Walker Morris makes up duo to partnership

Leeds firm Walker Morris has promoted two lawyers to its partnership, along with eight new directors.

The firm has promoted regulatory lawyer Andrew Northage and construction specialist Jules Harbage to its partnership.

Northage is the third senior addition to the regulatory team in six months, following the hire of Trudy Feaster-Gee in February (14 February 2013) and Ray Watson last year (13 September 2012).

The director appointments come across the firm, including in the litigation, employment, planning, trade marks and projects groups.

In 2012 Walker Morris promoted no partners, but promoted two new directors and 11 associates.

The firm recently grew its litigation capacity with the addition of Cobbetts’ finance litigation practice (7 February 2013).
