Cheshire law firm SAS Daniels is strengthening its employment law and HR team with a partner promotion and a senior appointment to the firm.
The law firm has promoted Katie Hodson to partner after 17 years with SAS Daniels, and having recently been ranked a Rising Star in the 2021 Legal 500 Directory. As a result of the many challenges for businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, Katie has been sharing her expertise as part of the firm’s series of SAS Live employment law webinars to guide the region’s businesses, which have covered topics including redundancy and changing employment contracts.
Jeremy Orrell, Chief Executive Officer at SAS Daniels, said:
Katie is one of our longest serving colleagues and has built up a raft of experience over the years. Katie stepped up in difficult circumstances during lockdown to manage our Employment team. It is fantastic to be able to reward her hard work and dedication with this well-deserved promotion.”
The team has been further boosted with the addition of Jennifer Platt as Senior Associate in the Employment team. Jennifer qualified in 2006 and has vast experience working in private practices and in-house roles. She will be based at the Stockport office. Jeremy added:
“I’m also delighted to have recruited a Senior Associate to the team. Our clients will benefit from Jennifer’s wide range of experience including a particular expertise in handling employment tribunal claims.”
A full-service law firm, SAS Daniels’ specialisms include corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, employment law and HR, commercial property, residential property, wills, trusts and probate, and family law and has offices in Chester, Congleton, Macclesfield and Stockport.
