DAC Beachcroft Unveils New Regional Leadership Teams
Published 13 April 2016
International law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed two new Regional Senior Partners (RSPs) in Bristol and London and reappointed two more with effect from 1 May 2016.
Real Estate Partner Nick Knapman succeeds previous incumbent Tony Cherry in Bristol. In the firm's London Fetter Lane office, Corporate Partner Matthew Darling takes over in the role from Laurence Markham after an election process.
Nick started his career with the firm in Bristol as a trainee and now heads up the Shopping Centre practice, part of DAC Beachcroft's national Real Estate team. Matthew is a corporate finance lawyer specialising in advising technology clients on mergers and acquisitions and transactions on AIM. He has been with the firm since 1995.
In addition, incumbents David Weatherburn and Nick Young will begin their second terms as Regional Senior Partners for DAC Beachcroft in Newcastle and London Minster Court respectively, continuing to build on their very successful tenures.
All four RSPs – in common with their counterparts in Birmingham, Dublin, Leeds, Manchester, Newport, Scotland and Winchester - will be responsible for supporting colleagues, shaping the working environment and for the continued and sustainable development of the firm in the locations within which it works.
Announcing the appointments, DAC Beachcroft Senior Partner, Virginia Clegg, said: "I am looking forward to welcoming Nick and Matthew as part of the RSP leadership team, which is absolutely key to the long-term success of the firm.
"I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you, on behalf of the partnership, to outgoing Regional Senior Partners, Tony Cherry and Laurence Markham, for their contribution, commitment and the very positive impact they have each made in the development of their respective offices."
