Macfarlanes promotes four to partnership
Macfarlanes has promoted four lawyers to the partnership, in its annual promotions round, down from last year’s five promotions.
Transactional and advisory corporate lawyer Jessica Adam was promoted along with non-contentious construction lawyer Angus Dawson, corporate lawyer Emmie Jones, and disputes specialist Andy Mather.
Senior partner Charles Martin said: “These appointments are further evidence of our focus on internal partner appointments, supplemented from time to time with lateral recruits. Three out of these four appointees trained with the firm and our commitment to trainee recruitment as an essential long-term investment is undiminished, notwithstanding the general market trend towards reduced numbers.
“As the mix of work types and our client base continue to adapt and evolve, activity levels across the firm remain encouraging. These appointments demonstrate our confidence that our distinctive offering and approach will continue to be successful in a rapidly changing and challenging market.”
