DAC Beachcroft Appoints New Leeds Office Head
Published 8 December 2015
International law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed Michael Peeters as its new Regional Senior Partner (RSP) for Leeds.
Michael takes over in the role from predecessor, Virginia Clegg, who became DAC Beachcroft's Senior Partner on 1 November 2015.
An IT and telecoms specialist, Michael heads up DAC Beachcroft's Northern Technology Law team. He joined the firm in 2011 from Pinsent Masons and has spent most of his career, which spans more than 20 years, working in the Leeds commercial market.
Commenting on his appointment, Michael said: "I feel privileged to be nominated as the next RSP for DAC Beachcroft in Leeds. Our people here do brilliant work and key to my role will be raising the profile of our business in this region to ensure the office gets the recognition it deserves in what remains a fast-evolving Yorkshire legal market. This will build on Virginia's great work, including our move earlier this year to prestigious new offices at St Paul's House."
"I am also keen to see all our Northern offices thrive in the coming years and will make a point of working closely with my counterparts in Manchester and Newcastle to optimise our combined offerings."
DAC Beachcroft Senior Partner, Virginia Clegg, said: "Michael will be an excellent ambassador for our firm in Leeds. With the support of the other local partners on key initiatives, I am entirely confident Michael will promote the firm and drive growth across the Northern regions."
