Fenwick Elliott promotes Leonie Sellers, Mark Pantry and Edward Farren to the partnership

Fenwick Elliott, the UK’s largest specialist construction law firm, has promoted Senior Associates Leonie Sellers, Mark Pantry and Edward Farren to the partnership. 

Leonie Sellers joined Fenwick Elliott’s international hub in Dubai from Simmons & Simmons in 2022 as a highly regarded construction litigator with a focus on the Middle East. Her promotion reflects the continued growth of the firm’s Dubai office, which has doubled its number of instructions over the past year.

Non-contentious specialist Mark Pantry joined the firm’s London office from Trowers & Hamlins in April 2019. During his time at Fenwick Elliott he also spent nine months on secondment with international contractor Lendlease. He becomes the third partner in the firm’s non-contentious team, supporting clients on the up-front negotiation of their contracts and ongoing project and contract management.

Edward Farren joined Fenwick Elliott in 1999. He has a focus on business development, and his promotion to Business Development Partner recognises his contribution to the firm’s growth and client relationships.

Senior Partner Simon Tolson comments:

“We are thrilled to promote Leonie, Mark and Edward as Partners. They are a key part of the firm’s focus on providing a market-leading team of specialists for construction and energy, and we are delighted that they have been promoted from our exceptional team of associates. 

“Their promotions span our London office and international hub in Dubai, our disputes and non-contentious teams, as well as our business services – representing our continued investment and strong performance across the firm’s markets and offer to clients. Our congratulations go to all three.”
