Becca Hogan joined Signature in 2015.

Rory also represented Julien Grout in the investigations into the high profile ‘London Whale’ trading losses.

Both partners took a leading role on the RBS Rights Issue Litigation, at the time the largest group action ever brought in the country.

Commenting on these promotions, partner Graham Huntley said: “It is very rewarding to be able to welcome as partners two talented lawyers who have developed within the firm. We are fortunate to be able to pursue our commitment to organic growth.”

Founded in 2012, Signature Litigation has grown on average more than 30% per year for the past seven years, with a turnover in 2020 of £22.4 million, and an annual profit share of 13.6% paid to all members of the Firm.

Commenting on her promotion, Becca said: “Becoming a Partner in such an inspiring firm is a very proud moment for me. I am very much looking forward to participating in Signature’s continued growth and success and in particular to grow Signature’s capabilities within group claims.”

Rory commented: “I am very proud to have been a part of and to witness Signature’s success over the years as a conflict-free and disputes only law firm. Signature is a compelling proposition for clients and I am looking forward to working with Becca and our partners to continue to build on that.”
