Bristol-based law firm Burges Salmon has announced the appointment of 13 new directors, with effect from May 1.

The firm says the promotions reflect its ambitious strategy for growth across a number of key areas and specialisms including construction and engineering, corporate, dispute resolution, employment, planning and compulsory purchase, projects, real estate, and tax, trusts, and family.

This large round of director appointments reinforces the firm’s continued focus on delivering an exceptional service to its clients, and each new director will add considerably to the success of the firm moving forward.

The new directors are:

Ellen Williams (construction & engineering)
Lauren Luscombe (construction & engineering)
Julie Book (corporate)
Anna Davis (corporate – funds and financial regulation)
Caroline Brown (dispute resolution)
Lucy Redman (dispute resolution)
Jamie Cameron (employment)
Sarah Sutherland (planning & compulsory purchase)
Lucy Owens (projects)
Paul Clark (real estate)
Will Hall (real estate)
Hannah Petherick (tax, trusts, and family)
Tim Williams (tax, trusts, and family)

Burges Salmon’s managing partner, Roger Bull, said: “It is gratifying to be able to announce these director appointments at the firm.

"Combined with the 10 new internal partner promotions this year, these appointments very much emphasise our ambitious growth plans as a business.

"Each new director is an exceptionally talented lawyer within their field, and will have a significant role to play in fulfilling our vision of being the market-leading independent UK law firm.”
