Wragges makes up two to partner

Wragge & Co has promoted two lawyers to its partnership, one fewer than last year.

IP specialist Kate Swaine and construction lawyer Daniel Wood, who are both based in the firm’s Birmingham office, will become partners on 1 May this year.

Senior partner Quentin Poole said the duo were “outstanding lawyers” who are “sector-focused, technically excellent and commercially savvy”.

Swaine becomes the 12th partner in Wragges’ IP team, while Wood’s promotion brings the number of construction partners to eight.

Last year Wragges promoted three lawyers to partner (6 March 2012), ending a one-year promotion freeze.
