National commercial law firm Beachcroft has announced the promotion of two new partners in its Birmingham office.

Liz Duley in the injury risk group and Nick Basi from the property risk solutions team became partners this week, taking the total number of partners in the Birmingham office to 11.

Beachcroft has appointed seven new partners nationally, which will take its total number of partners to 151.

Simon Hodson, senior partner said: “These promotions reflect our planned programme of targeted growth in our key business areas. During the last year we have seen expansions in our Northern Health practice with the team that we brought over from Halliwells.

“We have expanded our London Financial Institutions practice through the acquisition of insurance litigation specialist firm Williams Holden Cooklin Gibbons LLP (WHCG).

“Against this background of growth through acquisition it is very rewarding to be able to promote home-grown talent and I’m pleased to say that three of the seven new partners trained with the firm.”
