The role of Associate Director aims to provide ambitious lawyers with an alternative role to partnership, while enabling them to continue to develop their careers with the firm.

Associate Directors take on specific management roles, giving them the opportunity to develop their careers with us without taking on the full responsibilities of partnership. This new career option is proving very popular with associates, who appreciate that it is a meaningful and highly valued role within the firm.”

“It is also pleasing to be able to recognise the importance of the role of professional support lawyers in these promotions. The three PSLs we have promoted make a significant contribution within their practice areas and fully deserve to be recognised in this way.”
