We’re delighted to have promoted five Solicitors to Partner in our annual round of promotions, taking our total number of Partners to 55!
Two Solicitors, Rachel Orgill-Harris and Natalie Swales, have been promoted in our Banking, Corporate & Governance team.
Carlos Fernandes, from our Securitisation team, Joanna Bouloux from Real Estates & Projects, and Pauline Lépissier from Litigation and Dispute Resolution have also been promoted.
The promotions follow a sustained period of growth us with Partner Krissun Soodin joining our London Real Estate and Projects team and three experienced Solicitors joining our Leeds office in the past year. We have also recently taken on 12 new Trainee Solicitors, taking our total number of Trainees to 33.
Just over 12 months ago, we also opened an office in Birmingham with the arrival of Gemma Bell, together with three other lawyers specialising in advising on corporate, regulatory and governance issues.
Philip Barden, Senior Partner, says:
“Congratulations to all five of our newly promoted Partners. They are all excellent Solicitors with a passion for getting the best possible outcome for their clients.”
“I’m delighted that these recent promotions also take our female Partner count to over 45% demonstrating our ambition to attract and develop a diverse workforce. The future success of the firm will be in their hands, so it is gratifying and reassuring to welcome ambitious, driven, and hard-working lawyers to the partnership at an exciting time of growth for us.”
