Law firm Anthony Collins (AC) has announced the appointment of Matt Wort as senior partner, following nearly two decades at the company.
Since joining AC in 2005, Matt has specialised in employment law for the firm’s health and social care clients and has played an integral role in the company’s journey to becoming a leading social purpose law firm.
In his new role, Matt will continue to support AC’s work as a sector specialist national law firm and the first firm with a Midlands head office to become B Corp accredited, recognising the social purpose and environmental values of the company.
Matt’s appointment follows the promotion of four senior associates, four associates and one legal director across AC’s specialist sectors of local government, housing, health and social care, charities and social business, in the May promotions round.
Peter Hubbard, who has served as senior partner since 2014, has moved to take on the role of managing partner for the firm.
Matt Wort said: “The journey Anthony Collins has been on over the last 50 years to become a leading social purpose law firm has been built on our team’s dedication to going above and beyond for our clients in the important work they do to improve lives, communities and society.
“Since joining AC in 2005, I’ve seen first-hand the fantastic teamwork and commitment of all the staff and partners here to social purpose which has been essential in our success. As we continue to grow as a firm, we are focused on becoming the firm that people aspire to work for because of the great work that we do for our clients and the way that we do it.
“Our recent B Corp accreditation is a good metric for measuring the impact of this social purpose work, and the positive wider impact AC has for clients and the communities they serve as well as our environmental impact.
“In my new role, I am focused on continuing to build on AC’s goals of putting social purpose at the forefront of everything we do, and supporting our clients in their work across our key sectors including the private client team, social business, health and social care, charities, social housing and local government.”
Peter Hubbard added: “With such a strong purpose and shared goal at Anthony Collins, it’s essential that we recruit passionate people who share this vision to improve lives through the work they do, and I know Matt inspires people who want to work for a law firm with social purpose at its heart to spend their career making a positive difference in society.
“Matt’s deep commitment to using the law as a force for good aligns well with our recent B Corp accreditation. Being a B Corp is all about transforming the economy to benefit all people, communities and the planet.”
AC issued its fifth social impact report this year, which showed that 94% of the firm’s work has a direct positive social impact on its clients and wider society.
