Clarion appoints another partner
01 May, 2012
Leeds law firm Clarion has appointed its 18th partner with the promotion of Alice Pratt from senior associate to partner in its growing corporate recovery practice.
Alice joined the firm as a trainee solicitor in 2001, having studied Law at the University of Liverpool followed by the LPC at The College of Law, Chester, where she obtained a distinction. She qualified in September 2003 and was promoted to senior associate at Clarion in April 2008. She is a member of insolvency trade body R3.
During her 11 years’ experience, Alice has dealt with all areas of insolvency work, both contentious and non-contentious. She has acted on many high profile insolvency matters including the administrations of Celtic Crusaders Limited; Wakefield Trinity Rugby Football League Club Limited; Overfinch Bespoke Vehicles Ltd; and the recent administration of architectural practice careyjones chapman.
In her new role, Alice joins fellow partners Roger Hutton and Ryan Millmore to add further strength to the team.
Roger Hutton, senior partner at Clarion, commented: “Alice is one of our rising stars, a highly regarded lawyer who is consistently rated and recommended by clients.
“From an early stage, Alice distinguished herself through her quick grasp of the client’s needs, her technical know-how and her dedication to seeing through a case to conclusion We are delighted to see Alice growing with us and developing her role from her early days as a trainee through to one of our most respected senior associates and now to partnership – a thoroughly deserved recognition of her hard work and commitment to the firm and to our clients.”
Alice comments: “I have been very fortunate to be part of a dynamic, young firm which has given me the opportunity to quickly gain extensive experience of all types of insolvency work, including high profile and complex cases. Being part of a strong team with an open culture that welcomes involvement and input in all aspects of the firm has also been extremely satisfying.”
