Commenting on the appointments, managing partner Jonathan Kelly said: “I am especially proud of this year’s round of partner promotions. One of the aims of our strategy has been to grow the firm organically. Each of these new partners has been with the firm for most or all of their career and has thrived within their practice area.

“We are committed to maintaining an environment in which talent can flourish and all of our people can enjoy working together to provide a first-class service to our clients.”
