Clarke Willmott announces promotions for Birmingham office

National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has announced its 2021 promotions list which includes two Birmingham-based lawyers.

Promoted to partner is Mark Scotney, a solicitor in the construction team who specialises in resolving construction and engineering disputes. Acting on behalf of all parties in the construction industry supply chain, Mark is an accredited mediator.

Promoted to senior associate is family law solicitor Caroline Young. Caroline specialises in resolving issues arising from relationship breakdown, divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships.

Across the firm’s seven regional offices three lawyers were promoted to partner, seven to senior associate and 11 to associate.

Clarke Willmott CEO, Stephen Rosser, said: “This year’s internal promotions process was undertaken during unprecedented times and during discussions with candidates it was evident how well individuals and teams have been adapting to our new ways of working. It really has been a pleasure to see so many excellent examples of how those being promoted have stepped up in readiness for their new roles.

“Developing our people is absolutely fundamental to us as a business and the great service that we can provide to our clients is only possible due to the great people we have within the firm. This has become even more critical as we embrace the flexible ways of working and those promoted will assume greater responsibilities and in many cases leadership roles and the skills they have demonstrated will be vital as we become accustomed to a new normal.”

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
