Law firm celebrates record-breaking number of promotions

Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) is celebrating a record breaking number of promotions.

More than 30 staff of the firm which has an office in Cheltenham were promoted at the start of April.

Managing partner Rod Thomas said: "To attract and retain the best talent, from all backgrounds, we have not only embraced Smart Working practices but also invested significantly to ensure that HCR continues to be a place where anyone can thrive and we attract people interested in having a career with a different type of law firm.

"Despite the firm's increasing size, the energy, enthusiasm and friendliness of our people continues to be one of the reasons people want to join the firm."

Deborah Brumwell, HR director and head of the promotions group said: "Our staff are our greatest asset, so our career development initiatives such as offering international secondments, one-to-one and group mentoring, 'Fast Track', early contact with clients and business development training are an important part of why our people choose to stay with HCR.

"Investing in our people is not only the right thing to do, but also the smart thing and large promotion rounds are the result of a great deal of hard work from some very dedicated colleagues. We wish all of those promoted the very best of luck on the next step of their journey."

Harrison Clark Rickerbys has more than 800 staff and partners based at offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Central England, Cheltenham, Hereford, London, Thames Valley, Worcester and the Wye Valley, providing a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients regionally and nationwide.

The firm has global reach via its network of independent law firms, LawExchange International. It also has a number of highly successful teams specialising in individual sectors, including health and social care, education, technology, agricultural and rural affairs, finance and financial services, defence, security and the forces, and construction.
