Michelmores’ female partnership level exceeds 40% with the promotion of four new partners

UK law firm Michelmores has announced its latest round of promotions which includes four of its female Senior Associates to Partner level. The promotions bring the Firm’s partnership to 72 and increase its proportion of female partners to over 40%.

Caroline Alexander is a Partner in the Tax, Trusts and Succession team. She specialises in the administration of high net worth and complex estates, many of which have international elements. Caroline also has expertise in Agricultural and Business Property Relief. She is the first Chartered Legal Executive in Michelmores’ 135-year history to become a Partner.

Charlotte Curtis is a Partner in the Property Litigation team and acts for corporate owners and occupiers, high net wealth individuals, developers and estates. She handles contentious property law in both the commercial and residential sectors, acting in an advisory capacity to seek and find the best solutions to resolve disputes at an early stage.

Elizabeth Newson is a Partner in the Transactional Real Estate team, having joined the Firm as a Senior Associate in 2018. She specialises in strategic land and residential development and advises land promoters, regional and national housebuilders, local authorities, land owners and landed estates.

Emily Reeve is a Partner in the Restructuring and Insolvency team. Her practice focusses on contentious insolvency matters and she acts for insolvency practitioners in both a personal and corporate insolvency context. Emily has been recognised as ‘one to watch’ in the directory Legal 500 and in the law firm rankings produced by Chambers and Partners.

The Partner promotions were announced alongside the promotion of three new Senior Associates. Neil Mason in the Construction & Engineering team; Anthony Reeves in the Corporate team (tax) and Erica Williams in the Agriculture team join the Firm’s Senior Associate Academy, an integral part of Michelmores’ commitment to the continued development of its lawyers.

In 2018, Michelmores set a target for its partnership to be at least 30% female and is delighted to announce that, following the latest round of promotions, this figure now sits at over 40%. The firm acknowledges that there is more work to be done to reach gender parity but recognises that this is a great achievement and is testament to the many talented female lawyers across the business. The firm is committed to helping each of its new Partners and Senior Associates to continue to grow exciting and fulfilling careers at Michelmores.
