Managing Partner, Tony Britten-Jones commented:

“Piper Alderman is continuously looking for opportunities to develop and promote our internal talent. Our partner appointments and promotions reflect the firm’s growth strategy and a healthy balance between external lateral recruitment and the ‘home grown’ development of our entry level lawyers through our clerk and graduate programs.
