Associate level promotions for six lawyers
A growing Coventry law firm will see the New Year in with associate level promotions for six of its lawyers.
Band Hatton Button, based on Warwick Road in the city centre, has promoted lawyers Charlotte Macalister, Christina Polychronakis and Lisa Moseley from the firm's wills, trusts and probate team to associate.
Kristy Ainge and Raman Dhillon from the firm's litigation department are also starting 2019 at associate level, as is residential property lawyer Rani Bola.
The promotions come off the back of a strong period of growth for the firm, which currently has an annual budget of £4.5 million.
"This particular group epitomises why we are growing organically as a business with their positive customer feedback and dedication to personal development, whether that's expanding their legal knowledge or engaging with community groups," said Mark Moseley, managing director at Band Hatton Button.
"They have around 50 years of service to the firm between them.
"Charlotte, Christina and Lisa are all now accredited members of Solicitors for the Elderly, and are signed up as Dementia Friends, ensuring they are tuned in to how issues affecting the nation's elderly community can affect their assets in later life.
"Having Kristy on board as a solicitor advocate also means we are able to represent clients in court as well rather than handing a case over to a third party - and because of her strong networking skills we are making significant headway with this service.
"Raman joined us two years ago with a sterling track record of acting on multi-million pound cases and has developed her case load to drive strong year-on-year growth for the litigation department.
"Rani is one of our longest-serving colleagues having joined us in 2000 and has built up unrivalled relationships with a range of the region's estate agents, which has stood us in good stead, and the residential department continues to see exorbitant work levels.
"This group of professionals are role models for other up-and-coming lawyers which is particularly useful as we look to expand our teams further over the coming year."
