Update from the Darwin Gray Team

Darwin Gray’s Birthday - we started off the spring season with a big celebration.  On 1 March, we celebrated our 12th year!  Darwin Gray has grown from strength to strength and we would like to send a big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way.

CEO SleepOut – you may remember from our last newsletter update that Damian Philips took part in the CEOSleepOut campaign on 27 March.  The event was a great success and raised around £72,000 for the charity.  More details and photos from the event can be found using this link http://ceosleepoutuk.com/index.html.

Sporting News - Fiona Sinclair, our HR Consultant, has enjoyed some recent success with her badminton team. Fiona captains the Ladies team at Cardiff Badminton Club and they won their division this season, meaning that they will now move up to Ladies Division 1. Congratulations to them and we wish Fiona and her team all the best with the new season!

Owen John, a solicitor in our employment team, has recently signed up for the Dublin Marathon in October and we wish him all the best with his preparation.

Promotions - Our newly qualified solicitor in the litigation team, Kate Andrews, was elected Secretary of the South Wales Branch of the Association of Women in Property. Kate and other colleagues from the firm regularly attend events with Women in Property and Darwin Gray were delighted to recently sponsor one recent event – an informal drinks reception at Glassworks in Cardiff, which was a great success.  

We are also very pleased to announce a number of promotions that have recently been made across the firm:

Catherine Burke (Commercial Property) has been promoted to Senior
Owen John (Employment) has been promoted to Associate
Tegen Quinn (Commercial Dispute Resolution) has been promoted to Associate

The promotions are a sign of the hard work and dedication that they have all shown to their teams and to the firm over the past years and are all very well deserved.
