DMH Stallard has confirmed four new partners after a round of senior associate promotions.

The new partners are Josie Appleyard, a corporate and commercial lawyer, who joined DMH Stallard in 2020 and is based in Guildford; Malky Chaloner, who is also a Chartered Tax Advisor, and works in the private client department in London; Michael Daniels, a real estate specialist in the Guildford office; and Cathryn Culverhouse, also in Guildford, who is part of the dispute resolution team.

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner at DMH Stallard, said:

“These appointments recognise the hard work, expertise and commitment to the firm shown by Josie, Malky, Michael and Cathryn.

I’m incredibly proud of them and delighted to be making them partners.”

In addition to the partner announcements, a round of career development reviews has also seen three promotions from solicitor to associate and four moves from associate to senior associate. Heather Lee, Romy Cross and Beatrice Bass have become associates and Callum Kirk, Julia Macey, Lucie Thomas and Georgina Thomas are now senior associates.

Richard added:

“We make no secret of our policy of actively searching for and recruiting the best legal talent and giving them the support that means we retain them for the long term.

I’m as determined as ever to build on the success that comes from having the best people advising our clients and rewarding them accordingly.”
