MOVING UP FOR 2016
Talented lawyers are celebrating the New Year with promotion at leading law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys in Cheltenham, as the firm continues to develop and nurture its teams.
John Lawley, based in Cheltenham, and Rosalind Andrews, who works from Worcester and Cheltenham, move up from associate to senior associate and Cheltenham-based Lisette Macdonald moves up from solicitor to associate.
Rosalind specialises in planning and highways law, including local plans, judicial review applications and negotiating planning obligations, and has considerable experience of acting for both developers, local authorities and local residents’ groups.
Focusing on divorce, separation, civil partnerships and financial provision for children, John also specialises in pre- and post-nuptial agreements – he is a member of Resolution, the lawyers’ organisation supporting non-court approaches to family law.
Lisette, who also works in Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ private client team, is adept at handling legal issues concerning estate planning, tax and trusts, as well as dealing with Court of Protection and power of attorney issues.
Lisette said: “I am obviously delighted to have been promoted – to have my efforts rewarded in this way is very flattering. I know I speak for all of those who have been promoted in saying that we very much appreciate the recognition this offers us.”
Harrison Clark Rickerbys has 380 staff and partners based at offices in Cheltenham, Hereford, Worcester, the Wye Valley, Birmingham and the Thames Valley, who provide a complete spectrum of legal services to both business and private clients, regionally and nationwide. The firm also has a number of highly successful teams specialising in individual market sectors, including health and social care, education, agricultural and rural affairs, hospitality and leisure, defence, security and the forces, and construction.
