Leeds colleagues recognised in promotions round at Bevan Brittan

Nine colleagues are celebrating new roles at Bevan Brittan’s offices in Leeds, following a record round of promotions for the national law firm.

The business has promoted 38 colleagues in total, creating five new partners across its four UK offices, along with a new legal director, 13 new senior associates, and 19 associates.

The quartet of new senior associates at the firm’s Leeds office includes litigation, advisory and regulatory experts Jessica Boardman and Kyle Duggan. Employment, pensions, and immigration specialist Courtney Janotta and Maria Fert from the commercial and infrastructure department joined them.

Meanwhile, five colleagues in the expanding Yorkshire team have celebrated promotion to associate. Property pair Gemma Graham and Lisa Postlethwaite, employment, pensions and immigration duo Lyndsay Mair and Nicole Natur, and health and care specialist Lauren Howe have all been recognised.

 

Celebrating success

This latest positive news comes after a 12-month period in which Bevan Brittan also recruited 32 new senior hires to meet the growing demand for its services. Three of them joined in Leeds as the team in the city moved past the 100-colleague mark for the first time.

The promotions were welcomed by Lyndon Campbell, partner and head of Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office. “Every single one of our successful colleagues has played a major role in our growth and in meeting the increasing demand for our advice on a broad range of issues,” he said.

“Building on a decade of consistent growth, we continue to go from strength to strength. This year’s promotions reflect both the breadth and depth of the expertise and experience within our business, as well as our commitment to equality and the value we place on diversity. Following this round of promotions, 52% of our Partners are women. Because we know that diversity enriches our business, we will continue supporting talented people to succeed.”

“This is a testament to the reputation we have for the work we do and the clients we act for. Our new joiners also tell us that they value the career development support and hybrid working environment we provide to enable them to balance their lives.”
