SOUTH coast law firm Blake Morgan have promoted 23 solicitors in its Portsmouth and Southampton offices.

The firm says these promotions, from 58 announced by the wider firm, highlight Blake Morgan’s growth and the strengthening of their teams following on from the merger of Blake Lapthorn and Morgan Cole earlier this year.

A total of 20 promotions are for staff at Blake Morgan’s Southampton office at New Kings Court.

In Blake Morgan’s Portsmouth office there are promotions for commercial recoveries solicitors Teresa Hardingham and Katy Miles and wills and tax solicitor Celine Lecomte, who all become associates.

Martin Hirst, Blake Morgan regional senior partner for the south coast, said: ‘These promotions are richly-deserved and serve to illustrate the strength and depth of the high quality teams we have at Blake Morgan and the focus that we place on the people who make our firm.

‘We have a track record of developing talent within the firm.’
