Law firm Brabners has promoted four of its solicitors to partner.

The appointments are part of the largest round of promotions seen at the Liverpool based firm.

Employment solicitor Kate Venables and housing and regeneration trio Lisa Robotham, Suzanne Gregson and Josephine Morton have been made partners.

A further 24 lawyers across the business have stepped into more senior roles.

Kate Venables trained at Brabners and qualified as an employment lawyer in 2005.

Over a 16-year career she has established herself as an experienced employment tribunal practitioner and is a Legal 500 recommended lawyer.

Josephine Morton, Lisa Robotham and Suzanne Gregson all specialise in advising the social housing sector, with more than 45 years’ experience between them, and their clients range from small housing co-operatives to national registered providers.

Josephine joined Brabners in 2009 following her qualification the previous year. Lisa and Suzanne both joined Brabners in 2017 with the latter having held the role of partner at a number of international law firms. Lisa has previously operated in-house at the Law Society as well as being a partner within regional firms.

Nik White, managing partner at Brabners, said: “The sheer number of people this year who have proved they are capable of taking on more senior roles in the firm is an indicator of where we are as a business and the quality of our people.

“With three years of sustained growth under our belt, the opportunities for career development at Brabners have significantly increased. It’s testament to the talent we have that so many people have been able to take advantage of those opportunities.

“Kate, Lisa, Josephine and Suzanne are indicative of the quality evident across the firm. They have proved time and again their value, both in what they bring to the firm in expertise and their established presences as legal advisors to major businesses and vital third sector organisations across the North West and beyond.”
