Thursfields has recently received its best Legal 500 ratings to date and earlier in the year won Birmingham Law Society award for Law Firm of the Year (5 to 15 partners) and the new recruits to the Family law team can only add strength to the firm’s offering to clients.
The firm welcomes four new recruits: Kelly Pougher joins the Solihull team from local firm Sydney Mitchell. Kelly has dealt with all types of martial and children issues and has particular expertise in complex and sensitive children matters. Hannah Nicholls joins Thursfields from West Midlands firm Higgs and Sons and takes an empathetic and responsive approach to her work, putting the client first. Hannah will be rolling out a ‘Grandparents Group’ shortly.
Laura Williams joins the firm from Hallmark Hulme in Worcester. Laura deliveries expertise in all family and divorce matters to include complex separation issues. Alexandra Carr also joins the team from George Green in the Black Country to work alongside Pam Arrowsmith at Thursfields’ Halesowen office to assist with continued delivery of excellent service and respond to increased demand from clients.
Shane Miller, head of the Family Department at Thursfields said “it is extremely exciting to welcome the four new recruits to the department. The department has seen over 17% growth over the last financial year and we recognise the need to deliver on service and complexity in line with our clients’ demands. We are described by the legal 500 as “one of the best family departments outside of Birmingham” and our family team is noted for its excellence.
