Leading law firm names new partners as it targets further growth

Ben Mason, Chris Mitchell, and Simon Mawdsley have all taken up Partner roles at the Legal-500 listed law firm.

North West-based law firm Aaron & Partners has announced a series of promotions in several of its specialist departments.

Aarons, which has offices in Chester, Shrewsbury and Manchester has announced seven promotions from within the firm, including three new Partners, a Senior Associate, and three Associate Solicitors.

Ben Mason, who is based in the firm’s Shrewsbury office and advises both commercial and individual clients, has become a Partner in the firm’s growing Employment team.

Having spent over 12 years specialising in insolvency, Chris Mitchell has been promoted to Partner in the Dispute Resolution & Insolvency Team. His wide-ranging experience includes appearances in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

Simon Mawdsley, who is already a recommended lawyer in the Legal 500, has also been promoted, becoming Partner in the Family Team after spending the past decade specialising in the financial aspects of divorce.

The firm’s renowned Real Estate team has seen three promotions, with Joseph Fletcher-Hunt becoming a Senior Associate and colleagues Steph King and Laura Gandy promoted to Associate Solicitors.

Jennifer Harrison has also been made an Associate Solicitor within Aaron & Partners’ Corporate and Commercial team, advising on a wide variety of corporate matters including company acquisitions.

Nick Clarke, Senior Partner at Aaron & Partners, said: “I’m really pleased to welcome Ben, Chris and Simon as Partners. They’ve all made significant contributions to our excellent performance in recent years and their promotions are recognition of their hard work and the high standard of service they deliver to our clients.

“This year has obviously been challenging for everyone and it has given me great pleasure to see the resilience and flexibility that the team have shown. Therefore, more than ever it has been important for us to recognise excellent performance through promotions.

“We’ve always aimed to create an environment where our people can develop and progress with us, so it’s incredibly satisfying to see so many people moving forward with their careers through these promotions.”
