Jodie Sinclair, who became Bevan Brittan’s new Senior Partner on 1 May, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to promote so many colleagues again this year after another successful year for our business – all 15 thoroughly deserve this recognition for the fantastic contributions they make every day to our firm and our clients.
“I joined Bevan Brittan as an assistant 21 years ago, so have first-hand experience of how our culture and approach enables people to achieve their potential on merit, regardless of their background. With Susan’s promotion to Partner, this now means that 43% of our Partners are female.
“We intend to continue to attract and retain a diverse workforce who have so much to offer our clients in terms of their sector knowledge and experience, technical ability and passion for what they do.”
The firm has also made changes to its senior leadership team.

The firm has also seen seven new partners join in little more than 12 months.
