DAC Beachcroft announces three new partners
The newly formed DAC Beachcroft today announced two internal partner promotions and a lateral hire, bringing total partner numbers to 234.
The partner joining the firm is Michael Peeters, who will be heading up a northern technology law team to offer clients outsourcing, information technology and telecoms project support. Michael was previously Head of the Regional ICT Projects team at Pinsent Masons LLP in Leeds.
The partner promotions are Claire Reynolds in Employment and Pensions and Julitta Yates in Real Estate.
Simon Hodson, Senior Partner commented “Michael’s appointment is key for a number of sectors within the firm including financial institutions, health and public sector and provides added weight and depth to our national technology skills offering. We now have one of the largest groups of technology lawyers in the UK with a growing brand to match that capability. Michael also has considerable international experience.
“Once again we have broken with tradition and made two partners up outside of the spring round in order to strengthen some key teams. With the merger we now have a leading London Real Estate practice and Julitta’s promotion will boost our capabilities in the South West. Claire Reynolds, who is currently based in Leeds will be working across our northern offices, delivering employment services, primarily to our growing number of large health clients.”
