“Employment law remains an important string to our bow. Additionally, we are seeing an increasing number of regulated clients need support on challenging regulatory issues and investigations. Andrea’s promotion reflects on the scope and quality of her work for a range of clients and helps us build out the employment practice. The expansion in these practices is driven by client demand, and we anticipate further hires in due course. We are delighted to welcome Andrea to the partnership.”
