Thursfields law firm has been steadily developing its service offering to clients over the past few years to become a regionally-based full service legal provider.
Significant recruits from city and leading regional firms, including recent leadership hires of Helena Morrissey as director of employment and HR, and Ian Bond as director of wills and estates, has seen the firm develop its talent in core areas.
The results are reflected in the latest Legal 500 rankings, a guide which offers those buying legal services up-to-date information and recommendations on law firms.
Michelle O’Hara, managing director of Thursfields said: “The Legal 500 seeks feedback directly from clients and other professional service providers. It is good to see legal sector recognition for our experienced lawyers and the talent capability we are developing, which is also key to delivering excellence in customer service.”
Thursfields’ corporate team ranked highly and is described as a “client driven” team which is “professional, honest and acts as a team with other advisers for the greater good of their clients”.
The employment lawyers at Thursfields are noted for being “highly knowledgeable and efficient” and dealing with matters “with exceptional expertise and empathy”.
The firm’s strength in family law is recognised in its continuing Tier 1 ranking. The team attracts clients from all over the UK and is noted for being “friendly and accessible but also has the benefit of considerable experience and expertise”.
Also delivering for Thursfields’ individual clients is the trusts and probate team which is described as having a “warm, caring attitude towards clients. Attention to detail to ensure it is doing the best for its clients”.
The claimant personal injury team is recognised for handling “difficult and complex claims in a caring but pragmatic manner”.
Michelle said: “This year’s feedback highlights the importance our lawyers place on keeping focus on the client’s end goal while delivering a professional and personable service.”
