DAC Beachcroft welcomes five to partnership ranks

DAC Beachcroft has added five lawyers to its partnership, three of whom join its commoditised claims solutions group.

In Leeds the firm has promoted two partners, Vicki Hilton and Chris Baranowski, to

the claims solutions group, while Peter Allchorne joins the partnership in Newport.

The firm’s London partnership has added Mark Roach to the global group and Madeline Ball to the real estate practice.

It follows the announcement in November that Claire Reynolds would join the  employment and pensions partnership and Julitta Yates the real estate partnership, both in London (14 November 2011).

Prior to the firm’s merger with Davies Arnold Cooper (DAC) last November (31 October 2011) Beachcroft made a delayed round of promotions last June, making up six (6 June 2011).

DAC, meanwhile, added just three to its partnership in 2011, with two promoted in its insurance group and one in the construction practice.

Commenting on this latest combined round DAC Beachcroft managing partner Paul Murray said: “Client demand for the expanding services offered by our claims solutions team continues to drive promotions in this area. The firm’s key sector strategies for insurance, health and real estate also predicate the need for more senior team members to work with our clients and grow our service offering.”
