After another strong financial year, national law firm Bevan Brittan has made two senior appointments in its Leeds Office.
Property partner James Atkins becomes the new Leeds Office head and corporate partner Christian Hunt takes over as the firm’s new national head of commercial services.
Within the firm’s latest promotion round, the firm has also promoted Susan Trigg, who is part of the firm’s Clinical Risk team in Leeds, to Partner.
The firm has seen seven new partners join in little more than 12 months, with two having moved to Bevan Brittan already in 2021. Experienced pensions lawyer Nigel Bolton joined the firm’s growing Employment, Pensions & Immigration practice in Leeds earlier in the year, while property finance expert Jessica Church arrived last month.
James Atkins, head of the firm’s Leeds Office, said: “It has been another strong twelve months for our Leeds Office and nationally. As the new Leeds Office head, I am pleased to congratulate Susan on her well-deserved recognition in being promoted to Partner.
“It is fantastic for our business that we have so many talented people with so much to offer our clients in terms of experience, technical ability and their passion for what they do.
“This positive news adds to the growing momentum we have been building from our base in Leeds over the past five-and-a-half years. We are proud of our established presence in Yorkshire, having grown from a team of just 8 in 2015 to one of 60 today and I look forward to seeing that growth continue in my new role.”
