Top-100 national law firm Bevan Brittan has promoted six colleagues in its Birmingham office.
The promotions include two new Partners, a Legal Director, two Senior Associates and an Associate across the firm’s Commercial & Infrastructure, Clinical Risk, and Litigation, Advisory & Regulatory teams.
The promotions in Birmingham are part of a national promotions round which has seen 28 colleagues successfully further their careers with Bevan Brittan. The figure is among the largest number of promotions in a single year for the business.
Bevan Brittan’s Managing Partner Duncan Weir said: “There is no denying that economic pressures this year have created challenges and uncertainty, but yet again we have risen to the challenge. These promotions recognise the significant contributions that these colleagues have made to our business. Together with our wider teams, including the new recruits who have joined us over the past 12 months, these promotions will help to provide the strength and depth that we need to achieve our ambitious targets and drive the business forward over the coming year.”
Rebecca Pendlebury, Head of Bevan Brittan’s Birmingham office, added: “It is an exciting time for our Birmingham office. These well-deserved promotions come just as we prepare to move into larger premises in the city and we’re welcoming on board some fantastic new clients and team members. This promotions round also includes individuals who started at the firm as trainees and that reflects the excellent career development opportunities that we offer.
“Congratulations to everyone who has been promoted and thank you for everything you do to support our clients and make Bevan Brittan a great place to work.”
The promotions build on 31 senior lateral hires, including four new partners, who have joined the business in the last 12 months as the firm worked towards achieving its tenth consecutive year of revenue and profit growth in the 22/23 financial year.
