Cardiff-headquartered Hugh James has added three lawyers to the partnership in its latest round of promotions.
It is a reduced round on 2012 when five were promoted by the firm.
The three new partners are insurance and corporate risk specialist Stephanie Eedy; clinical negligence specialist Grainne Barton and Gareth Wisdom, who heads the firm’s wills volume business.
Cardiff-based Eedy joined Hugh James in 2011 from NewLaw before which she spent 21 years with Eversheds in Cardiff.
Barton joined the firm earlier last year from Penningtons to launch Hugh James’ London office, which focuses on clinical negligence. Barton heads the team and is the only partner based in London. There are plans to extend the Cardiff practice areas to London over the next three years.
