Ward Hadaway announces promotions

Katy Milner, a member of the firm’s public sector real estate team, has been made director amid a raft of elevations at the Newcastle office.

Based on the Quayside, the Newcastle office sees eight promotions in all, including commercial litigation lawyer Rob Eldon becoming partner.

Promotions in Ward Hadaway’s Quayside base account for 44% of the firm’s overall promotions this year, mirroring its continued growth in the North East. This aligns with expansion plans announced recently by managing partner Steven Petrie to achieve turnover of £75m by 2029.

Alongside the partner and director-level promotions, four were made at associate level with two becoming managing associates.

Petrie said: “These promotions are a testament to our strategic growth and investment in our people. Each of our offices – Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle – have consistently demonstrated excellence and a commitment to our clients that is truly commendable.”

Milner is described as a key member of Ward Hadaway’s public sector real estate team specialising in the property aspects of public sector projects and education.

Carolyn Akerman and Liam Stubbs are now managing associates within the real estate and corporate teams. Jamie Guy, Vikki Alexander, Louise Spedding and Daniyal Malik have been promoted to associates within their respective fields of corporate, plot sales, real estate and commercial litigation.
