Promotions at Blanchards Bailey

Blanchards Bailey are delighted to announce a raft of promotions, including two new Partners, as business continues to grow.

Five new strategic roles will strengthen the firm’s key teams and bolster developing sectors.

Over the course of the last year we have worked hard to implement the latest technological developments, embrace innovative working methods and invest heavily in staff to ensure clients were offered an unbroken service during such troubled and challenging times.

The two new partners are Laura Martin, Head of Family Law, and Ben Jones, Litigation & Disputes.

Laura, with Blanchards Bailey since 2004, deals with all aspects of family law, is a Law Society Accredited Family Mediator and is mentioned by the Legal 500.

She said: “Although I am thrilled to have been made Partner, obviously my work in helping people through some of the most difficult times of their lives will continue unabated.”

Ben, with the firm since 2017, specialises in all aspects of property and company commercial disputes as well as over-seeing the firm’s marketing initiatives.

He said: “It is an honour to have been made Partner. Blanchards Bailey is very much an outward-looking firm and my intention is to help drive business forward.”

Also promoted and taking up their new roles from 1 April are: Lucy Mignot, Senior Associate; Catherine Roberts, Senior Associate and Matt Collis, Associate.

Catherine, Blanchards Bailey’s Head of Dorchester Private Client, deal with all aspects of private client work with a particular interest in work assisting elderly clients.

She said: “I am delighted to have been made Senior Associate. Obviously, we continue to live and work in challenging times but I am excited by the firm’s plans for the future.”

Managing Partner Paul Dunlop said: “All five colleagues thoroughly deserve their promotions. They went through our arduous new selection process to ensure their excellence, understanding and commitment to our cause.”

The promotions come following the end of a financial year during which Blanchards Bailey was extensively recognised in the UK's leading law sector directory, the Legal 500 2020/21. The firm was recommended in six specialist categories with seven individual lawyers mentioned.
