Moray & Agnew’s Newcastle office is proud to announce the promotion of Holly Ulmer to Partner in its Insurance group, effective from 1 July 2019. Holly specialises in workers compensation and acts on instructions from workers compensation scheme agents for employers.

Moray & Agnew doesn’t set out to achieve a particular gender mix in its partners and staff, instead choosing and retaining the most talented and suitable people for its team. Holly’s promotion to Partner means that now 47% of the Newcastle partnership is female.

It’s reflective of the firm’s commitment to the advancement of women in the legal industry that all of its senior promotions in Newcastle over the last three years and more than 80% of senior promotions in the last six years are female.

Moray & Agnew’s Newcastle Managing Partner Sean O’Sullivan said, "Since joining our Newcastle team in 2015, Holly has consistently demonstrated to our clients and colleagues that she’s a highly skilled insurance lawyer. Celebrating Holly’s well-earned promotion is a fantastic start to the new financial year.”

Over 100 talented people work in Moray & Agnew’s Newcastle office providing clients with high quality insurance, commercial and employment legal advice.

Sean O’Sullivan has previously been awarded individual Hunter Diversity Champion at the Hunter Diversity Awards, an initiative of the Equal Futures Project.
