National law firm Bevan Brittan has appointed a new Office Head in London to drive forward its presence and activity in the capital’s legal community.
Banking & Finance Partner Deborah Rowntree will lead on the strategic growth of the office whilst also working with the office’s Social and Community Engagement Committees on activities that make an impact on our London-based colleagues, clients, nominated office charity The Talent Tap, and the wider legal and local communities.
Deborah is taking over the role from fellow Partner Virginia Cooper, who is standing down after three years to focus on both her position on the Board and leading the firm’s Litigation, Regulatory and Public Law team.
The appointment of a new Office Head comes at an exciting time for Bevan Brittan’s London office. It recently boosted its health and social care expertise with the appointment of Partner, Amrita Hurst, while seven London-based colleagues were recognised in the firm’s latest round of promotions.
Commenting on her new role, Deborah said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the London office and support our work and activity across the capital.
“The firm has enjoyed incredible growth over the past ten years, supporting clients in a wide range of markets. The London office has played a significant part in this success and we are proud of the impressive talent, skills and expertise within our teams.
“I would like to thank Virginia for her fantastic contribution across the past three years and I’m looking forward to continuing her good work.”
