Changes afoot in HLK

Being the best firm that we can be is only achievable when everyone in every role feels valued, integrated and motivated to perform at their highest possible level. For HLK, this is a business imperative. We are proud to announce HLK’s 2022 promotions, which recognise the exceptional dedication of those at HLK.

I’m delighted that so many of our brilliant people are progressing in their careers and that we are able to announce a raft of promotions.” Graham Lambert, Chief Executive

Stuart Clarkson, Sanjeet Plaha, Greg Sharp, and Greg Ward have all been promoted to Partner. Each of these dynamic individuals has made an outstanding contribution to the firm and our clients through their drive, positivity and wealth of experience.

Andrew Rudhall, a patent attorney in the Tech team since joining the firm in 2019, has been promoted to Senior Associate, and Luke Jones, who become a dual-qualified patent attorney in late 2021, and Eamon Robinson, have seen their hard work rewarded through promotion to Associate level.

Joanne Donaldson joined HLK in 2006 and progressed through the business to become Formalities Manager in the Tech team. Jo now embarks on the next exciting stage of her career as Head of Operations. And we are also pleased to announce the promotion of Kayleigh Doherty to be Renewals Manager in our HL Renewals LLP business unit.

Special mention goes to Laura Compton, Chloe Farrar and Robyn Hardisty who recently qualified as UK and European patent attorneys. Antonia Dembek, Romy Fowler, Natalie Fry and James Payne each completed CIPA’s Introductory Patent Administrators’ Course and qualified as Patent Administrators.

Huge congratulations to all of you, thank you for your hard work and dedication, and we look forward to the next stages of your careers!
