Gordon Dadds promotes two new partners


We are delighted to announce the promotions of two senior associates, in our Private Wealth and Corporate teams, to partner.

Anna Coakes specialises in the administration of complex estates and trusts, as well as wills and inheritance planning, often involving multi-jurisdictional elements. Prior to being admitted as a solicitor to the Law Society of England and Wales she qualified and practised as a solicitor in New South Wales.

Alan Barnett has broad corporate and commercial experience in investment, M&A, joint ventures and strategic alliances, and particular expertise in corporate real estate, hotels and leisure. He previously worked at Davenport Lyons and DLA Piper.

Commenting on the promotions, Adrian Biles our Managing Partner said:

“Private Wealth and Corporate are both core areas for us and Anna and Alan have already contributed hugely to the success of these two teams.

“Their breadth of experience has greatly strengthened our offering in these areas, and I am delighted to be welcoming them to the partnership.”
