Leading law firm Blake Morgan has announced the promotions of Mark Jones and Dan Geddes to partner.

Working across London and the Thames Valley, Mark Jones (below) is part of Blake Morgan’s commercial litigation team, specialising in the defence of white-collar crime and investigations. He represents both individuals and corporates across the full range of criminal and regulatory investigations and prosecutions. He joined the firm in 2018 and has also been recognised by Legal 500.

Dan Geddes (below) first joined the commercial litigation team at Blake Morgan in 2007. Dan’s specialist knowledge in company law, insolvency, insurance, debt recovery and contract law allows him to work across a wide variety of disputes and has led to a varied client base ranging from international insurance companies to local businesses and individuals throughout the South Coast and Wales.

Mike Wilson, managing partner, said: “These promotions are both incredibly well-deserved and we’re thrilled to be making Mark and Dan partners at the firm. They are both highly skilled lawyers who have been instrumental in building our commercial litigation practice and expertise, and the firm’s growth more widely.

“I’d like to extend my warmest congratulations to both Mark and Dan, and am looking forward to continuing to work with them in their new roles.”
