National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has announced its 2021 promotions list which includes three Southampton-based lawyers.
Promoted to partner is Amy Peacey, a solicitor in the commercial team specialising in commercial contract matters. Amy acts for clients of all sizes from family businesses to large organisations across a wide range of sectors.
Promoted to senior associate are employment and HR solicitor, Nicole Adams, who advises both employers and employees on contentious employment matters, and Kristian Johnson who specialises in commercial property.
Across the firm’s seven regional offices three lawyers were promoted to partner, seven to senior associate and 11 to associate.
Clarke Willmott CEO, Stephen Rosser, said: “This year’s internal promotions process was undertaken during unprecedented times, and during discussions with candidates, it was evident how well individuals and teams have been adapting to our new ways of working. It really has been a pleasure to see so many excellent examples of how those being promoted have stepped up in readiness for their new roles.
“Developing our people is absolutely fundamental to us as a business and the great service that we can provide to our clients is only possible due to the great people we have within the firm. This has become even more critical as we embrace the flexible ways of working and those promoted will assume greater responsibilities and in many cases leadership roles and the skills they have demonstrated will be vital as we become accustomed to a new normal.”
Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
