Over the years DMH Stallard has established itself as a leading law firm in the region. For the last 18 years, the former Managing Partner, Tim Aspinall, has successfully steered the firm through change and challenges. Now Richard Pollins has taken over the reins, and he speaks to Ian Trevett about his ambitions and plans for DMH Stallard.
After 24 years at the firm, Richard Pollins was appointed Managing Partner at the start of 2015. “I think I am what you will call a lifer,” says Richard. “But I am not alone. Three members of the current management team were all in the same trainee intake together back in 1990. Our Chairman, Rustom Tata, our senior litigation partner, Tim Ashdown, and I all trained together and grew up through the ranks. Simon Elcock, who is our regional Head of Dispute Resolution, and Tina George, Head of our Real Estate department, were also both trainees. The firm has an excellent track record of attracting and retaining good people.”
