National law firm Weightmans has announced the promotion of its third non-lawyer to Partner as it welcomes six to fixed share partnership.

Kevin Brown, Weightmans’ Head of Information Management and Technology, has led the firm's IT and data teams at a strategic and operational level for almost eight years. He joins Sarah-Jane Howitt and Sam Airey, non-lawyers who were promoted to partner at Weightmans in 2014 and 2015.

The new Partners span five Weightmans offices across the UK and are now in post as of 1 May, as the firm reflects on its first year of its new structure and the introduction of an ambitious strategic review in 2017.

Weightmans’ Managing Partner John Schorah said:

“Over the last twelve months we have worked hard to implement our vision for the future of Weightmans, including investing heavily in our people and their development.
“The advancement of the firm and its embrace of technology go hand in hand. As Head of Information Management, Kevin sits on the firm’s Operations Board and is responsible for advising the business on technology delivery and future developments. Having this agenda represented even further at partnership level is a real demonstration of both our commitment to innovation, and understanding of how technology plays an integral part in that vision for the future.
“The firm prides itself on its focus on the client and delivering great service – I have no doubt that all of our new partners will continue to use their experience, work ethic and commercial mindset to achieve the best results for our clients. I offer them my warmest congratulations and look forward to working with them in the next stages of their careers.”
