Two top family lawyers have joined Thursfields Solicitors because of what they have described as the company’s “great reputation” and its “vision for the future”.
Susanne Leach has been appointed as an Associate Solicitor at the firm’s Kidderminster office, joining from Greens Solicitors in Birmingham.
Meanwhile, Eilidh Rose has joined Thursfields as a Solicitor at the Birmingham and Solihull offices, recruited from the specialist family law firm Benussi & Co.
Their appointments means the Family Law team at Thursfields has grown by well over a third in the last year, following a 23 per cent increase in turnover, and now has 13 fee earners across all its offices.
Susanne, who worked in the banking and retail sectors before retraining in law at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “I’m pleased to be joining Thursfields because it’s a growing, dynamic firm with a great reputation.”
Susanne, who also worked at Benussi & Co for 11 years before her time at Greens, is experienced in dealing with divorce, separation and children matters, and is an expert on complex finance in divorce cases involving several properties, a family business and various pension plans.
Eilidh studied at what is now the University of Law in Birmingham and then trained and worked at Blythe Liggins in Leamington Spa before her time at Benussi & Co, where she specialised in all areas of family law with a focus on high net-worth divorces.
She said: “I was attracted to Thursfields because of their values and their vision for the future. It is an exciting time to join the firm when they are expanding into new markets and building a strong family team.”
Shane Miller, Director of the Family Team at Thursfields, said: “We’re delighted to welcome two more experts to our Family Team as we continue to expand.
It’s refreshing to hear how the Thursfields’ success story is attracting top lawyers to join us, and we look forward to more growth in the future.”
