Hill Dickinson launches first round of promotions
Law firm Hill Dickinson has announced new partners within its marine and trade team as part of its accelerated partner promotion scheme.
Five legal directors from the firm’s London, Manchester and Piraeus offices have been elevated to partner status. They are: shipping team members (top row L-R) Rosie Goncare (London) and Alexander Freeman (Piraeus); (bottom row L-R) John McNeilly from the commodities team (London); and cargo and logistics team members Tom Turner (London) and Richard Allingham (Manchester).
The traditional view is that partnership can normally only be attained after at least 15 years of post-qualification experience. The accelerated scheme however identifies lawyers currently working as legal directors whose career trajectory and understanding of their chosen area of law is considered exceptional. (cj)
