Hill Dickinson announces 18 new promotions
Law firm Hill Dickinson creates 18 new associates and senior associates including five at its Liverpool headquarters
Liverpool law firm Hill Dickinson has announced a new round of promotions.
It has created 18 new associates and senior associates. They span all of its three core business groups – business services, health and marine. They also cover six of the firm’s 10 UK and international offices including Singapore and Hong Kong.
Five of the promotions are at the Liverpool headquarters. They are Phil Styles (construction), Kelly Monaghan (private client), Carley Dhand (employment and education), Kelly Miller and Laura Myles (both litigation).
Hill Dickinson chief executive Peter Jackson, who last week announced his retirement, said: “We’ve seen a regular intake of incredibly bright and personable talent from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences in recent years.
“With each successive promotions round we are reaping the rewards from that as our junior lawyers begin to rise through the ranks.
“Having marked our sixth consecutive year of financial growth for the year ending April 2022 I am in no doubt about the role our people play in enabling us to achieve those results. I extend my warmest congratulations, and those of the board, to them all.”
Hill Dickinson is seeing greater numbers of women coming through into senior roles. Overall this year, 11 of the 18 lawyers promoted (just over 61%) are women.
Carolyn Morgan, director of HR, added: “We are pleased that so many of our junior lawyers are successfully advancing their careers with us, in particular the increasing numbers of women.
“A renewed focus on learning and development in the past 18 months is playing an important role in this, enabling everyone, regardless of gender, work patterns, team and location, to access the same opportunities to progress, firm-wide.”
