National law firm Bevan Brittan has continued its impressive start to 2024 by announcing its fifth senior hire since the turn of the year.

The latest positive news sees the arrival of experienced Partner Lucy Doran, who brings her strong track record in large infrastructure projects and procurement to the firm’s Commercial Health team as it continues to see a rise in new instructions.

Her recruitment means Bevan Brittan has announced a quintet of senior hires already in 2024. It has added three new colleagues to its highly-respected Housing team, as well as a fourth new joiner to its rapidly-expanding Energy & Resource Management team.

Lucy joins from Trowers & Hamlins in London, where she was also a Partner and acted as the lead legal adviser on a wide range of large-scale infrastructure projects, supporting clients on the drafting and negotiating of contracts and on procurement matters.

She works across sectors including health, local government, regeneration, housing and education. Lucy advises public sector clients and those contracting with them on their projects from inception to operation. She provides full procurement support on projects as well as discrete pieces of procurement advice and option appraisal support. 

Announcing Lucy’s arrival, Partner Sharon Renouf, who leads the Commercial Health team at Bevan Brittan, said: “Lucy is another strong addition to our team and to our business as a whole which maintains the momentum we have established from the very beginning of the year.

“Lucy’s arrival shows yet again that Bevan Brittan is an attractive destination for experienced and well-regarded senior people who want to develop their careers in a firm which has grown consistently and continues to increase its client base across the public and private sector.

“She is joining at a time when our public sector clients are being asked to do more with less. This means they are focused on obtaining value for money through procurement, while also considering the challenges of switching to a new procurement regime in October this year.”

Lucy added: “I am excited to join a team which is recognised as a leader in the Commercial Health public sector and procurement marketplace and a firm which offers exciting opportunities and the chance to work flexibly across clients and sectors. 

“The team here already has impressive breadth and depth and I am looking forward to adding my experience and working with new colleagues to meet the challenges facing private and public sector clients.”

Bevan Brittan’s latest recruitment news comes after it announced four other new senior hires in January, including three for its fast-growing Housing team. Partner Katie Dyer and Legal Director Yvonne Mao also arrived from Trowers & Hamlins in London, while Birmingham-based corporate and regulatory Partner Rose Klemperer joined from Devonshires.

The quartet of January announcements was completed by Sarah Innes, who joined as a Legal Director from Bexley Beaumont in Birmingham. She is a further addition to an Energy team which also welcomed three new joiners in the final weeks of December.

These latest hires follow a successful 2023 for Bevan Brittan, in which it achieved its tenth consecutive year of growth with revenue reaching £67.3m.
