SAS Daniels has become the latest firm to promote a non-lawyer into its equity partner ranks. Chief operating officer (COO) Andrew Perry has taken over responsibility for the central management of all the firm’s offices across Cheshire. Perry joined the firm as business manager in 2003. “Equity status adds an even greater level of involvement and commitment,” he said, “and that’s a real motivator for me.” SAS Daniels joins a growing number of firms to have promoted non-lawyers into the equity. Irwin Mitchell promoted its finance director and costs manager to the partnership earlier this year.
