The partnership team at Bennett Griffin are excited to announce the promotion of one of their number to managing partner as of 1 July 2017.

The promotion follows the stepping down of previous managing partner, Stephen Hollamby who has managed the firm for years and most recently through its move from Warwick Street to Liverpool Gardens.

Stephen will still be a partner at the firm and help clients with any childcare proceedings and other litigious matters.

The partner succeeding Stephen is Kate Hallin who trained with the firm initially in 2004 before going to gain experience elsewhere, returning to Bennett Griffin in 2015 to head up the litigation team.

Stephen Hollamby said: ’It is an exciting time for the firm, with our recent office move and some important strategic appointments in the last year or two I feel happy handing over the reins to Kate. Kate knows the firm well having trained with us initially; she has the drive and enthusiasm to take us to the next stage.’

Kate is excited by the opportunity and is looking forward to driving the firm forwards whilst continuing to look after her team and clients.
