Actons has announced the promotion of its first non-lawyer as a Director of the firm.
Practice Manager Matt Coleman has taken on the role of Chief Operations Officer. With over eighteen years’ experience in the legal sector, Matt joined the firm in 2014 initially as the firm’s Marketing & Business Development Manager before becoming Practice Manager in August 2020.
Matt becomes the first non-lawyer to become a Director, a move that was enabled by the firm’s conversion to an ABS (alternative business structure) in 2019.
Simon Dakin, Chairman of Actons, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Matt as a Director of the firm. Since switching from Marketing & Business Development Manager to Practice Manager during the COVID lockdown, Matt has shown great enthusiasm and aptitude in developing additional law firm management skills. I am confident that he will continue his development and make a success of this opportunity. Matt will be our first non-lawyer Director, which is a great achievement, and he will play a key role in our future success.”
“The next twelve months are lining up to be an exciting period for the firm, as we welcome more great people to join our team and take forward some other key projects.”
