Eversheds appoints new senior office partners across UK offices
Eversheds has announced new senior office partner roles for the firm’s London, Newcastle, Nottingham and Cardiff offices. The changes will take effect as of 1 May 2014.
In London, financial services partner Pamela Thompson will be the new London senior office partner. She takes the reins from pensions partner Anthony Arter who has held the role for the last five years.
Thompson, a highly regarded partner in the firm’s financial services team, was last year named as one of the 100 most influential women in the financial markets by Financial News in its 2013 ranking.
At the same time, in the Newcastle office, partner and head of the firm’s shipping group Stephen Mackin will be taking on the role of Newcastle senior office partner. Mackin takes the helm from restructuring partner Paul Dutton, who has held the role for the last two years and will now be undertaking a broader role within the northern corporate restructuring teams.
In the Nottingham office, employment partner Mark Fletcher will be assuming the role of Nottingham senior office partner. Fletcher takes over from commercial partner James Fry, who has held the role for almost six years.
Meanwhile, in the Cardiff office, real-estate partner Kathryn Roberts will be taking on the role of Cardiff senior office partner. Roberts takes the reins from Alan Meredith, who has held the role for the last 14 years.
