Law firm celebrates new corporate hire alongside promotions

18th November 2022

HCR Hewitsons’ growth continues – as new partner David Davies joins and expands the corporate team, building on the recognised capabilities of the firm’s business services practice in the region. David, a former City lawyer with extensive experience in Europe, says: “HCR’s work with clients reflects the approach it takes in business – pragmatic and sensible while being creative and ambitious. I look forward to contributing towards the development of what is already a leading practice in the Central England region and beyond.” David’s European connections widen the firm’s offering and bring fresh expertise to the corporate arena.

This coincides with a new partner appointment, with Stephanie Dennis advancing in the Agriculture and Rural Affairs team, and two new legal directors, Lynne Adams in Employment and Immigration, following the firm’s latest round of promotions.

The growth is not just in numbers and lawyer development, but in the firm’s specialist service capabilities with Private Client solicitor Tonina Ashby’s qualifying as a Notary Public – one of only around 770 in England and Wales.

Joint Head of Office Dominic Hopkins said: “This is an exciting time. As we open our new Central England Office on the Waterside Campus site in Northampton, on 28 November, we’re thrilled to welcome David to the team – his corporate deal experience and extensive background in Europe will be a great asset to us. I’d also like to congratulate Stephanie, Lynne, Michael and Tonina on their successes – Wonderful news!”
