Anthony Gold is delighted to announce that three of its Senior Associates have accepted offers to become new Partners in the firm. Sam David, Eleanor Solomon and Emma Tante all become Partners with immediate effect.
Sam David is a new partner in Injury & Medical Claims
Sam works in the Injury & Medical Claims team, supporting individuals whose lives have been turned upside down as a result of suffering catastrophic personal injuries through accidents or clinical negligence. He joined Anthony Gold in August 2014 as a paralegal, qualifying in 2016. He has since dedicated his career mainly to personal injury work, becoming a Senior Associate in November 2020.
Working closely with Jenny Kennedy, one of the UK’s most highly regarded personal injury lawyers, his cases range from catastrophic personal injury to road traffic collision cases and brain and spinal cord injury. He has specialist knowledge of foreign national claims, helping people who have been injured whilst working or holidaying in the UK, as well as British Nationals injured abroad.
Eleanor Solomon is a new partner in Housing
Eleanor becomes a Partner in the Housing team, specialising in housing and property disputes. She advises tenants and leaseholders on forcing landlords to comply with their legal obligations, acting for clients in claims brought against their housing associations and local authorities, with particular strength in claims relating to building safety and disrepair, unlawful eviction and nuisance matters.
She also trained at Anthony Gold and qualified in 2016, became a Senior Associate in 2020 and is mentioned as an ‘Associate to Watch’ in the current Chambers & Partners 2022.
Emma Tante is a new partner in Court of Protection
Emma becomes a Partner in the Court of Protection team, supporting individuals with the management of their Property and Affairs where they have been deemed to lack capacity as a result of life changing injuries. She works closely with leading Personal Injury teams to support individuals, both in the UK and internationally, throughout the litigation process and subsequently post settlement with the management of multi-million pound compensation awards.
Emma joined Anthony Gold in 2013, also trained at the firm and qualified in 2015. She was a named Lawyer in the Legal 500 just 1-year PQE and has continued to receive recognition in the legal directories since. She became a Senior Associate at the firm in 2018, just 3 years PQE.
The move sees the firm building on its current strengths in Personal Injury, Housing and Court of Protection. The firm has top tier rankings in Chambers and Legal 500 for Personal Injury and Social Housing, and strong rankings in both for Court of Protection.
Managing Partner, David Marshall, said: “I am delighted that all three individuals have accepted offers to become Partners. This is part of a concerted effort to continue to build our Personal Injury, Housing and Court of Protection offerings and to ensure the firm has a succession plan in place for its future growth.”
