Thursfields is delighted to welcome Janice Leyland as a Senior Associate Solicitor to its busy Family team. Janice’s recruitment comes in response to increased client demand and following on from an extremely successful 2016 for the firm. Having been last year’s winner of Birmingham Law Society’s ‘Law Firm of the Year’ award (5-15 Partners), Thursfields has recently been short listed in the same category again for the award in 2017. The firm has also opened a new office in Solihull adding to its well established core presence across Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
Janice joins Thursfields from Somerset firm Maitland Walker and has in excess of 17 years legal experience. She has acted for a large number of clients and specialises in all areas of family law.
Shane Miller, head of family law at Thursfields said “The Family team achieved significant growth during the last financial year. We are very excited to have Janice joining the team which already consists of more than nine lawyers. She will be able to offer further assistance to clients and has a wealth of experience to provide assistance to our growing family team. Our team is dynamic and committed to delivering exceptional service to our clients across Worcestershire and the West Midlands.”
