Speechly Bircham has announced two partner promotions in its private wealth team.
The firm has appointed James Freeman (pictured) as Head of the firm's Family team following the recent departure of Christopher Butler. James has been a core member of the Family team since 2006, and advises on all issues arising from relationship breakdown, especially those involving complex financial cases, tax efficient financial settlements or cohabitation law.
Dominic Lawrance has been promoted to partner, effective 1 May 2012. Dominic is an experienced tax and trusts practitioner, and has a growing portfolio of wealthy individual clients and trustee clients who value his tax, trusts and estate planning expertise.
Speechlys' Managing Partner, Michael Lingens says, "While the firm continues to attract high quality partners from elsewhere, we are proud to welcome Dominic to the partnership and to congratulate James on his promotion".
