3rd July 2020, 10:52 am

International law firm Trowers & Hamlins has promoted four from the Manchester office real estate team to partnership. They are part of the total 10 promoted across a selection of the firm’s other offices in London, Exeter and Abu Dhabi.

The new Manchester partners are:

Anna Metham – Real Estate, Investment and Development

Joanne Judge – Real Estate, Real Estate Finance – Security (REFS)

Ru Anwar – Real Estate, Investment and Development

Darren Ashworth – Real Estate, Investment and Development


The new partners are also the first to benefit from the Pathways to Partnership programme. The programme required candidates to work on an individual personal business plan forming a major part of the partnership selection process and driving performance over the year ahead. The programme included many elements from law firm finance and business planning, to client care and people management and leadership.

The expansion of the Manchester real estate team demonstrates the firm’s key focus for the business with over 60% of lawyers advising across investment, development, construction, asset management, planning, environment and dispute resolution. The firm was recently recognised as the No.1 law firm globally for real estate by The Lawyer 2020.

Partner and head of the Manchester office, Suzanne Benson, commented:

“The Covid-19 pandemic has posed many challenges, but I am delighted that during this difficult time our Manchester office has continued to grow. At the start of the lockdown we welcomed partner Danielle Ingham to our employment and pension’s team and now I am thrilled that four from our real estate team have been promoted to the partnership. This highlights the wide array of talent that we have here in Manchester and also emphasises our commitment to providing our clients with exceptional legal acumen..”

Trowers has had an office in Manchester for over 40 years and moved to 55 Princess Street in 2015.
