Stockport law firm SAS Daniels LLP has announced five senior promotions across a range of practice areas, including two promotions to partner.
Vicky Timothy has been promoted to partner following an upsurge in private client work. Based at the Stockport office, she joined the firm three years ago from international firm Penningtons Manches Cooper.
Jeremy Orrell (pictured), chief executive officer at SAS Daniels, said:
The pandemic has been a challenging time for all businesses, not least those providing legal services, but we are continuing to invest in developing the business and have made key appointments across a range of practice areas.”
Meanwhile, Victoria Bury has been promoted to partner in the firm’s residential property department. Victoria joined the firm in 2014 and is based at the Macclesfield office. She has acted for clients and property intermediaries in the Cheshire area for 20 years.
The firm has appointed three senior associates to reflect a 40 percent increase in residential instructions over the 12 months prior to the pandemic.
Steph Lyke and Sara Williams have been appointed senior associates in the Chester office and Jo Unwin, who joined the firm in 2006, has been appointed senior associate at the Congleton office.
Jeremy Orrell, added:
At times like this it is important to recognise the contribution of colleagues to the continuing success of the firm. These appointments were all in the pipeline before the pandemic but we decided to let matters settle before progressing them.
“We have clear career progression plans for our team, and it is excellent news that we have been able to assist in the development and progression of our colleagues. There is no doubt business has been tough, but we have been experiencing significant increasing demand for our legal services and this is reflected in these appointments.”
