Law-led professional services group, Gateley, has announced the promotion of five lawyers across its East Midlands offices.
The promotions span its Corporate, Banking & Finance, Residential Development, Real Estate and Commercial Dispute Resolution teams.
Steven Plummer (Residential Development) has been made partner and Claire Herbert (Commercial Dispute Resolution) has been promoted to legal director.
In addition to this, Beth Mather (Corporate) has been made senior associate and Megan Kirby (Banking & Finance) and Alexander Parkes (Real Estate) have been promoted to associate.
Michael Ward, Chief Executive of Gateley Group, commented: “After another busy year, I am delighted to announce that five lawyers have been promoted across our East Midlands offices. Every individual has contributed to the growth of the business and their promotions are very much deserved.”
The promotions mark the end of a busy financial year for Gateley, in which the firm launched a Residential Conveyancing offering in the East Midlands with the appointment of legal director Lesley Brentnall, as well as the launch of a Residential Development team with the appointment of partner Steven Plummer. Most recently the firm announced its acquisition of land and property law firm, GCL solicitors, resulting in the further expansion of the Residential Development team nationally, as well as strengthening Gateley’s position in the sector.
