There are three reasons to celebrate this week, with Emma Bryant, part of our corporate team in the Birmingham office, Andrew Gore, a town planner based in our Nottingham office, and Simon Robinson, a member of our London office’s real estate team, having been promoted to the partnership.

Advising both national and international clients on a host of complex commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, Emma helps businesses by taking a practical approach to every challenge. Her technical knowledge and ability to assist clients in meeting their corporate goals has led to her being promoted to associate partner.

Andrew works for our specialist planning consultancy, Marrons Planning, and is now the team’s newest partner. With over 15 years of experience under his belt, Andrew has a level of planning expertise that is hard to beat. During this time, he has worked with a variety of housebuilders, landowners and land-promoters, helping his clients to secure consent for medium to large-scale residential and commercial developments.

Our third and final new partner is Simon, who focuses mainly on commercial property, planning and environment law, supporting clients on a range of real estate issues. As well as providing practical legal advice, Simon adds commercial value to his clients’ property portfolios, following his experience of holding the general counsel position at a fully-listed investment fund.

Helen Hay, our head of HR, said: “Emma, Andrew and Simon are all thoroughly deserving of their promotions to the partnership. They have proven themselves to be indispensable assets to their teams, offering invaluable knowledge and experience.

“The commitment and passion that they have shown is inspiring. Recognising such dedication and empowering our people to be the best they can be is essential to the firm’s success, as, without talented individuals, we wouldn’t be able to give our clients the brilliant results they’ve come to expect. I’m certain that they will continue to thrive in their new roles, supporting their teams in everything they do.”
