Law firm makes raft of promotions

Law firm Freeths has made almost 100 promotions across the business as it continues to bolster its offering throughout the UK.

A total of 95 colleagues have been promoted across all legal and business support service areas within the firm’s 13 offices including four partner and 73 lawyer promotions.

This year, over 50% of these promotions are women, demonstrating the firm’s ongoing commitment to gender equality.

Within the senior promotions, alongside 13 Legal Director promotions, there are four Partner Promotions: The Real Estate Team has seen Sarah Rowe achieve Partner; the specialist Environmental and Planning Team has welcomed Ben Derrington to Partner level; Henry Clappinson has become Partner in Freeths’ Restructuring and Insolvency Team, and the firm’s Family Practice promotions included Mark Heppinstall to Partner.

Freeths has also made a number of lateral hires over the past 12 months, including within the last three months alone Clean Energy Partner Deborah Harvey from Osborne Clarke, Patents Director Richard Ellis from Murgitroyd, Tax Partner Stephen Jones from DLA Piper, Corporate Partner Martin Smith and Insolvency Partner Su Garner, both from Knights Plc.

Karl Jansen, National Managing Partner of Freeths, said: “As a firm, we’re passionate about developing our homegrown talent and it’s imperative that our people feel properly supported in order to be able to progress their careers and provide the very best for our clients.

“I’d like to extend our huge congratulations to everybody at Freeths who has achieved promotion this year, and our thanks to all our colleagues for their hard work, commitment, and valued contributions throughout the year. These successful promotions recognise the breadth of our capabilities as we continue to build upon the strength of our offering.”
