer solicitors has started the new year with the appointment of a new Managing Director.

Emma Mason, who joined the practice as a Trainee Solicitor over 19 years ago, has stepped into the role previously held by Simon Baskind.

Simon, who had been with the practice since 1995 and retired at the end of last year, said: “I think you get to instinctively know when it’s time to go, and that time often is promoted when the right successor comes along. That is exactly what has happened to us in relation to Emma. It is definitely her time in the sun.”

Other movements at the practice include the appointment of Mike Massen and David Hall as directors and the addition of Michael O’Garra, Kristen O’Garra and Vanda Haunch to form one of the largest criminal law departments in the county.

Richard Manning has also joined the practice to deal with high-value matrimonial matters.
