Law firm Butcher & Barlow has made a series of key promotions and appointments across its ten North West offices.
The announcement follows last week’s announcement of changes to the management team following the retirement later this year of longtime senior partner Charles Barlow.
The Legal 500 firm also had a makeover at the start of the year with the introduction of a new visual identity.
Mark Turner also joined the partnership. Turner, who joined the firm as an attorney last year, works on the commercial team and specializes in dispute resolution.
Tim Bailey, who joined the firm as a partner last year, is now head of the private client department, and 11 other employees across the firm have been promoted to partner.
Jonathan Aldersley, the firm’s new senior partner, said: “The firm has been through a period of transition and expansion, and we view these internal promotions as another step in our journey.
“We pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ needs and providing sound business advice. For that, we need the right caliber of staff – and these internal promotions and appointments do just that.
“We have always believed in nurturing talent from within and have a well-developed departmental structure and collaborative way of working across the business that enables and encourages our people to thrive – and is another indication of Butcher & Barlow’s focus on excellence and ambition for growth.”
Butcher & Barlow has a head office in Bury with further offices located in Leigh, Prestwich, Tyldesley, Bramhall, Frodsham, two in Northwich, and Runcorn and Sandbach.
