Independent law firm Brabners has promoted three of its lawyers to partner across its healthcare, charity and family practices.
Nicola Lomas leads Brabners’ work in the dental industry and joined the firm in 2016. Her practice forms part of the firm’s healthcare sector specialist team that has grown rapidly over the last two years.
Graeme Hughes is an experienced charity lawyer and has specialised in the third sector since 2010. He is recognised by the Legal 500 as a ‘Leading Individual’ in the industry and acts for well-known local and national charities including Youth Federation, United Kingdom Islamic Mission, Turner Home, the British Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and several charitable foundations associated with professional football clubs.
Natalie Dickson joined Brabners in 2007 and is a highly regarded family lawyer. She is a member of Resolution, former Secretary of Merseyside Young Professionals and committee member of both Merseyside Women’s Lawyers Division and Liverpool Ladies Network. She is also a trustee of the Brabners Foundation, the firm’s charitable arm.
The three partner announcements come as Brabners also confirmed promotions for 23 other lawyers – five to legal director, eight to senior associate and ten to associate.
Nik White, managing partner at Brabners, said: “We are only as strong as our people and 26 promotions across the firm is indicative of the quality of the lawyers we have onboard. We will always seek to attract the best externally but looking after the colleagues we already have in the business and nurturing their development and progress is just as vital to our continued growth.
“Despite the difficult times we’re all living through, I’m determined that we will never be a business that stands still. Recognising and celebrating the exceptional talent in our firm is even more important now as we look to push forward, maintain the momentum and continue to build during the challenging economic conditions.”
