National firm Beachcroft Wansbroughs has made five associates up to partner, as well as promoting 19 assistants to associate status.
The five new partners come from across the firm’s practice areas, but focus on its core strengths. Chris Doran is being made up in the construction team, while Campbell Dye becomes a commercial litigation partner. Insolvency specialist Giles Hindle has also been promoted, along with Helen Faulkner in the professional and financial risk department and Corinne Slingo in the clinical risk team.
Managing partner-elect Paul Murray said the firm is continuing to target growth in key business areas.
The promotions, which took effect on 1 May, follow a strong year for Beachcrofts. The firm recorded an eight per cent turnover growth to £88m and expects a profit rise of around five per cent, to an average £250,000 per equity partner.
