International maritime law firm Hill Dickinson has promoted five associate lawyers to senior associate positions in its latest promotions round, which this year saw a record number of people advance across the whole group.
The move reflects a period of intense work and commitment throughout the pandemic and the success of the firm’s people-first strategy, combining lateral recruitment at the most senior levels with clear and achievable promotion paths for everyone from within.
The promotions are spread across shipping and maritime teams in the firm’s UK and international offices and take effect from 1 November 2021.
Promoted to senior associate are Piraeus-based Harris Kouppas and Iris Vamvaka, Hong Kong-based Clement Lai, Kun Ho Park in Singapore, and Yachts team member Amy Cardale, who is based in London.
Head of Marine & Trade, Tony Goldsmith at Hill Dickinson said, “Growing our own talent is central to our company ethos and it is particularly rewarding to see so many of our next-generation lawyers progressing through the ranks.”
