Madgwicks is pleased to announce the promotions of one Partner, two Senior Associates and two Associates, in recognition of each individual’s talent and contribution to the firm’s continued success.

These appointments are effective 1 July 2017.

Partner, Peter Kennedy, said: “The firm has had a significant year with strong demand for our services, growth in our billings and in turn the opportunity for our staff to extend themselves. These appointments are a reflection of our commitment to organic growth and providing our people with opportunities to rise to new challenges.”

Both lawyers are recognised for their outstanding service to the firm and its clients, along with their high standard of skill and competence in their respective areas of practice.

“As a firm, we have a commitment to excellence. Our culture is about continually developing our people and helping them to realise their potential. This approach allows us to consistently deliver the highest level of service to our clients. We congratulate each and every one of these individuals on their promotion, and we look forward to the continued growth in their careers,” said Peter Kennedy.

With 14 years’ experience in property law, James has established himself as an integral member of the Property team working alongside the team’s three Partners to strengthen the firm’s property practice. Specialising in the areas of commercial property and leasing, property development and commercial law, James’s core clients include land owners, developers, government bodies and major corporations. James joined Madgwicks in 2009 as a Property Lawyer.
