Associates promoted to partners at law firm

Commercial law firm Carson McDowell has promoted four associates to partners of the firm, reflecting the growth of the business.

The firm, which has over 100 people working in its Belfast office, made Emma Cooper a partner in its property practice, Stuart Murphy a partner in construction, Dawn McKnight a partner in corporate and commerical and Leigh Linton a partner in litigation.

Senior partner Alan Reilly said “These promotions reflect the growth which we are still experiencing within the firm.

“Three months ago, we announced the recruitment of five new lawyers to the firm and these additional promotions highlight that we are continuing to perform strongly across all sectors, including property and construction.

“We are committed to hiring and promoting the best people to ensure our clients have access to expertise across a range of disciplines right here in Belfast.”

Commenting on the outlook for Northern Irish businesses Mr Reilly added: “There is no doubt that the economy is brighter than it was this time last year and despite the prospect of public sector cuts and slow growth, I think our continued recruitment and promotions show just how confident we are about the market and the economy generally.”

He said business clients still needed to access the best expertise.
