Thursfields Solicitors has won a top title in the national Family Law Awards 2018.
The Family Law department scooped the ‘Family Law Firm of the Year’ trophy for the Midlands at a glittering awards ceremony at The Ballroom, South Bank in London on 28 November.
Award judges praised Thursfields for having a “passionate and ambitious” Family Law department, said they were impressed with its “strong client testimonials” and highlighted its volunteering efforts for a local hospice.
Shane Miller, head of Thursfields’ Family Law department, said: “We’re delighted to have won this title which reflects the strong growth and great achievements at Thursfields.
Awards like leave me very proud of the team and I know it will make us even more determined to maintain and refine the quality services and focus on the client that Thursfields always delivers.”
Thursfields increased its turnover by 20 per cent in the last financial year, while the growing Family Law department achieved 23 per cent growth in revenues.
Meanwhile, the Family Law team grew by well over a third in the last year and now has 13 fee earners across all Thursfields’ offices.
Shane added: “This success at Thursfields’ Family Law department being recognised as one the leading advisers in the Worcestershire and West Midlands area is based on the team’s skilled and cohesive approach.”
The award follows recent plaudits in the latest edition of ‘industry bible’, The Legal 500, which praised Thursfields for providing a “first class service in family law” with strong capabilities in financial proceedings and children’s cases.
It also described Shane’s leadership of the team as “very competent” and “switched on” and said she “has a knack of finding the right solutions to cases”.
Outside work, Thursfields’ Family Law department is also actively involved in charity work, with the team last year working together to help to restore an unused garden area for residents at The Mary Stevens Hospice, in Stourbridge.
The national Family Law Awards were sponsored by Lexis Nexis, the legal research and intelligence group.
