City law firm Fox Williams has today announced three promotions which take effect from 1 May 2022. Evie Meleagros and Sarah Redmond are promoted to partner, and Rebecca Richardson is promoted to legal director.
The promotions follow continued growth at the 39-partner and 111 staff firm.
Fox Williams senior partner Paul Osborne said: “The firm is enormously proud to announce the promotions of Evie, Sarah, and Rebecca. They are inspirational women who have built their careers at Fox Williams and each one of them is a role model for those embarking on their own journeys with us.”
Evie is promoted to partner and Rebecca to legal director in Fox Williams’ highly regarded dispute resolution practice. A commercial litigator, Evie focuses on civil fraud with a strong track record in financial services. Rebecca is a commercial litigator acting on civil fraud, partnership and employment disputes, and financial services litigation. Both advise on disputes with an international dimension.
Sarah joins the partnership in the firm’s intellectual property team, described by World Trademark Review as a “trade mark powerhouse”. Sarah’s work with international trade mark owners is a valued and increasingly important contribution to our intellectual property practice and reflects the demands of Fox Williams’ expanding international clients and brand owners.
Paul Osborne adds: “Our clients tell us that they value the responsiveness and commerciality of the Fox Williams approach, demonstrated so ably by Evie, Sarah and Rebecca. Our partners and those in the earlier stages of their careers find it enormously rewarding to see the firm develop and promote such high calibre lawyers from within. I would like to extend the firm’s congratulation to them all.”
