Legal and Finance: Employment Department at DLA Has Work for Two More; Appointments Round-Up


One of the largest employment law departments in the Midlands has just expanded again.

The Birmingham office of DLA has recruited two more employment lawyers, taking its total legal team to 22.

Lisa Norman has arrived from the Engineering Employers' Federation (EEF) in Birmingham.

She trained with Black Country-based Challinors Lyon Clark before moving to Shakespeares in Birmingham to specialise in employment law.

She joined EEF as an employment lawyer in 1999 and while there also acted in a human resources advisory capacity and dealt with trade union negotiations. Her main area of interest is advocacy.

Maria Barnett lives in the centre of Birmingham and has joined DLA from Martineau Johnson.

She trained at Mills & Reeve in Birmingham, specialising in advising healthcare clients and subsequently worked at Martineau Johnson working for clients in the public and private sector including higher and further education clients. She is interested in all areas of employment law, including advocacy, and training and development.

Alan Jones, partner in charge of DLA's employment division in Birmingham, said: 'The recruitment of Lisa and Maria is central to the continuing growth of our employment law practice in the Midlands, and we are delighted to welcome them into what is a growing and talented team.'

Mills & Reeve is expanding its Birmingham company commercial team with the appointment of Peter Manford who joins as a partner.

Mr Manford was previously the lead partner in Evershed's commercial services department in Birmingham.

His appointment follows the launch of Mills & Reeve's company commercial group in Birmingham in January when Tim Winn joined the firm from Garretts and subsequently, Gary Smith arrived from Wragge & Co.

The team will service the Midlands market and link up with Mills & Reeve's established corporate practice in Cambridge and Norwich.

Mr Manford has a particular focus on transport and logistics including rail, PFI, technology and franchising with specific expertise in the IT and retail sectors. He holds an MBA from the Insead Business School and speaks fluent French and German.

He said: 'I am delighted to be joining Mills & Reeve. I admire the innovative culture of the partnership and I am looking forward to the opportunity to help build a strong commercial team in the Midlands.'

Guy Hinchley, Birmingham managing partner, said: 'Peter's appointment is the latest example of the Birmingham office expanding both its commercial offering and client base across the West Midlands. Peter will bring specialist expertise to an already skilled and talented team.'

Accountants Deloitte & Touche have promoted five of their Birmingham staff to director level.

After 15 years with Deloitte, Julia Bevan has been promoted within the firm's business consulting practice.
