Beyond Law Group announces key promotions following its strongest year of growth

Beyond Law Group continues to support its talent at all levels as it announces its 2023 promotions list


North-West based legal Group, Beyond Law Group, has announced four senior promotions across its specialist law practices and its central services team, in addition to a bumper number of junior promotions. The promotions come following the most successful year to date for Beyond Law Group and its specialist practices: Beyond Corporate, McAlister Family Law and Beyond Conveyancing.


It is a key part of the Group’s ethos and strategy to recognise and reward talent and hard work across all teams and at all levels – both across its legal teams and within its central services team which includes Finance, IT, HR and Marketing.


Beyond Law Group’s 2023 promotions list sees the promotion of specialist children lawyer, Jessica Horsman and Divorce and Finance expert, Brigid O’Malley to Senior Associate. Both Jessica and Brigid are an integral part of the Group’s specialist family and children practice, McAlister Family Law.


Within the Group’s central services team, IT Manager, Scott O’Brien, has been promoted to IT Director and its Billing and Credit control Manager, Clint Nichols, has been promoted to Costs Lawyer.


The promotions also follow the appointment of James Corlett earlier this year as Beyond Corporate’s new managing partner; a move that is already enabling the management team at Beyond Corporate to further develop as the practices grow and enable the Group’s founder Matt Fleetwood to focus on the wider Group strategy and revenue growth.



The Group is also keen to facilitate new pathways to careers in law and break down the barriers to entry, and for this reason has promoted three of its paralegals to Senior Paralegal across the Group’s three specialist practices. In addition, the Group sponsors two legal apprentices and four trainee solicitors, sending a clear message that it is focussed on career development and creating a strong, supportive and nurturing environment for its people.

Beyond Law Group has gone from strength to strength, with its innovative business structure and modern people focussed outlook. The Group has created an inspiring working environment that is becoming increasingly attractive for client and service-focused teams and individuals who want to work in and with a positive, engaged, and dynamic legal business.

Amanda McAlister, Managing Partner of McAlister Family Law, commented: “Jessica and Brigid are an absolute delight to work with and their promotions are testament to their development within McAlister Family Law and the wider Group. Their promotions also enable us to plan for the future and shape the career development of our team. It is thoroughly deserved and reflects our commitment to develop our people and provide each and every person with a clear career path.”

Matt Fleetwood, Chief Executive and Founder of Beyond Law Group, said: “We are delighted to announce the promotions of Jessica, Brigid, Scott and Clint. We are proud to see each of them progress their careers with the Group and we celebrate their commitment and success. The appointment of James Corlett, one of the youngest managing partners in the North West as Beyond Corporate’s head, has also given us the opportunity to develop that practice further by strengthening its management team appropriately as it continues its growth curve.

Development and career progression for our people is key to our strategy across the Group. Whether our people began their careers with us or joined at a more advanced level, we are committed to training and developing our talent and moving them forward in their careers as quickly as they develop.

The great service that we can provide to our clients is only possible due to the hard-work, talent and personality of the people we have within the Group. They are together creating their own cohesive culture within the Group and this is becoming even more critical as we embark on our next phase of strategic growth.”
