Herbert Smith Freehills promotes Lyn Harris to partner in Belfast
Global law firm Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has announced the promotion of Lyn Harris to partner in the firm’s alternative legal services (ALT) centre in Belfast.
Ms Harris is the third partner to be promoted from the ALT team in Belfast following Lisa McLaughlin and Libby Jackson.
Since its establishment in 2011, the ALT office in Belfast has grown from 19 fee earners to over 240 lawyers, technologists and legal analysts today.
Ms Harris joined HSF in 2012 from a large Northern Ireland law firm where she was a partner and head of dispute resolution. She maintains overall responsibility for the delivery of legal services within the ALT office in Belfast as well as leading the ALT office in New York.
Ms Harris said: “I am honoured and extremely pleased to have been promoted to the partnership at HSF. I work with an inspirational global team in ALT and it is made even better being based in our vibrant City of Belfast.
“Helping the ALT practice grow into the global, technology-enabled service that it is today has been a privilege and one that I know will continue as we strive to provide our clients with the very best service, driven by technical legal excellence.”
