National law firm Geldards LLP has announced that four of its lawyers, Harriet Morgan, Claire Dean, Chris Hawrylak and Simon Davers, have been promoted to become part of the firm’s partnership.

Harriet, Claire, Chris and Simon are from across the firm’s national offices and began their new roles in September 2018, bringing the total number of partners at the firm to 61.

Harriet Morgan will also become Head of Charity Law. Based at the firm’s Cardiff office, Harriet trained and qualified as a solicitor at Geldards before specialising in charity and commercial property.

Claire Dean is part of Geldards’ family law team in the Midlands. As well as being a leading family lawyer, Claire also recently became a Law Society accredited family mediator.

Chris Hawrylak is a specialist construction lawyer based at the firm’s Derby office and manages the Infrastructure and Construction team in the Midlands. Due to his expertise and work on many high-profile, complex cases, he is considered the ‘go-to’ construction specialist for several of the region’s largest developers and contractors.

Simon Davers is an experienced corporate lawyer with over 10 years experience in mergers and acquisitions along with complex restructurings.

Jeff Pearson, Chief Executive, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Harriet, Claire, Chris and Simon to the partnership at Geldards and would like to congratulate them all on these well-deserved promotions.

 

“They are very experienced lawyers with strong expertise in each of their areas of law and their knowledge and skills are invaluable to the team. 2017/18 was an exceptional year for the firm and, with the new additions, the partners are looking forward to continuing this success into the new financial year.”
