DAC Beachcroft’s Louise Bloomfield celebrates accolades

DAC Beachcroft has announced that Louise Bloomfield, employment partner and location head of the firm’s Leeds office, has been listed in The Lawyer Hot 100 2024.


The annual survey by The Lawyer recognises the most adventurous, innovative and dynamic lawyers and barristers in the UK. The Lawyer described Louise as “a legal luminary juggling multiple roles with flair”. DACB welcomed her in 2008 and promoted her to partner in 2014. DACB then elected her as the head of the Leeds location in 2023.

Louise also leads DACB’s national employment practices liability (EPL) insurance practice. She also heads the firm’s employment team in Leeds, which is the largest specialist employment team in the region.

Together with her team, Louise supports household name clients across the retail, hospitality, leisure, insurance, logistics and healthcare sectors. The Chambers and Partners Guide described Louise as “a real leader in the field of employment law” and “a driven and dynamic lawyer”.

Commenting on Louise’s inclusion in this year’s list, DACB’s managing partner and former Hot 100 nominee David Pollitt said, “On behalf of the whole firm I offer my congratulations to Louise on this highly deserved accolade. Her proven leadership skills and excellent legal acumen enable her to deliver outstanding results and get the best out of her team and the office she leads.

Louise commented, “I am thrilled to be listed in the Hot 100. I have the great privilege of leading an exceptional team, working with interesting and diverse clients, and our achievements are testament to the hard work of all my colleagues, not just in Leeds but across the wider firm.”
