Mark said: “It means a lot that employees such as myself who work behind the scenes are celebrated, and I look forward to continuing to support the Firm in my new role.”
Managing partner Chris Allen said: “It is really important that we celebrate everyone that contributes to the success of the Firm, so the promotions of both Tom and Mark are thoroughly deserved.
