New Regional Senior Partner At DAC Beachcroft Manchester
Published 7 January 2014
The Manchester office of international law firm DAC Beachcroft appointed a new Regional Senior Partner (RSP) earlier this month.
Ian McConkey took over the reins from Robert Moss who has served as RSP for more than six years. During this time, Robert was actively involved in promoting the firm in the local community as the leader of the local corporate social responsibility team. He will now focus on his work as a Partner in the Real Estate team.
Commenting on the handover, Robert said: "The last six years have seen plenty of change in what have been fairly turbulent circumstances for the economy, the Manchester community and the legal profession. Personal highlights for me during this time include celebrating the firm's 250th anniversary and the move to our office in Spinningfields, which has provided us with the environment to enhance our offering – especially within the Health sector.
"Now we have a team of 25 lawyers dedicated to health clients. We have also seen a huge uptake from clients to our insurance fraud investigation service where the team now comprises 30 lawyers. It is excellent news that Ian will be the new RSP in Manchester and I have every confidence that he will make a great leader."
Ian, a Partner in Professional & Commercial Risk, said: "I am delighted to take on the role of RSP and to pick up where Robert has left off. I am keen to continue to lead the development of the office by deepening our relations with the firm's outstanding clients, both nationally and internationally, and to further grow the health and commercial sectors.
"DAC Beachcroft Manchester will keep building its links with the business and professional community in the North West, and to be an integral part of the community."
