On the implementation of the Framework, Managing Partner Jan Matthews comments:

“We have seen many changes to Reeds over the last year, all designed to renew our commitment to our staff and our clients. The Reeds Career Progression Framework is one such change, giving everyone within Reeds a clear pathway to progress through the business. I look forward to watching everyone’s journey through the Framework over the coming years.

I congratulate all our new Senior Associates and Associates; each individual has demonstrated their commitment to our clients and to each other and have worked hard to achieve their position within Reeds. Well done to all.

I offer a warm welcome to Beth, Scott, and Nathan to the Partnership, which now brings the total number of Partners within Reeds to 15.

Their elevation is richly deserved following their leadership in the creation and development of their respective teams: Manchester Complex Crime, Private Client, and Fare Evasion. Nathan and Scott have also together formed, and lead, the Reeds Business Development Unit, which is spearheading our expansion into new areas of work. We are especially proud to see another former Reeds trainee (Scott Primmer) promoted to Partnership.

We continue to build our business with outstanding individuals at every level and are never happier than when we can recognise their accomplishments with both career and financial progression.”
