We are very excited to announce that Adrienne Trumbull and Ella Cannon have been promoted to Associate Principals. Adrienne and Ella are fabulous examples of what we stand for at Hive. They are successful ‘work /life integrators’ (as we like to say), they are committed to improving the experience for our clients by thinking innovatively and providing exceptional legal assistance, and they bring energetic enthusiasm and encouragement to our team. We are very lucky to have people like Adrienne and Ella helping us to continue our journey to ‘change things up’ in the legal profession.

Adrienne joined Hive two years ago, bringing her extensive experience both in private practice and in-house across the health, private health insurance and technology sectors. She takes a commercial approach to working with clients on corporate, contracting and transactional matters to achieve practical outcomes for their business.  Her commitment to providing real value to clients is reflected in the fact that she has recently further enhanced her value pricing skills to enable her and Hive to provide even more value and cost certainty to our clients.  Adrienne says ‘I feel very fortunate to be part of such a high calibre, supportive and forward thinking team, while also being able to partner with fantastic clients.  Hive’s flexibility offers exceptional opportunity to align legal services with clients’ needs, and I am so excited to be driving this forward with Hive.’

Ella has been an integral part of the Hive team since early 2016, advising clients on a broad range of commercial and regulatory issues within both the private and public sector. She has deep expertise in the fast changing health sector, with a particular focus on digital health and privacy and data protection. Ella is committed to redesigning legal services and outputs for her clients, which is exemplified by the role she recently played in collaborating with a digital design agency to produce an innovative and ground-breaking visual privacy policy.  Ella says ‘It’s very rewarding to be part of a firm that prides itself on legal excellence and client-led delivery of service, offers genuine flexibility and encourages out-of-the-box thinking.  For me, this is a really exciting opportunity to play a bigger role in the future of a firm that I really believe in.’
