Manchester and Cheshire-based Beyond Group has announced four significant promotions across its specialist corporate law and family law practices.
The Group’s corporate law practice, Beyond Corporate, promotes solicitor Angeliki Kotsidou to Associate, and the Group’ specialist family and children law practice, McAlister Family Law, promotes Associate Paul Reay to Senior Associate, and solicitors Jessica Horsman and Aaron Williams to Associate.
Angeliki is part of Beyond Corporate’s core corporate transactional team; Paul and Aaron are part of McAlister Family Law’s divorce and finance team, and Jess works within the children team.
Amanda McAlister, Managing Partner of McAlister Family Law, said: “These have been a challenging 12 months, particularly for those people involved in court hearings which have largely been held remotely and which have demanded a lot of family law solicitors. The pandemic has put a lot of strain on families and our workload has been increased significantly. We are absolutely delighted to recognise Paul, Aaron and Jess’ hard work and dedication with these promotions.”
Jim Truscott, who heads Beyond Corporate’s corporate law team, added: “Angeliki has worked extremely hard since qualification, demonstrating tremendous commitment to the corporate team and the wider Beyond Group, and we are extremely pleased to be able to see her progress with us as she moves to the next stage of her career, particularly as the Corporate Law team continues to grow as a result of increasing demand for its services.”
Beyond Group, established a little over three years ago, has gone from strength to strength, with its innovative business structure and outlook. The Group has created an inspiring working environment that is becoming increasingly attractive for client and service-focused teams and individuals who want to work in a positive, engaged and dynamic legal business.
Matt Fleetwood, who heads the Group, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce the promotions of Angeliki, Aaron, Paul and Jess. In what has been a challenging year in many ways, all our teams have worked extremely hard and continue to grow as they face increasing demand for their services.
“These promotions are very well deserved. We are proud to see each of them progress their careers with Beyond Group and we celebrate their commitment and success.”
